Taylor and Fernando, sitting in a tree ...
 
Rumor has it they're dating.

 

This is going to break the internet.

BREAKING: Taylor Swift just admitted that she wrote ‘Style’ about Fernando Alonso. 
“I am a big fan of Formula 1, so of course, the moment I saw him, he inspired me to write the song about him. And the rest is history.”

No way this is true, when did Alonso even had time to meet her?  :stoned:

One story I saw said it's only been a week or so, so ... 

 

Obviously just a rumor. I have no idea.

As a ‘big fan’ of F1, I’m sure she swooned the moment she saw him as a chubby-faced teen in 2001 lining up at the back of the grid in a Minardi.

 

True love.

I’m sure Fernando knows better than to drive around at midnight without his headlights on.

As an 11 year old at that time, she had her room filled with the only Minardi posters and Alonso merch that were sold that year by Minardi.

Maybe she did. Maybe she only became a fan of F1 a few years go and he caught her eye then - he certainly matured nicely. Maybe she does follow F1 but didn't really notice Fernando as a man until they met in person. Why does it matter when she became a fan?

 

Maybe she doesn't speak a lot about it because of men constantly making sniping remarks about women fans and trying to undermine their love of the sport.

 

Anyway, I'm pretty sure this is a spoofy rumour started by some mischievous folks on the internet.

On a serious note, Liberty/FOM would absolutely cream their pants if Alonso and Swift hooked up. They would see the dollar signs everywhere.

Maybe she is a big fan of F1 since 2019?

Hopefully not because of Drive to Survive or this forum will eat her alive.

Wait until they find out about the links between F1 and Ticketmaster (through Liberty Media's shares of Live Nation)...

Don't take everything so seriously - it was with tongue firmly in cheek.

Yep. It would be almost as good as it would be if a storied U.S. racing name and a major manufacturer hooked up to enter F1! 

 

Oh. Wait.

BREAKING: I finally listened to a Taylor Swift song.

 

I guess it could be from a superficial perspective.

For me, the best song/lyrics representing the essence of Alonso is The Distance by Cake.

What we need is a photo of Fernando with his hair slicked back and a white t-shirt from his late Ferrari days to know for sure.

No no no… You’ve got the story all wrong.
FERNANDO wrote a song for Taylor called:

“No, YOU watch my back”

I was at the recording session.

I like how the 'source' for this is just some random Twitter account. It's a bit late for April Fool's now, isn't it?

 

And I hate to be that person (and don't ask how I know this), but I believe she wrote that particular song about Harry Styles, who, last time I checked, is very like Fernando Alonso...apart from in every single way imaginable.  :lol:

The next single:

Verse 1:
On the track, he's like a firework display
With every move, my heart starts to sway
The way he drives, it's like he's in a trance
I can't help but fall deeper with every glance

Pre-Chorus:
I never thought I'd find love in a place like this
But watching him race, my heart can't resist

Chorus:
Fernando, oh Fernando
My heart races every time you go
You're the champion of my heart, don't you know
Fernando, oh Fernando
Your speed, your passion, your drive
I'm yours forever, let's take a victory lap and thrive

Verse 2:
I've seen him on the podium, holding the trophy high
With a smile on his face, he catches my eye
He's like a prince, ruling the track with ease
Watching him race, my heart skips a beat with each tease

Pre-Chorus:
I never thought I'd find love in a place like this
But watching him race, my heart can't resist

Chorus:
Fernando, oh Fernando
My heart races every time you go
You're the champion of my heart, don't you know
Fernando, oh Fernando
Your speed, your passion, your drive
I'm yours forever, let's take a victory lap and thrive

Bridge:
I don't need a fairytale to find my happy ending
With you, my heart is always ascending
Every race, every turn, every victory lap
I'll always be by your side, cheering and clapping

Chorus:
Fernando, oh Fernando
My heart races every time you go
You're the champion of my heart, don't you know
Fernando, oh Fernando
Your speed, your passion, your drive
I'm yours forever, let's take a victory lap and thrive.

Well, I suppose given the culling of Twitter blue ticks to everyone except permanently-online weirdos/'celebrities' who can't think of anything better to do with $8 a month, this particular tweeter has as much credibility as anyone else these days. So it must be true!  :lol:

"Can you see the lights Fernando?"

There was Red Bull on the pole that night

Your car was right, Fernando

Lights were shining there for you, and see

You're on row three, Fernando

Though you never thought he'd lose

There's no regret

When you had to leave the Mac again

You did, my friend, Fernando...

It's not even that. It's what someone's posted as just a joke, it would appear. 

 

So, I'm not sure quite why this needs a thread, but hey, whatever. Maybe this can be the new "Lewis snubs Croydon!" thread.  :lol:
