Lando Norris spotted with former Chelsea star’s ex-girlfriend

Joao Felix had been on loan at Chelsea since January, before returning to the Spanish capital at the end of the season.

Ahead of last weekend’s Spanish Grand Prix, Lando Norris was spotted in Monaco with Margarida Corceiro, the ex-girlfriend of Atletico Madrid player and former Chelsea FC loanee Joao Felix.

Norris was seen driving Corceiro in a vintage car, ahead of finishing ninth at the Circuit de Monaco.

Felix, of course, was recently on loan at Chelsea FC; however, he has since returned to his parent side due to him not being in the plans of the West London club.

Felix and Corceiro split “some time ago”, with the pair having first gotten together in 2019.

She took to social media to share their separation and the fact that they’d remained “happy and friends”.

“Joao and I achieved goals together for a few years, in a phase of change, growth and learning,” she wrote.

“Not having been together as a couple for some time, I am lucky enough to be a part of his life. We appreciate all the messages from those who really care about us. We are fine, happy and friends as we always were.”

Corceiro was forced to deny allegations though, that she’d cheated on the Portuguese international, with one of his team-mates.

Rumours circulated that she’d slept with Felix’s team-mate, Pedro Porro; however, she denied the reports last May.

Now she’s heavily linked to the McLaren driver, following their time together in Monaco.

As well as being spotted in the same car, they were also seen eating together.

Should they be together, then she would’ve watched on as Norris endured a horrific end to the Spanish Grand Prix after clipping Lewis Hamilton.

Norris did incredibly well to qualify third for last weekend’s Grand Prix, before he clipped Hamilton on the opening lap.

The 23-year-old was forced to pit for a new front wing as a result, demoting him to last.

Due to McLaren’s poor race pace, Norris was only able to recover to 17th, marking a point-less afternoon at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya for the Briton.

Norris – who resides in Monaco – will be hoping for better fortunes next weekend at the Canadian Grand Prix, in a bid to make up for his opening lap racing incident in Spain.
