Doohan impresses in Formula 2 testing
Friday 17th December, 2021 - 4:11pm
Jack Doohan has flashed plenty of speed in the opening day of Formula 2 post-season testing.
The Australian was third quickest in the 22-car field at Yas Marina, where compatriots Daniel Ricciardo and Oscar Piastri had been in action earlier this week for Formula 1 testing.
Doohan was third and the leading rookie in both the morning and afternoon sessions, clocking 85 laps all up with a best time of 1:35.851s.
That put him four tenths shy of pace-setter Jehan Daruvala of Prema Racing, with MP Motorsport’s Felipe Drugovich second having topped the morning session.
Fellow Australian Calan Williams was a more than respectable sixth on the afternoon timesheets for Trident.
Doohan’s running came with UNI-Virtuosi, for whom he’s been confirmed to contest the 2022 F2 season with.
The 18-year-old recently made his F2 debut with MP Motorsport, competing in the final two rounds of this season, scoring points on two occasions.
That came after he secured runner-up in the 2021 FIA Formula 3 Championship.
Testing will resume local time on Friday.
