He may be the newly crowned Formula 1 World Champion but Lewis Hamilton certainly didn't cover himself in glory when he appeared on the Radio 1 Breakfast show this morning. During a music quiz, the driving ace failed to recognise one of his girlfriend Nicole Scherzinger's hit songs.

The Breakfast show presenter Nick Grimshaw was posing the hard questions to Hamilton by playing little bits of famous pop songs for him to guess. Hamilton did pretty well initially firing off a number of correct answers based on short snippets of songs. However, he hit a bit of a bump in the road when Grimshaw played a piece of Scherzinger's hit Scream which stumped Hamilton in his attempt to identify the song.

He was very quick in pointing out that Timbaland was involved on the track which was spot on as he produced the song. Hamilton eventually asked the DJ "Which one is that?” and Grimshaw informed him that it was in fact a song by his good lady. Mortified, he responded "I can’t believe you did that to me. I’m going to get it when I get home."

Hamilton, guessing he would be in big trouble when he got home, tried his best to charm his way out of the situation saying "The worst thing is that was a great song!" and followed that up by quipping "We weren’t together when she did that song!"

The couple are sure to have a good giggle over the whole thing next time they are together. They are flying on the crest of a wave at the moment after Hamilton's second World Title triumph in Abu Dhabi at the weekend and Scherzinger set to make her West End debut as Grizabella in the Andrew Lloyd Webber record breaking musical Cats.
