The young French driver joins Formula E this season.
Sacha Fenestraz goes to Formula E. It has been revealed this Wednesday that the 21-year-old driver from Annecy will join Jaguar Racing in the upcoming season in the role of the reserve driver. He replaces Tom Blomqvist, who has got a full-time seat at NIO 333. Fenestraz will also be in Diriyah this weekend with the team.
“I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Jaguar Racing in Marrakesh last year – to now be the reserve driver for this iconic brand and alongside one of the strongest driver line-ups in the world championship is a big moment for me. Formula E offers a challenge very different to anything I have raced in before and I can’t wait to support the team and return to the electric racing paddock”, Sacha Fenestraz said.
Jaguar’s team director James Barclay also shared his thoughts: “It is great to have Sacha joining us as reserve driver. He is a young, talented driver who has a great character and is really enthusiastic about this opportunity, he will be an important addition to the team. We were impressed with his approach and performance in the one-day rookie test in 2020. We are pleased to have him join the team.”
In 2020 Fenestraz drove in Super GT and Super Formula and got 5 podiums in 15 races. He also had some Formula E experience last year in Marrakesh during a rookie test session.
