She was probably surprised herself: A Formula 1 supporter discovered a man she knows very well at the full Oktoberfest.
Munich - Millions of people visit the Oktoberfest in Munich every year, with 2023.3 million visitors counted by the halfway point of 4. Among them are numerous celebrities. But the chance to run into you? This is similar to the probability of finding a needle in a haystack. And what kind of happiness is it to discover a star from the profession you adore?
Formula 1 fan meets well-known Sky commentator Sascha Roos – and is puzzled
This has now apparently happened to TikTok user Carina. On her account "Chipsandchats" it is unmistakable that she is a big Formula 1 fan. Her videos show how she follows racing spectacles on her laptop – or directly on site at the track, as she recently did at Monza. Now a short clip has been added of how she meets one of her idols by chance at the Oktoberfest.
It is not a driver from the Formula 1 circus, but one of the most renowned German commentators on this sport: Sascha Roos. The 51-year-old, who comments on the races with changing Formula 1 legends on Sky, probably paid a private visit to the Oktoberfest. And since many know his voice above all, he is unlikely to be recognized by everyone in public. But from Formula 1 expert Carina!
Formula 1 fan with chance encounter at Oktoberfest: "Confused that I recognized him in passing"
"I was just enjoying a day without Formula 1 at the Oktoberfest when suddenly...", she writes in English. And the video switches to her selfie with Sascha Roos, which she dusted off. has. "I'm still confused that I even recognized him in passing among the thousands of people," she writes. But a true Formula 1 fan has eyes and ears for the stars of the industry.
"Awesome, I probably would have recognized him only by his voice," reads one of the comments. "Mega" in another. And several comment on a "Uiiii" and probably refer to the strikingly emotional commentary style of Sascha Roos. "What did he say when he saw you? 'Uiiiii'?" someone wants to know. As the photo shows, he was probably just nice to Carina. The visit to the Oktoberfest was much more turbulent for two top stars: they got drunk on rides, and one was allowed to pee in the caravan of the "Wild Mouse" boss. (lin)
