Nicole Scherzinger and Lewis Hamilton are planning a series of secret meetings
The `Don`t Hold Your Breath` hitmaker and the Formula 1 driver - who split in October after a four-year relationship - are hoping to reunite to spend some "proper time" together over the coming weeks now Lewis` hectic racing season has drawn to a close.
An insider told The Sun newspaper: "It`s a struggle to maintain a blossoming relationship during the F1 season.
"Lewis is so busy and in a different country every other week. When they can`t see each other they use things like Skype, but that`s no substitute for the real thing. With no F1 distractions, Lewis aims to spend some proper time with Nicole. He can`t wait."
Despite the split, Lewis recently admitted the couple still have "strong feelings" for each other, and are hopeful they can give their relationship another try.
He said: "We still have very, very strong feelings for each other and I still love her very much. Who knows, maybe we will be together in the future?
"We`re friends and we can move forward. These times are sent to try you, it`s about how you pull through. I have my family who are helping, so I feel pretty good."
