Tinie Tempah: Lewis Hamilton's songs "really good"

Rapper Tinie Tempah claims that Formula 1 world champion Lewis Hamilton's music is "actually really good".

Rapper Tinie Tempah has said that songs recorded by Formula 1 champion Lewis Hamilton are "actually really good".

The Mercedes driver, who leads this year's F1 drivers' standings, spends some of his time away from the racetrack writing and recording music.

"I heard one of his songs when I was in LA recording two weeks ago. He played me one of his songs and it's actually really good, I'm not going to lie to you," The Mirror quotes the 'Pass Out' rapper as saying.

"It doesn't even sound like Lewis Hamilton. It's really, really good. It's interesting. I'm curious to see how people will react to it.

"At first I was a little bit apprehensive. But after I heard the record, I was like, yeah, why do we put people into boxes? Like, if you're an actor, don't you dare do a song, or if you're Arnold Schwarzenegger don't run for Governor of California."

Hamilton, who has recently been romantically linked with model Kendall Jenner, takes part in the Austrian Grand Prix this weekend.
