Alexander Smolyar


Alexander Smolyar had a good career in karts winning a national title in KFJ and the Andrea Margutti Trophy in OK after which he made a successful move to single-seaters. He was third in SMP F4 NEZ, and did even better in Spain filling the runner-up spot in the F4 Championship with eight victories, more than any of his rivals. Renault Sport Racing invited him to take part in the Formula Renault Eurocup rookie tests in which the SMP Racing protégé impressed and he will race in the category with the Tech 1 Racing team. His aim? “Not to be happy with a place in the top 10!”
