Early lifeEdit

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]

CareerEdit

KartingEdit

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 2.0Edit

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 3Edit

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] He won one race at the Norisring and finished sixth in the championship, outscoring every one of his teammates apart from champion Lando Norris.

FIA Formula 3Edit

In 2019, Daruvala competed in the inaugural Formula 3 season for the Prema Powerteam. He won two races: the sprint race at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya and the feature race in France. He scored seven podiums and was in second position throughout most of the season, but eventually finished third in the championship, only one point behind his teammate Marcus Armstrong.

FIA Formula 2Edit

In February 2020, Daruvala reunited with Carlin to contest the 2020 season[7] alongside Red Bull Junior Team member Yuki Tsunoda and was also named as a new recruit to the Red Bull Junior Team.[8]
