Yuki Tsunoda (角田 裕毅 in Japanese; born 11 May 2000 in Kanagawa, Japan) is a Japanese racing driver who competes in the 2020 FIA Formula 2 Championship with Carlin.[1] A member of both the Honda Formula Dream Project and the Red Bull Junior Team, Tsunoda graduated to F2 after a season in the FIA Formula 3 Championship.[2][3]

Background

Tsunoda began his career in karting in his native Japan, joining the JAF Junior Karting Championship in 2010.[4] Progressing through the various classes each year, Tsuonda graduated to single-seaters in 2016, obtaining a late-season entry in the F4 Japanese Championship.[4] After obtaining a debut podium, Tsuonda was handed a full season seat in F4 Japan for 2017.[4]

Honda Heroics

Joining the Honda Formula Dream Project in 2017, Tsunoda had an impressive maiden campaign in F4 Japan, securing third in the Championship while also winning the East category.[2][4] Honda duly kept him in Japanese F4 for 2018, and were rewarded as their young protege scored seven wins and the Championship title.[4] That prompted Honda's new Formula One partners Red Bull to sign Tsuonda at the end of the season, with the Japanese youth moving to Europe as a member of the Red Bull Junior Team.[3][4]

For 2019 Tsunoda would complete a dual programme in the FIA Formula 3 Championship and the Euroformula Open Championship alongside other RBJT members.[4] The Japanese racer duly finished fourth in the latter series with a single win, while also securing ninth in F3, while also driving to eleventh in the famed Macau Grand Prix at the end of the season.[4] 2020 would see Tsunoda get a run in the Toyota Racing Series, claiming a single win en-route to fourth in the Series.[4]

Formula Two History

Tsunoda secured his debut in the FIA Formula 2 Championship with Carlin, with the Japanese racer signing a deal with the British squad for the 2020 season.[1] It was a move orchestrated by both Honda and Red Bull, which saw Tsunoda partnered by fellow RBJT member Jehan Daruvala, with Tsunoda and Daruvala evenly matched at the 2020 Bahrain Test.[5]
