In 2015, Fenestraz graduated to single-seaters. He partook in the French F4 Championship, where he claimed three victories and eleven junior victories. As a result, he finished as Junior F4 champion and vice-champion in the overall standings.

In 2016, Fenestraz switched to Formula Renault 2.0 with Tech 1 Racing. He claimed his first pole position at the Monaco round, following the exclusion of former pole sitter Lando Norris,[3] and subsequently took his first victory in the race. He followed that up with a second pole and victory at the final race at Estoril to finish fifth in the overall standings. He also claimed a victory and finished fifth in the Northern European Cup.

After testing with them in the post-season test at Estoril, Fenestraz signed with team champions Josef Kaufmann Racing for 2017.[4] Fenestraz won the championship with a race to spare.[1] He won seven races and had finished another eleven races on the podium position. After he became a champion he was included into the Renault Sport Academy.[5]
