Jehan Daruvala currently competes in the F2 Championship where he drives for the junior Red Bull team, aka Prema Racing. With 83 points in 6 races, Daruvala stands in the third sport in the championships.

The Indian racer was hailed as a protege in Force India and has been performing well in the F2 Championships. Desperate for a chance in F1, fortunes might favor him in the coming years. McLaren has a bit of a rough patch with Daniel Ricciardo after the Aussie driver struggled in F1 2022 season and will surely keep an eye open to provide the Indian driver a chance at the big stage.
