It was a forgettable outing for Jehan Daruvala, who is into his fourth season.

He did well to finish sixth in the sprint race before struggling to 17th in the feature race.

โ€œIt was a nerve-wracking session. I knew from testing and since Iโ€™ve driven this car that it suits my driving style, and I know that the Campos cars are really good. I knew that if we put everything together, we could be in the mix and thatโ€™s what made it more stressful,โ€ said Maini.

Maini stands fourth in the driversโ€™ championship after round 1. The next race will be held in Saudi Arabia from March 17-19 as a support event to Formula 1.
