Formula 1 star, Fernando Alonso has responded to rumor of dating American singer Taylor Swift.
Alonso, 41, confirmed his break from girlfriend Andrea Schlager earlier this month, around the same time Swift, 33, announced her split from long-term lover Joe Alwyn.
A TikTok post by the F1 driver fueled speculation that they were in a romantic connection.He is said to have commented on the video “Feeling 33,” which is a reference to the singer’s song “22.” In a viral video, Alonso was seen listening to the singer’s famous song ‘Karma’ before winking at the camera.
Ahead of the Azerbaijan Grand Prix this weekend, a reporter said to Alonso during an interview, “I have to ask this one or I would be leaving a Blank Space but and I know it is potentially your Love Story and nobody else’s..”
But before he could finish his question, Alonso deflected in his reply to the Grand Prix:
“Obviously, no I have nothing to say. I answered already. I have nothing to say. It is so complicated, the Baku format already, I am sure you have a lot of questions.”
He candidly addressed the rumours to Marca as he said:
“I usually keep my personal and professional life apart. I prefer not to comment on it.”
The Aston Martin driver has earned a reputation as a bit of a playboy over the years after a number of high profile relationships. He has had a good start to the current F1 season as he has finished third in each of the three races so far.
