Lewis Hamilton: 'I've Lost Someone Special'
Motor racing star opens up about split from Nicole Scherzinger...
The Formula One driver and the former Pussycat Doll - who had been dating for five years - parted company recently, with their busy schedules blamed for the split.
In an interview with Sky Sports, the F1 star revealed that he was finding the break-up tough, saying: "You have different people who are able to keep in their emotions - I have a Finnish trainer, for example, who doesn't show any emotion and they are always able to control it.
"Me, I wear my heart on my sleeve and that gets me in trouble a lot of the time and I generally find it very, very hard to fight my emotions."
Hamilton went on: "I'm going through... I'm trying my hardest to be positive but I'm going through a really, really tough time at the moment with the loss of someone really, really special in my life.
"My world's turned upside down, but I have a job."
He added: "So I'm really trying to pull myself together and keep my head up, but it's so hard to do."
Scherzinger is also said to be "heartbroken" over the split, but has been throwing herself into work.
