Jehan Daruvala (born 1 October 1998) is an Indian racing driver, currently competing in the European Formula 3 Championship with Prema Powerteam. He is a protégé of the Force India F1 team, after being one of three winners of a 'One in a Billion hunt' organized by the team in 2011.[1]

Early life[edit]

Daruvala was born in Mumbai to Khurshed and Kainaz Daruvala, a Parsi family. He studied at Bombay Scottish School, Mahim.[2] His father Khurshed is the current MD of Sterling & Wilson, an associate company of Shapoorji Pallonji[3]

Career[edit]

Karting[edit]

Daruvala started karting at the age of thirteen in 2011, winning titles as champion and vice champion across Asia and Europe.[citation needed] He was coached by Rayomand Banajee who recognised his talent early on and was instrumental in laying the foundations for his future success. [4]

Formula Renault 2.0[edit]

In 2015, Daruvala stepped up to single-seaters with Fortec Motorsport in the Formula Renault 2.0 championships. He claimed fifth place in the Northern European Cup and partook as a guest driver in the Eurocup and Alps series.

The following year, Daruvala switched to reigning series champions Josef Kaufmann Racing and took his first pole position and win in the Northern European Cup to finish fourth overall. In Eurocup, he finished ninth.

European Formula 3[edit]

In November 2016, Daruvala stated his intention to switch to the European Formula 3 Championship for the 2017 season.[5] He signed to race with Carlin the following month.[6]
