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.
“It was a nerve-wracking session. I knew from testing and since I’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 that’s what made it more stressful,” said Maini.
Maini stands fourth in the drivers’ championship after round 1. The next race will be held in Saudi Arabia from March 17-19 as a support event to Formula 1.
