F1 team unveil star-studded investor line-up including Taylor Swift romance

Formula 1 has always been a sport that attracts the rich and famous, with many a celebrity in attendance at various grands prix across the season.

But not every team can claim as exciting an investor line-up as Alpine, who have just been backed by some of the biggest names in the sporting world.

On Tuesday, Otro Capital announced a €200 million 'strategic investment in Alpine Racing Ltd', including a host of stars at the very pinnacle of football, NFL, boxing and golf.

Among the names of A-list stars now investing in Alpine, include Kansas City Chiefs tight end, Travis Kelce, who is heavily rumoured to be romantically involved with music superstar Taylor Swift.

Although neither have officially confirmed the relationship, the pair have been spotted together on numerous occasions, with Swift often in attendance at Kelce's NFL matches alongside his family.

“I am thrilled to lead an investor group and join forces with Patrick [Mahomes] and the team at Otro Capital on this exciting venture with Alpine F1," the NFL star said.

"Our shared passion for excellence and innovation forms the cornerstone of this partnership. It’s about being able to contribute to a sport that demands precision, teamwork, and relentless pursuit of success.

"I am looking forward to this new chapter and can’t wait to see what we achieve together.”

But that isn't where the celebrity investment ends, as Alpine have managed to attract a whole host of sporting talent.
