The former Victoria's Secret model has been dating the racing champ since May and it looks like things are heating up between them.

Palvin (22) was on hand to cheer on her new beau as he won the Grand Prix in her native Hungary and they were pictured hugging after his victory.

Neither are stranger to high profile romances with Palvin previously linked to Niall Horan and Justin Bieber and Hamilton ended his xx year on/off relationship with Nicole Scherzinger in October of last year.

In May, the couple were pictured together as Hamilton took home the Monaco Grand Prix title. The pair are believed to have first met through roles as L'Oreal Paris brand ambassadors and were said to have hit it off during the Cannes Film Festival in May.

Meanwhile, the swimwear model who was named Rookie of the Year in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, said she was "fat shamed" after her spread ran in the magazine.

She tweeted that she had received "nasty comments about being fat" after her appearance in the publication, while hundreds of fans rushed to tell her she's beautiful.

But she hit back, saying she does what "works best for her body" and trains five times a week.

"They [SI] really support feminine women. And now with Ashley Graham, I think it’s amazing what she stands for and what Sports Illustrated did. I think she is an amazing choice," she said.
