Pussy Cat Doll & her Top Dog: Nicole Sherzinger walks with her boy friend Lewis Hamilton, now the youngest world champion in Formula 1 history. He barked past Timo Glock on the final corner of the final lap of Brazilian Grand Prix to finish fifth and beat local boy Felipe Massa to the championship by one point. Hamilton is the first British driver to become world champion since Damon Hill in 1996.

Hamilton’s ancestors came to England from Grenada and he first stepped into a kart as a six-year old while on vacation in Spain. His father and manager Anthony worked for British Rail and was the guiding force in keeping Lewis on the right track. Nurtured and sponsored by McLaren-Mercedes from his early karting days, Hamilton has been a phenomenal success in all stages of his racing career. In only two years on the F1 circuit he has nine Grand Prix wins, a championship and a second place by one point in 2007 to his credit.

Nicole is a product of another island ocean away. She was born in Hawaii to a Filipino father and a Russian mother. Her last name is from her step-father and is the lead vocalist for Pussy Cat Dolls.
