Jehan Daruvala testing the McLaren MCL35M at Silverstone
“My first taste of Formula One machinery was surreal and I can’t wait to get back in the car again in Portimao” Jehan said, while talking about the upcoming test. “I came away from the Silverstone test with a lot of confidence as both from a driving and physical perspective I did well and covered more than two race distances absolutely trouble-free”. “I am thankful to both Red Bull and McLaren for giving me this opportunity and continuing to support my development”, he added.
The Mumbai Falcons, who are supporting Jehan’s Formula 2 title bid, said, “The second McLaren test marks yet another milestone in Jehan’s journey to Formula One”. “Our mission is to showcase the best of Indian motorsport talent to the world and we are proud to support Jehan as he pursues his dream of becoming only the third Indian to race in F1.”
Jehan Daruvala drove 130 laps of the Silverstone Circuit in the F1 car, more than twice the distance of the British Grand Prix over a span of 2 days. Having acquired enough superlicense points while racing in the feeder series and having driven the minimum required mileage in a Formula 1 car in the first test, Daruvala is now eligible for a Formula 1 superlicense. Daruvala is currently a part of Red Bull Junior team and is racing in Formula 2 for Prema Racing. The Indian ace is currently fourth in the championship, as he received a 20-second time penalty for a start procedure infringement in the last Formula 2 race, dropping him from a race winning position to P12.
