Jehan Daruvala has climbed to the top of the 2021 F3 Asian Championship standings after a nearly flawless Round 2 that saw him finish on the podium in every single race.
He ended up winning two out of three races at Abu Dhabi’s Yas Marina Circuit, completing the last one in 2nd place.
As Daruvala gears up to undertake a second season in Formula 2 with Carlin, he’s spending the winter break competing in F3 Asia, racing for all-Indian outfit Mumbai Falcons.
“That’s what I said after last weekend. I needed to qualify better and be winning races. It’s only half the job done because we are here for another two days but it’s a very good start.”
“The car was good from the start here, we tried some things today, the race pace wasn’t fantastic in these last two races so we can still improve but I am confident that we have a good car and that I can challenge for podiums and wins again in these next races.”
“It’s a good track, overtaking is not easy but if you have the pace advantage it is not too difficult. The closer you are to the front, the harder it is. If you are in mid-pack then it is more achievable. You could see in the last race that Zhou dropped back to 13th I think and he finished 5th. In the first race, he was stuck behind me the whole way.”
“I think we can still work on some small things here and there. I need a bit more confidence on the brakes, I’m lacking a bit there, with the front locking,”
