Jehan Daruvala (born 1 October 1998 in Mumbai, India) is an Indian racing driver who competes with Carlin in the 2020 FIA Formula 2 Championship. A member of the Red Bull Junior Team, Daruvala arrived in F2 after finishing third in the FIA Formula 3 Championship in 2019.
Daruvala began karting at the fairly late age of thirteen in 2011, but would quickly emerge as a front runner in the categories he raced in. In 2015 the Indian racer would fully commit to racing in Europe, taking part in the Formula Renault 2.0 NEC, Alps and Eurocup Championships. His maiden season saw him focus primarily on the NEC, finishing fifth with 194.5 points.
Daruvala would open his 2016 campaign with a run to second in the Toyota Racing Series, before taking on the same FR 2.0 programmes that he had in 2015. Finishing fourth in the NEC, Daruvala move into the FIA Formula 3 European Championship for 2017, although he again ran in the TRS, claiming fifth. Sixth at the end of the 2017 F3 Europe Championship earned Daruvala another season in the Championship for 2018.
2018 saw Daruvala secure a second F3 win en-route to tenth in the Championship, while also getting a chance to run in the GP3 Series at the season finale. The Indian racer duly signed up for the GP3 Series in 2019 as it transformed in the FIA Formula 3 Championship, and would go on to finish third in the inaugural F3 Championship. That earned him the attention of the Red Bull, who signed the Indian racer up to the Red Bull Junior Team in February 2020.
Formula Two History
Daruvala was signed by Carlin ahead of the 2020 FIA Formula 2 Championship, with the Indian racer partnered by fellow Red Bull Junior Team member Yuki Tsunoda. He duly impressed at the 2020 Bahrain Test by setting the fastest lap on the second day of the test, although he and Tsunoda would be equally matched throughout.
