Daruvala defended his position in what was a competitive grid

Jehan had a defensive start after being cut off by a driver ahead. He had to defend his position during the first lap but managed to recover and soon moved up to P4 again. However, a competitive grid meant he could not move up easily and could only better his position by moving up to third. Nevertheless, that was enough for the driver and the team to score their maiden podium finish in their first-ever outing in the championship.

Meanwhile, Kush Maini had a forgettable race after being hit by a car on Lap 1 and had to pit to change a tyre. He rejoined at the back of the field and could not better his result. However, the driver did clock the second-fastest lap of the race and will be starting second tomorrow in Race 2 as a result.
