SMP Racing driver Robert Shwartzman attended the presentation of the new car of the Italian Ferrari team, which will be present in Formula 1 in upcoming season.Robert is the first Russian member of the Ferrari Driver Academy that is why he was in the list of invited guests. Other members of the Ferrari Driver Academy, including Mick Schumacher have also attended the event.
“At first I was a little surprised to receive an invitation to this event, but I am very glad that, as a representative of the SMP Racing program and the Ferrari Driver Academy, I had a chance to see Scuderia Ferrari,” Robert Schwartzman shared. “In my opinion, the presentation was thought out to the smallest detail and looked like a beautiful performance. The culmination, of course, is the appearance of the car. I am surprised how interesting the design of the car turned out, how it looks like: this red matte color in combination with black inserts is very effective and stylish. After the official part, which everyone saw during the online broadcast, we went with other drivers to the hall, where, perhaps, five hundred fans of the team gathered. Mattia Binotto, Sebastian Vettel, Charles Leclerc, and then we, the drivers of the Ferrari Academy, were speaking about the car, Formula 1 and answered questions about us. I really liked this presentation, I think that such events should definitely be held in Russia. I hope that SMP Racing will organize something similar for the fans this year."
