British Formula 1 racer Lando Norris has been doing the rounds on social media after he posted a series of pictures of him with what appears to be his girlfriend in Dubai.
The McLaren driver shared the snaps on Tuesday, showing him and 22-year-old Portuguese model Luisinha Oliveira in the desert with some friends.
It’s unclear how long the pair have been dating for, but the Briton has denied being in a relationship on several occasions over the last few years.
Oliveira, seemingly Norris’ girlfriend, is yet to post anything of the McLaren driver on her own Instagram account, though she did share a number of pictures and short videos of her in the Dubai desert.
Norris’ Instagram post was captioned “My sunshine”, and the revelation that he is dating has evoked a strong reaction on social media.
Ferrari driver Carlos Sainz, who raced alongside Norris for two seasons at McLaren, commented “It’s official”.
Quadrant, a gaming and apparel brand by Norris, also reacted to the post, commenting: “Wholesome content we love to see.”
Meanwhile, many Norris fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the fact he is dating, while others poked fun at just how much attention the story was attracting.
Norris will contest his fourth season in Formula 1 in 2022, having made his debut in the pinnacle of motorsport in 2019.
He has raced with McLaren for the entirety of his F1 career and has been retained by the Woking-based team for next season, after finishing sixth in the 2021 Drivers’ Championship.
