Can Lewis Hamilton Pip Nicole Scherzinger To Win The F1 Title?

by | 24th, November 2014

Lewis Hamilton the Formula One drivers’ contest. The news media goes wild for the circus. And the newspapers have to decide if they lead with the British sportsman who stood in his car and waved the Union flag, or focus on his American lover Nicole Scherzinger:


The Sun: Lewis and Nicole Scherzinger both win! He drove. She worked wonders with the radio.

In the Daily Mail, it was all Nicole. She wins! And those bitten nails have recovered well.

The Times leads with Lewis and Nicole. What she dosn’t know about traction is not worth knowing.

Likewise on the Indy.

The Mirror leads with the Lew & Nic show. It graciously photoshops Lewis into the picture of the beaming Nicole.

The Daily Star has no photograph of Nicole in a bikini. The paper that once supported the EDL leads with the mixed-race Briton waving the flag and a neat headline. The Star is winning.

The Express prefers to overlook Lewis Hamilton and focus on how great Ukip are. The mixed-race British champion can wait for Nigel Farage to tell us how he’ll send ’em back.

What no Nicole? The Telegraph realises that Lewis Hamilton’s car had no passenger seat.

And the Guardian, too. He sat alone in the car.

Lewis: 7 front page; 7 front page photos; 2 solo

Lewis Hamilton narrowly pips Nicole to the F1 title. Better luck next year, Nicole.
