A GP3 racer at present, Fontana's career started at a young age in karting, with the Swiss driver progressing through the ranks steadily as he got older. Still a youngster, Fontana claimed the Formula 3 Euro Cup in 2011, before moving into GP3. A Formula Two race winner in 2012, Fontana was signed up to the Lotus Young Driver Programme, getting full support in GP3, and a few drives in Formula Renault 3.5.
Formula E HistoryEdit
Fontana's first involvement in Formula E came when the Trulli Formula E Team called him into the team in place of Vitantonio Liuzzi for the London double header. His first taste of the Spark-Renault SRT_01E came in practice for the 2015 London ePrix I, with the race itself ending with a disappointing retirement. He improved in the Sunday race (the Second London ePrix), taking fourteenth having started in ninth.
Fontana's service were not then called upon for season two, leaving the Swiss racer to resume his single seater career elsewhere.
