Start your engines! Taylor Swift hasn’t wasted any time finding new material. Just a few weeks back news broke of Swift’s split from actor Joe Alwyn. Now fans are convinced that the singer is secretly dating Formula 1 star Fernando Alonso.
After rumors surfaced last week, Alonso poured gasoline on the fire by posting a TikTok video earlier this week set to the tune of her hit song “Karma.” In the clip, he also scrolled on his phone before looking at the camera and winking.
The F1 driver also referenced Swift’s song “22” when he commented, “Feeling 33.” Alonso captioned the video “Race week era😉,” referencing Swift’s ongoing Eras Tour.
A recent post on DeuxMoi explains: “A couple of Spanish magazines have been posting about TS and Spanish F1 driver Fernando Alonso.” Another one reads, “According to them, the couple has been seeing each other for a week now. Nothing serious tho since they are both recently single.”
While Alonso may be nothing like Swift’s usual type, in recent years Formula One racing has gained popularity among young American women. The Netflix documentary Drive to Survive has garnered a significant following, which has spilled over into the sport — it turns out that women like fast cars and hot men, who knew!
Earlier this month, Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn called it quits after six years together, over “differences in their personalities.”
According to a source that spoke with People after the breakup was first reported on April 8, the actor “struggled” with Swift’s level of fame. It was also said that Swift “didn’t see them working out in the long run.” The source added, “Taylor doesn’t have anything bad to say about Joe.”
Alonso has a reputation for being something of a playboy — all that time in Monaco can’t help — and has recently broken up with his girlfriend and sports commentator Andrea Schlager. Cockburn can’t wait for the next album…
