Alexander Smolyar is a respected figure in Russian racing circles. He turned out to be one of the few drivers who refused to change his citizenship for the sake of a comfortable performance in Formula. However, the organizers of one of the races did not tolerate this state of affairs, and they themselves replaced the flag of our athlete. The pilot was framed right at the award ceremony.

The Automobile Federation (FIA) has become one of the latest to clamp down on Russian athletes. The heads of the federation and the big teams did not want to allow the Russians to enter Formula 1 to the detriment of their image. At the same time, our drivers were allowed to compete in Formula 2 and below in a neutral state.

According to the results of the Formula 3 stage in Belgium, Alexander took third place and took part in the award ceremony. The driver, born in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, did not renounce Russian sports citizenship, therefore he acted under the abbreviation “Y”, that is, as “authorized neutral driver” (authorized neutral driver), for which the system recognized him . .. as a representative of Andorra.

Oddly enough, the organizers were not embarrassed by the Russian name and surname of the cyclist. Finally, the flag of a foreign country was unfurled on the podium next to Smolyar. Although, before Belgium, the Russians were always designated with a blank canvas. At this time, the audience was stumped, and Alexander tried to pretend that nothing was wrong.

it’s not the first time

Scandals involving Russian pilots are not happening for the first time. In the same season, some riders were completely banned from racing. He touched on punitive measures and the hero of the story.

On the eve of the British Grand Prix at Silverstone, neutral-flagged Russian cyclists were denied visas. Smolyar was forced to be replaced by a reserve pilot.

“Due to British visa issues, Alexander Smolyar will not be able to take part in the fourth stage of Silverstone. He will be replaced by Filip Ugran,” the MP Motorsport team said in a statement.

Smolyar played for the MP Motorsport team, which is based in the Netherlands. The leaders did not look at the pilot’s nationality and gave him the opportunity to prove himself. The Russian paid in full for his confidence: he won the Hungarian Grand Prix and brought three bronze medals, which allowed him to take tenth place in the individual competition.

The pilot did not participate in the current season of the tournament, because he refused to sign a declaration of resignation from his country. The document assumed that the driver acknowledges “full commitment to the FIA’s position regarding solidarity with Ukraine”, and will not be able to speak about Russia or Belarus, let alone express support for him.

The driver’s performance partly depended on the sponsorship of SMP Racing, but assistance for him stopped, and Alexander himself did not resist the decision.

“This year I will not participate in Formula 3 and other international racing series. I support SMP Racing’s decision to end its European program as a result of the unprecedented demands that the FIA ​​is placing on any Russian driver as a condition of access to international competitions,” he said.

The driver held out until the end and became the last of us in Formula. Shortly before this, the driver of the women’s category, Irina Sidorkova, also left international motorsport for political reasons.
