India’s Jehan Daruvala sets second-fastest overall time at Formula 2 pre-season test in Bahrain

MUMBAI: Indian driver Jehan Daruvala has set the second-fastest overall time at the Formula 2 pre-season test session in Bahrain.
Driving for reigning champions Prema this year, the 23-year-old’s best time over the three days was one minute 42.074 seconds, which put him at the top of the time sheets on the opening day of running.
It also stood as the second quickest time of the whole test session, behind only Liam Lawson’s Day 2 pace-setting time of one minute 41.623 seconds, a release said.
The third and final day of the test had to be abandoned after limited running due to a sandstorm.
The Bahrain test was held from March 2 to 4.
Jehan, who is also part of the Red Bull Junior Team, consistently ran among the front-runners throughout the test, further boosting his prospects of becoming the first Indian to win the Formula 2 championship.
He also ran trouble-free during the three days, chalking up a total of 153 laps around the Sakhir International Circuit.
“We experienced three very productive days of testing.
Our pace on both long runs and qualifying simulations has been encouraging while reliability has also been strong allowing us to chalk up plenty of mileage,” Jehan said.
