Meet Robin Smit | F1 expert

Tell a bit about yourself!
Hey! My name is Robin Smit and I am nineteen years old. I’m currently living in Amersfoort but I was born in Hilversum on the 31th of January in 1998. I am living in Amersfoort at the moment. Eventually I want to be a sports journalist so I started studying Journalism and Communication at the MBO Utrecht.

How did you got into cars?
I got into cars because I started following the Formula 1 back in 2011. Since then, I watched all the free practices, the qualifications and obviously the race itself. I just can’t get enough of the insane high speed they’re reaching and of all the new liveries every season. My first own Formula 1 experience was at Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium in 2015. My favorite drivers are Sebastian Vettel and the flying Dutchmen Max Verstappen.

Why do you like Ferrari so much?
Like I said before, I got into cars because of the Formula 1 and I think you can’t think of Formula 1 without thinking of Ferrari. So when my favorite driver Sebastian Vettel started driving for Scuderia Ferrari I was insanely happy! Talking about passion for what they are doing, Ferrari is on another level, especially in the F1.

Why did you join FerrariPhotoPage?
Just three weeks before the 2017 F1 season started Max came up to me and asked if I wanted to cover every F1 race of this season from Ferrari’s point of view. This would give me the opportunity to get better in writing English and writing articles in general. So, I obviously said yes!
