He may have 740 hp of hardcore power at his feet at the weekend, but Lewis Hamilton is just a softie at heart.

A reconciliation between himself and ex-girlfriend Nicole Scherzigner was secretly completed last night but he was caught out after his Mercedes getaway car broke down.

He was photographed by a cameraman cradling his beloved dog Roscoe after a seven hour meeting with Nicole. After trying to jumpstart the car, he then had to call in a mechanic to get it back on the road.

More photos are available from the source.
