DRIVERS: NORBERTO FONTANA

Name: Norberto Fontana
Nationality: Argentina
Date of birth: January 20, 1975

Impressive winner of the 1995 German Formula 3 Championship - a contest in which he beat Ralf Schumacher, Jarno Trulli and Alexander Wurz - Fontana seems to have lost his career momentum. After a spell as Sauber Formula 1 test driver he raced in the Japanese Formula Nippon category and had four races for the Swiss team, deputizing for the injured Gianni Morbidelli, which led him precisely nowhere. In 1999 he attempted to revive his career with a full program of European Formula 3000 races without success and then headed off to America to race in CART.
