Lewis Hamilton has been hanging out with some high-profile ladies lately

Earlier this week, Lewis Hamilton was insisting he was single, shutting down speculation that he was dating Rihanna after pics of the pair together surfaced.

It appears he’s very much enjoying his eligible bachelor status – he’s now been spotted strolling around New York with none other than Kendall Jenner. And if his recent quotes to The Sun are anything to go by, she’d better watch out – he’s determined to play the field for as long as he can.

‘I’m single. I’m not attached to anyone. I’m a free spirit…with no plans to settle down any time soon,’ he said in an interview. ‘I’m going to focus on my career. I’ve been associated with some really beautiful women. I don’t even mind…as long as they are beautiful women.’

Er…that’s a little bit shallow, Lewis! Still, it seems his plans to hang out with ‘beautiful women’ are going well for him. Kendall Jenner, who he first met at the Monaco Grand Prix in May, was pictured in New York with the racing star, although the pair walked apart, and looked anything but loved-up. Perhaps Kendall was miffed at the prospect of being nothing more than arm candy for Lewis?

Despite him making it clear that he’s not looking for anything serious, reports suggest that Kris Jenner would be keen for her daughter to date Lewis.

‘She really wants Kendall to date him,’ a source told The Sun. ‘Lewis and Kris have become friendly in recent months and she thinks he’s perfect for her daughter.’

Well, good luck setting these two up, Kris – it sounds like Lewis will take some convincing to settle down!
