But who is Lara Alvarez? Born in Gijon, Spain, on May 29, 1986, Lara Alvarez is a well-known journalist and presenter. Since 2006, she has been working for a number of different news organisations. She started out at Telemadrid, before moving on to Animax, TeleAsturias, MARCA TV, Cuatro, Antena 3, and finally Mediaset Spain. At the start of 2024, however, she announced that she was leaving Mediaset after ten years of loyal service, to embark on 'a new professional path'.

Last but not least, she is the ambassador of the shoe brand, Carmela.

Fernando Alonso's other relationships

Fernando Alonso and women have an interesting past. The Aston Martin driver is currently in a relationship with Melissa Jimenez, who is also a Spanish journalist and, above all, the former girlfriend of Spanish footballer Marc Bartra. Before that, the Spaniard dated another journalist, Austrian this time, in the person of Andrea Schlager. They stayed together for one year, between 2022 and 2023.

The ex-Ferrari driver was married once, in 2006, to Raquel del Rosario, who was none other than a star. Indeed, the young woman was the lead singer of the Spanish pop-rock band El Sueño de Morfeo. Their marriage lasted until December 20, 2011, when they divorced. A few months later, the Don Juan of asphalt made his relationship with Dasha Kapustina official. And who is she? Nine years his junior, she was a Russian model, who today describes herself as a 'nutritionist'. They remained a couple for around two years, with one separation. What do (almost) all these women have in common? Fernando Alonso doesn't hesitate to show off with them at several Formula 1 Grand Prix.

Fernando Alonso is a Formula 1 legend. Now aged 42, he continues to excel on the track. At the wheel of his Aston Martin, his 2023 season was more than successful, with a final fourth place in the drivers' standings. His best finish in ten years came in 2013, when he finished second at Ferrari. Active in Formula 1 from 2001 to 2018 and again from 2021 to the present day, the Spaniard has appeared in 383 races (current series), for 22 pole positions, 106 podiums and 32 victories.
