India’s racing champ – Jehan Daruvala swept to a double podium finish in the Saudi Arabian round of the Formula 2 championship, over the weekend, in Jeddah. The 24-year-old, who races for Dutch team, MP Motorsport, had gone from fifth to third, after engaging in a hard-fought battle for the win in the Sprint Race on 18th March, 2023.
He followed that up with another drive to the final podium spot after a perfectly-executed, measured display in the next day’s longer feature event, making him the only driver to finish in the top-three in both races through the weekend! “This was a really strong weekend for us and some much-needed results after the disappointment of Bahrain. We were quick and consistent all throughout and we executed everything perfectly, which allowed us to capitalise on our potential. We can take a lot of confidence away from the Saudi round and I’m really looking forward to the upcoming races!” said Jehan.
The Formula 2 championship now heads to Australia for its March 31 – April 2 fixture, where the series will race around Melbourne’s Albert Park, for the first time.
