Indian motor-racer Jehan Daruvala has been roped in by MP Motorsport for the upcoming Formula 2 season. With the signing of Daruvala, the Formula 2 grid for the 2023 season is complete. Daruvala will be joining the defending Drivers’ and Teams’ Champions and partner Dennis Hauger. 

Daruvala made his Formula Renault 2.0 debut in 2015 with Fortec Motorsport and took home his first race win in 2016 with Josef Kaufmann Racing. He competed in the Formula 3 championship, the Toyota Racing Series and the Macau Grand Prix before making his Formula 2 debut in 2020 with Carlin. After two seasons with Carlin, Daruvala competed with Prema Racing during the 2022 F2 season, where he finished seventh in the championship with a win and eight podiums.

Along with joining MP Motorsport, Daruvala has also been signed as the Official Reserve Driver for Mahindra Racing in Formula E.

Daruvala commented:

I’m really pleased to be back in FIA Formula 2, and to be able to team up with MP Motorsport makes it extra special. Last year, I was stunned by MP’s remarkably consistent front-running pace, and in 2023 I hope to be the beneficiary of that myself! Together with Dennis, I’m confident that our combined experience and speed will contribute to MP fighting for wins once again. I really enjoyed working with the team in the post-season test and look forward to 2023 testing and the season that lies ahead.

Sander Dorsman, Team Principal, MP Motorsport, said:

At MP, we are delighted to welcome Jehan to our FIA F2 team. He has been a consistent frontrunner right from his debut in the category, taking wins in every F2 season he has competed in. His experience will be of great value to the team, so we are very much aiming for a repeat of last year’s form. Also, matching him up with Dennis will allow us to build on a smooth cooperation between teammates who already know each other well. With such a strong driver pairing for 2023, I can’t wait to go racing!
