Young Indian race driver Jehan Daruvala moves a step closer to realising his dream of becoming a Formula 1 competitor when he gets to test drive with former World Champions McLaren at the Silverstone circuit in England this week.

Jehan will drive McLaren’s MCL35M car at the Silverstone circuit on Tuesday and Wednesday, becoming only the third Indian after Naraine Karthikeyan and Karun Chandhok to drive a Formula 1 car.

“I am really excited at getting this opportunity to test an F1 car. It has been my dream to drive an F1 car and it is a big opportunity for me as very few people get such a chance. I am looking forward to doing my best in the test,” said Daruvala, who will continue to be a part of the Red Bull Junior Team which he joined in 2020
