In 2011, at the age of three, Rashid made his first visit to the Ferrari pit box during the Abu Dhabi Formula One Grand Prix. He was enthusiastically standing in front of the Ferrari box for hours, excited about the work going on, the sound of the engines and the pit stop practices. This passion has been noticed by the Ferrari team and they took Rashid inside their box. From that moment on Rashid knew what his future should be like.
Rashid’s first karting experience took place in January 2013. During the following summer he undertook an intensive training program in Italy, leading to his first race participation taking place on 4 October at the Al Ain Raceway, at the opening round of the 2013-14 UAE Rotax Max Challenge Series.
