Karting

Prior to his racing career, Fontana enjoyed a very successful period in the junior Karting ranks, the highlights of his career coming in 2007 when he won the Swiss KF3 championship and the following year when he became champion in the Bridgestone Cup Switzerland KF2 class.

Formula Azzurra

In 2009, Fontana graduated to single–seaters, racing in the Italian–based Formula Azzurra series for MG Motorsport. He took three podium places, including two race victories, to finish the year in seventh position, with team–mate Alberto Cerqui winning the title.

Formula Three

2010 saw Fontana step up to the Italian Formula Three Championship with the Corbetta Competizioni team. He failed to score a championship point in the sixteen races he contested, with a best race result of 12th coming in the second event at Hockenheim.

The following year saw Fontana remain with the team, but switching series to race in the European F3 Open Championship, alongside Italian Matteo Torta. He secured the title at the final round of the season in Barcelona, finishing five points clear of RP Motorsport's David Fumanelli courtesy of race wins at Spa–Francorchamps and Monza and a further five podium finishes.

GP3 Series

In August 2011, Fontana made his debut in the Formula One–supporting GP3 Series, replacing Vittorio Ghirelli at Jenzer Motorsport for the penultimate round of the season at Spa–Francorchamps. After finishing 14th in the first race, he took the final championship point in race two by finishing in sixth place. He was unable to take part in the final round of the year at Monza due to a prior Formula Three testing commitment and was replaced by countryman Christophe Hurni.

Formula Two

After completing a successful test session at Barcelona in December 2011, Fontana will graduate to the FIA Formula Two Championship in 2012.
