FANS think that Fernando Alonso is dating the ex of a former Barcelona star after Taylor Swift romance rumours.
The F1 driver recently separated from long-term girlfriend Andrea Schlager last month.
Speculation over his next partner have spread with some linking him to singer Taylor Swift after she broke up with boyfriend of six years Joe Alwyn.
However, she is now dating The 1975 front man Matty Healy, leaving supporters with a new theory.
Alonso was pictured with a fan and eagle-eyed social media users think Melissa Jimenez is in the background.
This has fuelled rumours of the pair becoming a couple.

She used to be married to ex-Barca, now Trabzonspor defender Marc Bartra and has three kids with him.
Jimenez is a sports journalist, who works for DAZN.
She covers motorsport specifically and could have found romance with Alonso in the paddock.
Fans are buying into the theory due to them obviously crossing paths and after he previously dated a different reporter.
