Lewis Hamilton kept a low profile on Monday morning as he followed an attractive blonde out of his Beverly Hills Hotel cabana.
The Formula 1 ace, 36, kept his eyes shielded behind a pair of heavily tinted sunglasses while sheepishly making his way towards his parked Mercedes at around 9:30am.
Moments earlier a pretty female was seen emerging from the same cabana in a quilted jacket and high-slung jeans before climbing into a waiting Limousine.

As always Hamilton’s characteristically quirky wardrobe ensured he stood out, with the sportsman opting for a tie-dye sweater and paint spattered jogging bottoms.
He added to his look with a pair of lilac high top trainers, but it was his company who commanded significantly more attention during their separate departures.
Hamilton is relaxing in California after testing positive for COVID-19 less than 24-hours after winning the Bahrain Grand Prix on November 29th. He has since made a full recovery.

Lewis updated his fans in January on how he was feeling as he continued working on his fitness after recovering from the physical effects of COVID-19.
The driver has embarked on a gruelling fitness regime that involves altitude training since his Covid battle, and admitted a stay at an undisclosed mountain location had a positive impact on his mental and physical health.
Taking to Instagram, he wrote: ‘Hey World, I haven’t been on here for a while. I’m in the mountains training everyday, getting my mind and body right. I’m hiking to the top of the mountain every morning. 3 of those hikes I cross country ski once I get to the top which is at 3400m, killer.
‘I love altitude training, there is less oxygen high up so working out is much harder than at sea level, just walking up the stairs you feel it at 2000m. Normally when I finish training here and return to sea level running is such a breeze.’

He added: ‘I’m trying to find the right balance in cardio and strength building. On top of that, lots of work ongoing in the background. Many moving parts but just checking in to let you know I’m doing good, I’m healthy and mentally strong right now in my bubble.
‘I hope you are staying as positive as you can with all that is still going on. Keep your head up. I can’t wait to see you all again at some stage soon. Sending you love and light.’
The Formula 1 champion previously revealed he lost almost a stone in weight and had ‘really low strength’ after contracting the virus towards the end of last year.
Taking to Instagram in December, he shared a picture of himself in the gym and wrote: ‘I’ve lost 6kg over the past two months. Four of which I lost when I got Covid.

‘I’ve lost so much muscle. Starting from a low point in strength now, not fun but I’m determined to get my strength back and to be 100 per cent again. No pain, no gain.’
After testing positive, Hamilton spent 10 days in isolation at the beginning of December.
The sportsman admitted he had ‘one of the hardest weeks in some time’ after testing positive for COVID-19 which has put his participation in the final Formula One race of the season in jeopardy.
He finished third at the season-ending Abu Dhabi Grand Prix on Sunday 13 December, saying he felt ‘destroyed’ and just ‘happy to be alive’ after his race return.
The sportsman had previously taken to Twitter to thank his fans for their support while isolating in his hotel room in Bahrain, after the news of his positive COVID-19 test broke on December 1.
He said: ‘It’s definitely been one of the hardest weeks that I’ve had in some time. Just been focusing on recovering and getting back in shape so I can get back in the car and race the final race in Abu Dhabi.
‘I woke up today feeling great and got my first workout in early so wanted to send you guys positivity and let you know I’m OK.
‘I want to thank every single one of you for sending me the amazing messages and videos, I really appreciate it.’
‘I hope that wherever you are, you’re staying positive and fighting through whatever you’re facing. I hope that I can get back in the car soon. And I’m sending you guys love.’
It was revealed on December 1 that Lewis had tested positive for COVID-19 with the star missing the Sakhir Grand Prix and he faced an anxious wait to see if he will be able to take part in the season-ending Abu Dhabi GP.
