In mid-February collective tests for Formula 2 and Formula 3 took place at the Sakhir circuit in Bahrain. MP Motorsport achieved good results with the drivers chosen for the season. In Formula 2 Jehan Daruvala and Dennis Hauger. Daruvala, the 24-year-old from Mumbai, joins last year’s title-winning outfit with the aim of continuing the Dutch team’s current run of success. 2021 FIA Formula 3 champion Dennis Hauger is a 19-year-old Norwegian has high hopes of being among the category’s frontrunners in 2023, as he joins forces with the team that has produced the last season’s champion.
In Formula 3, the MP Motorsport standard-bearers will be Jonny Edgar, a British driver, Franco Colapinto, from Argentina and Mari Boya, a Spaniard.
This weekend the championships also start on the Bahrain circuit, where the teams will battle to face the 2023 season made up of 10 GPs in Formula 3 and 14 GPs in Formula 2.
We sat down with MP Team Principal Sander Dorsman for some early-season commentary:
“We are looking forward to the 2023 FIA Formula 2 and Formula 3 championships. Of course, we are now in a different position compared to the previous years in F2 winning the Driver’s and Team’s Championship in 2022. We are aiming to fight for race wins and pole positions again this season, with Dennis Hauger and Jehan Daruvala who are both F2 race winners. We are just as excited for the F3 season, where we have a strong line-up with Jonny Edgar, Mari Boya, and Franco Colapinto, who has recently been announced with the Williams Racing Driver Academy. Thanks to the support of Draco Marketing and their partners, we are looking forward to another successful F2 and F3 campaign.”
