F1 driver Fernando Alonso ignites Taylor Swift dating rumors with TikTok post
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Fernando Alonso, a two-time Formula One world champion, responded to reports that he is dating Taylor Swift by uploading a video of him winking while listening to one of her hit songs. Last week, a post on the DeuxMoi Instagram story quoted an unnamed email that stated: "A couple of Spanish magazines have been posting about TS [Swift] and Spanish F1 driver Fernando Alonso." This was the first time the 41-year-old Spaniard had been romantically linked to Swift.
They claim that the couple had been seeing each other for a week at this point. However, nothing serious, as they were both recently single. Swift made news earlier this month when reports of her break from long-term boyfriend Joe Alwyn hit the internet, around the same time Alonso announced his split from fiancée Andrea Schlager.

In the TikTok video, the F1 legend is shown sitting down, looking through his phone, while Taylor Swift's hit song 'Karma' plays in the background. He glances up and winks at the camera, and captions the video "Race week era". He also adds the remark "Feeling 33" with a smiley emoji, which is believed to be a reference to Taylor Swift's song '22'.

'Never did we think in our Wildest Dreams this would happen'
The DeuxMoi Instagram posted a story that stated that "some of the emails posted are complete BS" and that it was "for entertainment purposes only," but that didn't stop followers from being overly enthusiastic about Alonso's reaction. One of the TikTok users commented, "Oh my god Taylor X Fernando confirmed????" Another user wrote, "Fernando, please confirm or deny, was mastermind written about you." The third user wrote, "Never did we think in our Wildest Dreams this would happen."
After allegedly meeting at the Met Gala in 2016, the 33-year-old and Alwyn dated Taylor for six years, during which time there were numerous rumors that they were engaged or secretly wed, as reported by Elle. They weren't captured together until 2017 in Nashville, Tennessee, more than a year after they first met. According to reports, during their early years together, they occasionally put on disguises to visit each other or go on outings together covertly. She frequently traveled clandestinely to his hometown of London.
'I think we have been successfully private'
Joe admitted to British Vogue in October 2018 that their relationship's secrecy was deliberate. He said, "I'm aware people want to know about that side of things. I think we have been successfully private." Alonso and sports analyst Schlager apparently met through Formula One but kept their relationship as hidden from the public as they could, as reported by GPfans.
