Speaking about joining MP Motorsport, Jehan Daruvala said, “I’m extremely excited to be racing for MP Motorsport. The team has progressed tremendously and impressed the entire F2 field with their performances last year. They showed consistent front-running pace, wrapped up both the drivers’ and team’s titles and go into the 2023 season as the team to beat. I am confident Dennis and I can build on that success and lead the team to more race wins, podiums and, hopefully, championship glory in 2023."

MP Motorsport team principal Sander Dorsman said, “At MP, we are delighted to welcome Jehan to our FIA F2 team. He has been a consistent frontrunner right from his debut in the category, taking wins in every F2 season he has competed in. His experience will be of great value to the team, so we are very much aiming for a repeat of last year’s form."

The Mumbai-based racer previously won four races in F2. He had his first run in the MP Motorsport machine during the post-season test in Abu Dhabi in November 2022. The driver went on to set the second-quickest time on the second day of the three-day test.

MP Motorsport is a Netherlands-headquartered F2 team and the only one to have won the title twice in the feeder series. The team has five race wins to its name with championship winner Felipe Drugovich, apart from multiple podiums.
