Yuki Tsunoda has become the first driver announced as part of the new FIA Formula 3 International Series.

The 2018 Japanese Formula 4 Champion will join Jenzer Motorsport, and will have his first test with the team as part of the post-season testing at Yas Marina Circuit held from 29 November to 1 December.

Honda will support Tsundoa through its young driver programme, Honda Formula Dream Project which started in 2006.

“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 program. My target has always been to become a Formula 1 driver and joining this international championship is the first step on that road,” said Tsundoa.

“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 F3 championship one day is the ultimate goal. I would like to thank everyone who has helped me get this far, including my sponsors.”
