Fernando Alonso teases F1 fans with response to Taylor Swift rumours

Fernando Alonso has added fuel to the fire that he could be dating singer Taylor Swift after teasing fans with a cryptic social media post. Stunned fans of both the Aston Martin driver and Swift have learned of links between the two after the pair reportedly started seeing each other following their recent break-ups, and Alonso has done little to swerve away from such speculation.

Earlier this month, Alonso announced he and his partner Andrea Schlager had parted ways after they began dating last year, while Swift and her long-term boyfriend split just days later.

While nothing was made of the coincidental timing, a post appeared on Instagram gossip page Deux Moi’s story under the heading “Taylor Swift rumours” claiming the pair have been casually dating for a week.

Citing Spanish magazines as their source of information, it adds that the relationship is ‘nothing serious’: “According to them, the couple has been seeing each other for a week now. Nothing serious tho since they are both recently single,” the post read.

At the time of writing, there has been no public comment from Alonso or Swift to confirm or deny the story as rumours of their romance began to swirl around both the music world and F1 sphere.

That was until Alonso decided to stir the pot and keep fans on edge with his latest social media post, which will do little to dampen the talk about the superstar pair.

In a short clip uploaded to his official TikTok account, Alonso can be seen sitting on a chair listening to a sped-up version of Swift’s popular hit Karma with the caption reading: “Race week era” before winking at the camera.

The video contains clear references to Swift, who embarked on her sold-out Eras Tour in November.

The American singer is one of the most popular artists in the world, who has dated a number of A-list celebrities including Calvin Harris, Harry Styles, Tom Hiddleston and Jake Gylenhaal. The 33-year-old most recently announced that she was single after splitting with her long-term partner Joe Alwyn following a six-year relationship.

Alonso, meanwhile, was previously married to Raquel Rosario for six years before their divorce in 2011, and he called off his brief engagement to Lara Alvarez in 2016 due to conflicting work schedules.

The 41-year-old announced that he and his partner Schlager had parted ways in an amicable split after they started dating last year.

The couple had been spotted holding hands in the paddock and enjoying stunning holidays, but before the Australian Grand Prix, Alonso confirmed they had mutually decided to break up.

He posted a picture of the pair on his Instagram story alongside a heartfelt message revealing they were parting ways. The caption read: “We wanted to tell you that our relationship as a couple ended.

“We have been lucky enough to share a fantastic time together, and it will continue to be so, but on a different form of affection. As you have probably seen, we have continued working on and off track on various projects together also during this time, and we will keep doing so with deep love and respect for each other.”

While it seems unlikely Alonso and Swift have become an item and his recent hint could just be another case of his humour playing out, there have been more unlikely celebrity romances over the years. Only time will tell if the Shake it Off singer will be in attendance as the F1 circus makes its way to the USA for the Miami Grand Prix next month.
