This season’s FIA Formula 3 runner up Jack Doohan enters the Formula 2 Paddock for the first time this weekend.
Replacing Richard Verschoor at MP Motorsport for the final two rounds of the season in what will be an exciting experience for the Red Bull Junior.
Four Red Bull Juniors race in the final two rounds.
Debutant Doohan will also be joining fellow Red Bull Juniors Jüri Vips (6th), Liam Lawson (8th) and Jehan Daruvala (7th) in Saudi Arabia who will be in their own fight for the podium places as they look to finish the season strongly and ahead of one another in the Drivers’ Standings.
For Doohan though, who has only had half a day’s practice of the Jeddah Corniche Circuit on the simulator. His chance to drive the Formula 2 car is more about preparing himself for 2022 with “no real expectation in these races” states the Australian driver.
“I look forward to the two tracks, getting a feel for the car and having some fun.”
Doohan who helped Trident to Teams Standing’s glory in FIA Formula 3 this season, is seemingly more elated at the fact that he is “super happy to get this drive for the last two rounds,” as he looks forward to the high speeds that the Jeddah street circuit has to offer.
No expectations but still a chance for Doohan to impress.
And whilst Doohan’s call up to the Formula 2 grid is quite last minute with the announcement only being made public on Monday.
Driving in the last two rounds of the season at both Jeddah and Abu Dhabi gives Doohan the chance to make an impression on the Formula 2 grid and senior figures above in the F1 Paddock.
Ahead of fellow Red Bull Junior and 2021 FIA Formula 3 Champion Dennis Hauger who is yet to make his Formula 2 debut.
We welcome Jack to the Formula 2 grid and look forward to seeing how he performs over these final two rounds of the season.
