2007 championship runner-up Lewis Hamilton this week engaged in a night-time paparazzi race around London, British tabloid media report.

The 22-year-old claims to want a quieter life in Switzerland, but front page photographs depict the McLaren driver hopping around town with Naomi Campbell, a 37-year-old supermodel who is notorious for attracting attention.

Campbell, photographed smoking cigarettes while sitting next to Hamilton in a chauffeured car, famously dated Renault boss Flavio Briatore five years ago, and has also been linked with Mike Tyson, Robert de Niro, Usher, Eric Clapton, Sylvester Stallone and Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez.

“Lewis and Naomi’s antics on Tuesday suggests they have something to hide,” The Sun daily observed, noting that the pair even switched cars at one point in an attempt to shake off their pursuers.

The newspaper said the pair later tried to hide from the photographers as they went from a hotel to a restaurant, after a photo-shoot together for a men’s magazine.
