Lewis Hamilton considers himself a ''free spirit''.

The reigning Formula One World champion - who's been linked to a host of women since his split from Nicole Scherzinger, including Rihanna - has revealed he's enjoying making music in his spare time and being linked to ''beautiful'' girls.

He shared: ''Yeah, I'm single. I'm not attached to anyone.

''I'm a free spirit so I'm just going in with no plans to settle down any time soon. I'm going to focus on my career. I'm enjoying my music.

''I've been associated with some really beautiful women. I don't even mind ... as long as they're beautiful women.''

Lewis revealed he's been taking advice from Rihanna about his own musical talents.

He told The Sun newspaper: ''I haven't had the chance to play her my music but earlier in the year she asked about it and how's it going.

''To be honest, when I make the music I'm just doing it because it's therapeutic. But I have people now that I'm working with who are like, 'Are you going to do something with this? This is really good'. But we'll see.

''I have no real plans on it, honestly. Just doing this fashion thing and my racing is enough and taking up a lot of my time.''
