Feb.9 (PVM) Lewis Hamilton and former Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger appear to be on the verge of rekindling their relationship after their highly publicised split last year.

Reports in British tabloids have shown the smiling couple emerging, hand-in-hand, from a Hollywood steakhouse earlier this week.

After their break-up both Hamilton and Scherzinger confessed having deep feelings for one another.

Hamilton has admitted publically that last year his ‘head was not in the right place’ as he underwent the inevitable stresses relating to a realtionship break down.

The Sun quotes a source saying, “It’s early days. They’ve been talking things through. They don’t want things to move too fast.”

Scherzinger was in the news recently after she was axed from Simon Cowell’s X-Factor reality show.

Meanwhile, Hamilton is on testing duty for McLaren at Jerez, with his two day stint in the cockpit starting today (Thursday).
