Indian driver Jehan Daruvala is competing in the 2021 Formula 2 for the Carlin team and currently sits in fourth place in the driver standings after a strong start to the season. Yuki Tsunoda and Mick Schumacher are some of the championship’s notable alumni who recently graduated to F1.
Formula 2 in 2021 is using a new format this year seeing three races in each round instead of the two from previous seasons. In Race 1, Daruvala kept himself out of trouble at the start and then made his way up the order.

In Race 2, Daruvala settled for fourth. Click the link above for the full race report.
