The Formula 1 ace and the 22-year-old model headed to Tinie Tempah's London studio last week to put some beats down on a tune because the 31-year-old racing car driver thought she would be a "good influence" to help him kick-start his pop career.

A music source said: "Lewis has been trying for years to make a hit and invited Winnie down to the studios to act as his muse - just like a photographer or artist would when they are creating.

"She's from Canada and it's all about Canadian vibes right now with Drake and Justin Bieber dominating the charts.

"Lewis thought she'd be a good influence.

"They were both there and playing music and putting down their beats."

However, it's not known when fans will ever hear the song, but he is said to be pleased with the collaboration with the brunette star, who he has been romantically linked to for two months.

The source added to The Sun newspaper: "There are no plans for release yet but everyone in the studio was really impressed.

"It's a very exciting time for Lewis."

This comes after Lewis - who dated former Pussycat Dolls singer Nicole Scherzinger on and off for eight years - took singing lessons late last year in a bid to perfect his vocal range.

A source said at the time: "Lewis is very savvy and wants to be the best at everything he does - even when it comes to his music.

"He's got a vocal coach who does exercises with him and teaches him how to keep his voice in the best condition."
