Pimenta, 24, is the daughter of Oliveira’s father’s second wife Cristina and it was the driver’s dad Paulo who revealed the exciting news.

He told Marca: “I’m happy that my son is getting married to the woman of his life.”

Oliveira himself previously opened up about falling for his step-sister before admitting they had planned to wed this year.

Speaking to Manuel Luis Goucha, the Portuguese said: “Before love there was a great friendship. We grew up together.

“At some point we realized that it was more than a friendship, it is a very strong love.

“We were going to get married this year, but that weekend I had a race and we had to postpone it next year.”

The lastest news means 24-year-old Oliveira has been celebrating on and off the track.

It comes after he won the MotoGP prize at the Styria Grand Prix for the first time in the history of Portuguese motorcycling.

He said: “Just screaming and pure joy to have done it finally.

“I saw this coming already quite a few races ago.

“I felt we had the potential to do it, so finally to be able to do it is a huge boost to be able to continue like this.”
