Lewis Hamilton’s love life has somehow managed to overshadow his frightening crash with Max Verstappen at the Italian Grand Prix.
The Mercedes superstar reportedly went back to his New York hotel with OnlyFans model Janet Guzman after his appearance at the Met Gala on Monday.
Hamilton was among the 400 guests invited to the annual fundraising event at the Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art and was also spotted at the afterparty.
But it was his actions after he left The Met that has raised eyebrows, with photos purportedly showing him arriving back at his hotel with 27-year-old model Guzman
The Daily Mail published the photos on Tuesday, showing Hamilton and Guzman both arriving back at the hotel.
According to The Sun, the pair are close friends and enjoyed some more drinks at the hotel with a larger group of people.
Guzman had earlier taken to Instagram to show off her Met Gala outfit, captioning the photo: “Till next time.”
The 27-year-old has modelled for major brands like Fashion Nova, amassing 1.9 million followers on Instagram.
She has since joined the ‘OnlyFans’ movement, charging subscribers a monthly fee for exclusive content (usually of the X-rated variety).
Red Bull figure accuses Lewis Hamilton of faking injury
Formula One’s governing body is investigating the crash between Hamilton and Verstappen because it was ‘unusual’, according to the race’s Australian director Michael Masi.
Masi said that although the collision was relatively low-speed, the FIA’s safety experts would still take a look.
The crash saw Verstappen’s Red Bull lift up off a kerb and land on Hamilton’s Mercedes with the inside of a rear wheel hitting the seven-times world champion’s helmet through the protective halo.
“Incidents that are different, so it’s not necessarily high G impacts or anything like that, but are unusual, we do look at,” said Masi.
“Our safety department does look at them in detail, investigate and see what we can learn and what we can improve for the future. That’s how we have a whole lot of the safety features that we have today, and will continue to evolve into the future.
“We are already collecting all of the data, so we have all of the information and that will all go to our safety department together with any photographs and anything else we have along the way.”
Red Bull advisor Helmut Marko has since said claimed Mercedes and Hamilton blew the incident way out of proportion and even went as far as to suggest the Brit wasn’t really injured,
“It was a normal racing accident. All the stories around it were pulled up by the hair by Mercedes,” Marko told German newspaper Osterreich.
“Verstappen had already got out when Hamilton tried to go back to get out of the gravel.
“The medical car saw that and drove on. And then a show is put on that poor Hamilton is suddenly injured.”
Hamilton said he would probably need to see a specialist about his neck before the next race in Russia, while praising the role the ‘halo’ device played in preventing catastrophe.
