Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton is planning to shell out almost $1 million for seats aboard the first commercial flight of Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic SpaceShipTwo.

The space trip is slated for 2010 and Hamilton is said to be bringing his father Anthony and girlfriend Nicole Scherzinger, of the Pussycat Dolls, along for the ride.

William Shatner, however will not be on the flight.

Neither is a fiery crash with the vomit hovering over me. I do want to go up but I need guarantees I’ll definitely come back.”
