Formula One racecar driver Sebastian Vettel is diversifying his resume by becoming the Director of Performance for Infiniti, and it also sounds like his rival Lewis Hamilton is also dabbling in some extracurriculars. According to Yahoo!, the 28-year-old Hamilton has apparently been stealing away time in a recording studio to record his own pop music album over the last year. The report, which quotes singer/songwriter Angel, indicates that Hamilton might have a second career waiting for him after racing.

So far, Hamilton and Angel have written about 12 songs across various music genres, and another interesting element to his involvement in the music industry is that his girlfriend, Nicole Scherzinger (above), is the lead singer for the Pussycat Dolls as well as a former judge for the reality singing contest, X-Factor. For those who are interested, it doesn't sound like he's ready to put out an album just yet. For the moment, it appears Hamilton's duties in Austin, Texas will be limited to lapping the Circuit of the Americas rather than the performing on the local music scene.

Us? We're just hoping for an eventual duet with fellow F1 racer and musical hopeful Jacques Villeneuve. Yeah, we went there. In the meantime, we'll have to keep hope alive by watching Hamilton and friends sing Wonderwall by Oasis in one of the videos below.

          Pfft, when I was in the Army I was 5'9" 145 lbs and I trained with special forces (did Psyop) and SOF qualified all of my PT tests. I once fireman carried a 150lbs guy on my back while sprinting uphill and back twice, faster than all the other guys did. So, careful about what you call "little."

      Lewis Hamilton has been on a spiritual journey over past couple of years and it's only natural to attempt to put thoughts, emotions, experiences into music. I found myself doing something similar when I began to appreciate simplicity and beauty of nature after my horrific break-up, not a same thing I know, but close.

      It's cute how the peasants are quick to Yelp "hate" and "jealousy" when their idols are questions. "ermegherd I can't believe an anonymous internet poster questioned my god, "X-Famous person". They must be a hater loser in their mother's basement. That's the only explanation! Get a life you losers. Most famous people are turdz.

        Most famous people are narcissists. Since narcissists are driven to be at the center of attention and they are masters of false charm, more of them get to be famous. Furthermore, fame tends to bring out narcissistic traits in people who used to be good.
