Formula One World Champion Lewis Hamilton maybe the king of speed on the track but his new hairdo is anything but streamline. At the IWC Watch Gala in Geneva on Tuesday evening, the 29 year old driver debuted a softer curly afro which is taking him even further than his title.

The world champion is best known to keep a very close-cut shaved head but it appears the star is growing out his air for something big ... but what is it exactly? Is Nicole Scherzinger coming back to his life forever? Is he retiring from F1? What?

Lewis’ new hairdo wasn't the only thing that caught the attention however; his smart black suit and a very crisp Givenchy white shirt plus a delicious smile on his face, not forgetting his new watch, stole the night. It would appear the youngster is experimenting with his hair at the moment as he was also sporting some rather dubious facial hair.

Maybe testing his confidence in public, Lewis tweeted a picture of himself from his hotel suite bathroom saying, "Boss' or maybe he really wanted to say, "Guys what do y'all think of my new hairdo"?

Lewis Hamilton posed with supermodel Karolina Kurkova on the red carpet at the IWC Watch Gala in Geneva that same night when fans couldn't spot singer Nicole Scherzinger around.

Guys, would you rock Lewis' new hairdo too?
