McLaren driver Lando Norris has announced breakup with his girlfriend Luisinha Oliveira only a few months after making their relationship public.
The two finally admitted they were dating in January after months of rumors through a romantic Instagram post as Norris referred to the Portuguese model as his “sunshine.” However, the two have subsequently made the decision to part ways, with McLaren star Norris revealing their breakup on social media.
“Hello everyone… After time and consideration, Luisa and myself have mutually decided to end our relationship but remain good friends,” Norris wrote on Instagram. “I wish her the world and have so much respect for her and all she does as an amazing and strong woman with nothing but kindness.”
“Please respect our decision and respect our… but more importantly and especially her privacy moving forward. Thank you for your endless support.”
Although Oliveira posted a cryptic message on her own Instagram account on Wednesday night, she has not yet commented on the breakup.
“Enjoy every given moment,” She wrote.
The breakup of Norris and Oliveira is unexpected given how happy they appeared in a four-week-old Instagram post. Oliveira shared a photo of herself and the Formula One driver wearing purple tops and grinning, along with the message, “Matchy match.”
As a social media influencer and model on Instagram, where she frequently shares her photos, Oliveira has 406,000 followers. The 22-year-old is the younger sister of Portuguese actor Beatriz Barosa.
Prior to Sunday’s Dutch Grand Prix, McLaren will be hoping that Norris won’t let his breakup consume too much of his thoughts. He will be aiming to surpass his Zandvoort Circuit performance from last year, when he finished in tenth place.
