The 2018 Japanese F4 Champion Yuki Tsunoda joins Jenzer Motorsport to race in the 2019 FIA F3 Championship. The Japanese ace first worked with his new team at the 2018 GP3 Series post-season tests at the Yas Marina Circuit.

Honda will support the driver through its young driver programme, “Honda Formula Dream Project” which was started in 2006, with the aim of discovering and developing talented racing drivers.

Yuki Tsunoda said: “I am very pleased that I will be competing next year in the FIA Formula 3 Championship, thanks to support from the Honda young driver programme. My target has always been to become a Formula 1 driver and joining this international championship is the first step on that road. I will be racing in a totally new environment, but that is something I am looking forward to very much.

“I will be trying my best with the aim of winning races and getting points towards an F1 Super License. Winning the F1 championship one day is the ultimate goal. I would like to thank everyone who has helped me get this far, including my sponsors.”
