South African, Naomi Schiff fast tracks to F1 Sky Sports Presenter

If you’re an F1 fan and you watched the first race of the season in Bahrain, you will no doubt have noticed there’s a new chick on the SKY presenters block with a distinct South African accent. Naomi Schiff is no stranger to the fast track. At the age of 11 she hopped into a go-kart for the first time and by 17 years old Naomi was representing South Africa at the Super Rok class in Italy.

She boasts a successful motorsport career beginning with Formula Vokswagen South African Championship in 2010, the Clio Cup China Series, KTM X-Bow GT4 and the W Series. It is safe to say this chick knows her stuff.

Now at 27, this sassy racing driver, presenter and stunt driver has joined the Sky Sports F1 team as well as co-hosting a new Sky Sports show on YouTube every monday after each race.

Her mother is Rwandan, her father Belgian, he incidentally was a Formula Ford champion back in his day. Naomi, who is now based in London lived in South Africa from the age of 4 and says she is after all proudly South African.

Naomi took to Instagram after the race weekend stating, “What a Jol!”

“Jol = proper fun.”
