Jehan Daruvala will start on the front row in the Austrian FIA Formula 2 Sprint Race.
On Saturday morning just before the Sprint, he caught up with insideF2’s Fraser Ford to reflect on yesterday’s Qualifying session and look forward to the race today:
“[Qualifying] was alright, I expected a bit more but yeah it was not too easy. I was out front by myself so I couldn’t get a slipstream. Still in the top 10 so there’s a lot to play for today [Saturday] … I didn’t have the pace for pole but I could have probably have been in the top five or six.”
Weather conditions in Austria have been unpredictable this weekend. Friday was completely dry with a small risk of rain whereas Saturday looks to rain all day, including during the Sprint Race.
“I don’t think it’s going to dry, to be honest. I’m okay with the wet so I think at the front there’s not going to be too much spray.”
Although he was disappointed with his Qualifying performance, it does mean he starts at the front of the grid for today, giving him the best possible chance to win the Sprint Race.
“I want to win so I’ll be pushing for that.”
