- Formula One star Lewis Hamilton opted for a rogue New Year’s Eve celebration
- Hamilton enjoyed a boat trip in Brazil along with model Juliana Nalu
Instead of a flash party or a big fireworks celebration, British Formula One star Lewis Hamilton was spotted enjoying a boat trip in Brazil on New Year’s Eve.
Heading into the new year, Hamilton faces a make or break 2024 with Mercedes aiming to rediscover a winning recipe after their recent struggles.
However, the F1 star took a step back from the track in order to celebrate the new year and opted for a rogue choice in activity.
As reported by Globo, Hamilton was spotted on a boat trip in Trancoso, Bahia on the final day of 2023, along with Brazilian model Juliana Nalú.
The duo, along with a number of friends, were seen on a large boat before transferring onto a smaller one to make a visit to some islands.

Hamilton was spotted leaving a party with Kanye West’s model ex-girlfriend Nalu in Brazil on Saturday – sparking speculating that they are dating.
The Formula One driver, 38, and the model, 25, were seen partying together at a pre New Year’s Eve bash in the stunning coastal resort of Transcoso, Brazil.
And fans later posted photos of Lewis and Juliana, who dated Kanye West and has been romantically linked on and off to the racing driver for some time, at an upmarket restaurant.
Videos published on social media showed the sportsman, who earlier this year was also rumoured to be getting close to Shakira, surrounded by bodyguards.
Lewis became an honorary citizen of Brazil in November last year.
Congressman Andre Figueiredo had first made the suggestion after the Brit won the Brazilian GP for a third time at Interlagos.
Lewis, a huge admirer of Brazilian racing icon Ayrton Senna when he was growing up, carried a green and yellow Brazilian flag on his victory lap and at the podium to celebrate with local fans.
In his last visit to the country last month for the Sao Paulo Grand Prix, he said he would return to the South American country at the end of the season.
