Sacha Fenestraz, a Formula E driver, is set to hit the track for Nissan in the upcoming FE season. However, this Argentine-French driver isn’t just twiddling his thumbs in the meantime. He’s got his hands full with a Formula 1 team, he spills the beans.
At 24, Fenestraz ended up in the 16th spot in the Formula E championship in the 2022/2023 season. Not too shabby, right? But there’s more to his story.
Fenestraz has been moonlighting as a simulator driver for a Formula 1 team for the past six months. Mysterious, huh? He’s keeping mum about the team’s identity, though. “I can’t spill the beans on who I’m working with. But yeah, I’m doing simulator work for an F1 team and I’ve got my super license papers signed and sealed,” Fenestraz let slip during a chat with Argentine media outlet Corazon de F1.
So, will we see Fenestraz in an F1 car anytime soon? “Working in F1? It’s a dream come true for me. I haven’t gotten behind the wheel yet, but it might be in the cards,” the Argentine hinted. The decision on whether he’ll be in an official test or a rookie FP1 is up in the air.
Even though he’s got his sights set on the top tier of motorsport, Fenestraz isn’t about to abandon his FE roots. He’s sticking with his constructor in Formula E. Loyalty, eh?
“When there’s a clash between my F1 simulator dates and Nissan, Nissan takes the cake. I’ve always dreamed of competing in a world championship and that’s my top priority,” he clarified. The new Formula E season is just around the corner, kicking off in a month with the Grand Prix in Mexico.
So, stay tuned for more updates.
