Moscow: Lewis Hamilton hinted Sunday that he has plans to marry long-term girlfriend Nicole Scherzinger, but that wedding bells are unlikely to sound soon.
Scherzinger denied that the pair were engaged in July 2011 following claims by her biological father that the pair were to marry.
When asked when they would finally tie the knot, the McLaren driver answered cryptically. "As for the wedding, it's going to be pretty tough to say yes at the moment," he said. "I need some more time to work on it."
The pair have reportedly had an on-off relationship since getting together in 2007.
Hamilton, 27, won the 2008 Formula One world championship and is fourth in this year's standings.
He is in Moscow on a promotion event for his team.
