Being born in the 2000s, I don't have as much experience in life or cars as some of my colleagues, but I'm getting there.

My passion for cars, especially Formula One, started at a very young age. I remember being two or three years old when I went into my sister’s room and heard one of the most incredible sounds I’ve ever heard to this day, as a screaming V10 F1 engine dragged me to the TV screen. From that moment on, I watched F1 races instead of cartoons and I was almost in tears every time Fernando Alonso overtook Schumacher's Ferrari. I then knew my life had to revolve around Formula One cars as time passed.

When I turned four, I received a big diecast model of a Ferrari F50, which made me fall in love with cars in general. The F50 is still my favorite car, alongside the Lamborghini Countach. What can I say, they don't make them like they used to.

As for now, I am studying automotive engineering at the Politehnica University of Bucharest. Thanks to my passion for cars, physics, and mathematics, I managed to get in at the top of my class and with some of the best grades.

When I am not writing for autoevolution, I play basketball, read, travel, and do what all students do—partying too much and spending money in dumb ways.
