After ending the 2020 FIA Formula 2 season with victory in the final race, Jehan Daruvala will again race in F2 with Carlin.
Daruvala claimed a win in the final round of the 2020 season to top off what had been a progressive first year in FIA Formula 2 for the Indian driver.
“I’m extremely excited to be staying in F2 and with Carlin for 2021,” said Daruvala.
“We made a lot of progress last year and overcame some issues to put together a really strong package. It was great to end the season on such a high with my first F2 win and then to back that up with front running pace in post-season testing. We have a lot of momentum behind us and although we know that other drivers and teams will have made steps forward over the winter, we will be aiming for the top step in every race. Consistency will be the key to a successful championship campaign so we need to be on the pace from the start.
“I’m extremely proud to be carrying Red Bull colours again this season and I thank Dr Marko and my sponsors for their continued support and belief in me which I will be looking to repay from the very first race.”
The British based team will be pleased to try and continue his form into the new season. Speaking about Daruvala, Team Principal Trevor Carlin stated;
“We’re extremely pleased that we have the opportunity to carry on the great progress we have been making with Jehan and have another attack on the FIA F2 Championship. Thank you to Red Bull and Jehan’s sponsors for entrusting us with this important year in his career. Jehan did a great job last season as an F2 rookie, he kept his head and kept pushing through to really show his true potential by the second half of the season. To finish the year off with a third place and then a win really confirms what we knew from the start. I expect Jehan to continue where he left off – challenging for wins from the outset in the new season.”
