. .

Carlins Jehan Daruvala finally stood on a Formula 2 podium after winning the 11th main race. A brilliant 3rd round of FIA Formula 2. The world championship in Bahrain took place. His teammate and Red Bull junior colleague Yuki Tsunoda also had a great comeback in 6th place. Place after he last started on the grid.

Daruvala got off to a great start at the 8. Starting place to some places and then got into a close fight for 5th place. Entangled place. Since he started with the softer medium compound tire, he has lost ground with hard compound tires, but still managed a long opening stint in the top 10.

With Bahrain being a tough track on the tires, Daruvala took the opportunity to pit early, hoping to have enough pace to stay ahead of the drivers waiting for their mandatory pit stop. It worked brilliantly when the Indian driver finished third with 12 laps to go. But the real fight was about to start when Daruvala had to hold back championship leader Mick Schumacher, who was on softer and fresher middle tires for the last stint.

An intense fight for 3rd place followed. Place with some brilliant defensive races by Daruvala against Schumacher. And finally on the penultimate lap it looked as if Schumacher’s tire advantage was gone. With that, Daruvala ran clear to the checkered flag and won a hard-fought maiden podium.

This result catapults the Indian driver to 12th place. Overall place in the drivers’ standings and now starts for tomorrow’s 124 km (23 laps) or 45-minute sprint race on 6th. Place, with Tsunoda on the 3. Place starts. This is due to the top 8 finishers of the feature race slot in reverse starting order.

Can Jehan Daruvala continue this strong dynamic and see more surprises this weekend? Everything will be announced as soon as the sprint race starts on Sunday at 3:30 p.m. (IST) and is broadcast live on the official F1 YouTube channel.
