Initially sparked by a post on an Instagram account, rumors linked Taylor Swift romantically to former Alpine driver Fernando Alonso. Alonso playfully addressed the speculation on TikTok. However, these rumors faded as the songstress became linked with Kelce. Recent reports suggest Swift is now spending time with NFL star Travis Kelce, attending his football game, reigniting dating rumors. While the duo hasn’t confirmed their relationship, Swift’s connection with Kelce is fueling significant public interest and speculation.

This news follows a series of strategic investments in the Alpine F1 Team, with the initial group already including notable names such as Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney. The team’s current sponsors include BWT, Binance, Microsoft/Xbox, Castrol, Qatar Airways, Kappa, and Sprinklr.
