Jehan Daruvala will race for MP Motorsport in the GP3 Series‘ swan song this weekend at the Yas Marina Circuit.

The Indian, comes straight from taking part in the Macau Grand Prix last weekend in the FIA F3 World Cup.

Daruvala joins the Dutch team on the back of a season in FIA European Formula 3 in which he claimed one win, one pole position and five podiums.

For the finale, he joins Richard Verschoor and Devlin DeFrancesco.

Daruvala is familiar with MP Motorsport and the Yas Marina Circuit, having taken part in the GP3 post-season test with them there last year.

“After my 2017 test, it will be good to gain some more GP3 experience ahead of the 2019 season,” said Daruvala.  “And I’m happy that MP has given me the opportunity to do so. It’s a busy November month for me, adding Abu Dhabi straight after Macau, but that’s only good!”

“I’m pleased to welcome Jehan to our GP3 team for the final weekend in the series’ nine-year history before we move on to the all-new FIA F3 in 2019”, said MP’s team manager Sander Dorsman. “I’m sure Jehan will gel well with Richard and Devlin, and will help us wave goodbye to GP3 by going out on a high.”
