On 2nd July, the 18-year-old scored a brilliant win at the race 3 of Norisring round of championship. With this he closed the gap in the rookie championship down. The Mumbai boy is now just 20 points behind teammate Lando Norris. Born out of Force India’s One From a Billion hunt talent hunt, Daruvala has made progress year-on-year and poses a real chance of making it to Formula One in 2-3 years time. Let’s hope the boy from Dadar Parsi Colony continues the momentum and Indian fans get to realize their dream of watching an Indian driver in an Indian Formula One car.
