Lewis Hamilton still loves Nicole Scherzinger

Lewis Hamilton refuses to rule out a reconciliation with Nicole Scherzinger, insisting, "I still love her very much."

The British Formula 1 racing driver called off his romance with the Pussycat Dolls star last month (Oct11) after four years together but he still envisages a future with the singer.

He says, "We still have very, very strong feelings for each other and I still love her very much. You know, it's still very early days. Who knows, maybe we'll be together in the future."

Lewis Hamilton also addressed paparazzi photos of a tense meeting between the former couple in Los Angeles on Monday (21Nov11).

He explains, "You didn't catch us at the best of times. But what you didn't see is that we had a really good week. We had a couple of really nice lunches together and that day we had a really nice dinner. It was a really positive few days. I came away from L.A. feeling great and things are getting into perspective."
