2018: 11th (5th rookie) in the FIA European Formula 3 Championship
Team: Carlin





Season review:



Sacha entered the FIA European Formula 3 Championship as the 2017 Formula Renault Eurocup champion, trying his hand in bigger, faster and increased downforce machinery.




It was a story of an impressive opening and an excellent ending for Sacha. A win at the first round in Pau meant he raced into the early championship lead, but from there things grew tough. A triple top ten finish in Hungary meant he remained in the top four of the championship, before struggling across the next three rounds at the Norisring, Zandvoort and Spa.



Silverstone gave Sacha some respite, as he stormed to pole position in race one, before sealing a brace of second place finishes at the British circuit.




Sacha was unable to build on that promising performance across Misano, Nürburgring, Red Bull Ring and Hockenheim and finished the year in eleventh. In between the Formula 3 races, Sacha competed in Sochi and Abu Dhabi in GP3. The French-Argentine also enjoyed a superb outing at the FIA Formula 3 World Cup in Macau in November, finishing third in the main race.

Sacha Fenestraz:



“It has been a tough season racing in a very competitive category. It’s probably been the hardest of my career so far. There are always high and low points in a career and this one was definitely a challenging one. The season started really well in Pau with a victory, but it got harder and harder from there and the other good result for me was at Silverstone with two second places.






“An important thing was that I learnt a lot throughout the season. I’ve never learnt so much in one year so that was good. Tough years are usually when you learn the most, so I’m looking at the positives and wanting to build on those. The Macau result does make up for it slightly. I was really pleased with that, especially with so many experienced drivers on the grid.”
