Sacha Fenestraz, Kondo Racing
Defending All-Japan Formula 3 champion Fenestraz is going into his first season of Super Formula in the category with Kondo Racing, where Cassidy drove in 2017-18 before being promoted to Toyota’s traditional flagship team.
“I am aware that Nick is leaving and that next year there might be a free space at TOM’S, but it doesn’t stress me or put me under any pressure to get that seat,” Fenestraz told Motorsport.com when asked about the possibility of replacing Cassidy.
“This season hasn’t even started so it’s difficult to talk about next season. At the moment I’m happy at Kondo Racing, so let’s see how it goes.”
