India's Jehan Daruvala will race MP Motorsport’s third GP3 car in the last round of the GP3 series, in Abu Dhabi this weekend.

Daruvala, who hails from Mumbai, last year became the first Indian to win a race in the highly competitive FIA F3 European Championship in 2017 and completed the 2018 season with a win, a pole, and five podiums in total finishing 10th in the championship.

“After my 2017 test, it will be good to gain some more GP3 experience ahead of the 2019 season. I am thankful to MP for giving me this opportunity”, Daruvala said.

“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”, added MP’s team manager Sander Dorsman.
