Alexander Smolyar


After winning a national title in KFJ and the Andrea Margutti Trophy in OK, Alexander Smolyar was successful in his open-wheel transition. Third in the SMP F4 NEZ, the Russian did better in Spain, finishing runner-up with eight wins, more than anyone else! Invited by Renault Sport Racing to take part in the Formula Renault Eurocup rookie tests, the SMP Racing protégé impressed. Signed by Tech 1 Racing, he showed great speed in his first season before joining reigning champions R-ace GP to be a contender for the championship in 2019.
