After two strong weekends at both Monza and Sochi at the end of Round 5 and Round 6 in September, which included a race win and two podium place finishes.
Carlin driver Jehan Daruvala hopes his training and simulator preparations in between Rounds 6 and 7 will pay off in Jeddah as the Red Bull Junior aims to keep up both good qualifying and race results into the final two race weekends of the Formula 2 season.
A track that requires you to not only be physically ready but mentally as well.
For all the drivers racing this weekend. The Jeddah Corniche Circuit will be brand new with the drivers only gaining experience of the track on the simulators during the nine-week break back at base.
“It’s always important to focus very hard but I think that with this being a really fast street circuit the precision and focus needs to be extremely high.”
And with the Jeddah circuit not only being an extremely fast track but a narrow track also. The focus will certainly be key as the 23-year-old eludes to above. It will be intriguing to see who still has focus after such a long period away from the track.
Daruvala ready to resume for the final two rounds.
“As usual, I’m super excited to get back in the car, it’s been a couple of months,” exclaims the Indian driver, as he focuses on making sure he is mentally in the right frame of mind heading into Jeddah and Abu Dhabi.
Daruvala will be aiming to finish ahead of fellow Red Bull Juniors and Hitech Grand Prix duo Jüri Vips and Liam Lawson. Who he is currently in the middle of in the Drivers’ Standings, come the end of the season.
Which Red Bull Junior will finish the final two rounds of the season on top? We await to see.
