Ferrari driver Carlos Sainz reacted to McLaren counterpart Lando Norris’ girlfriend reveal, and was soon joined by many fans on Instagram.
Norris broke the internet when he posted a picture of him embracing a woman. The woman in the post is 22-year-old Portuguese model Luisinha Oliveira. The two are in the deserts of the UAE with some friends.
No one knows how long the two have been dating. Given the McLaren driver has repeatedly denied being in a relationship over the last few years, it appears to be a recent courtship.
As a result, when the post came up, Sainz along with many others reacted to Norris’ girlfriend reveal.
The Spaniard, who raced alongside the young British driver and is his best friend on the grid, commented on the post, “It’s official”.
Norris’ gaming and apparel brand Quadrant also gave their thoughts on the post, saying, “Wholesome content we love to see.”
Norris has captioned the post ‘My sunshine’, which sent the internet into meltdown, in a wholesome way of course. Many fans commented on the situation of him dating, while others just had a laugh at how viral his post got.
Oliveira, meanwhile, hasn’t posted anything about the young Brit. However, she did share a couple of pictures and videos of her time in Dubai. The very fact that Norris dating her has garnered such an overwhelming response on social media is testament to his popularity and of people’s interest in him and his life.
He will be back next season and will continue to race for McLaren alongside Daniel Ricciardo. It will be his fourth season in the top flight of motorsport, his first coming all the way back in 2019.
