India’s top racer Jehan Daruvala created history in the Formula 3 Asian Championship, scoring a breakthrough victory for Mumbai Falcons, an all Indian-outfit, in Abu Dhabi on Thursday evening.

He started from pole and led every lap to comfortably win the first race in the second round of the continent’s premier championship. Daruvala had a good start from first, but Isack Hadjar managed to pull alongside Jehan before braking into the first corner. Jehan out-braked Hadjar and held his lead exiting the corner.
