Formula 2, or the 'Battle of the Junior Drivers' as we call it will have an Indian racer line-up on the grid for the first-time ever. Arjun Maini, who has been backed by two Formula 1 teams before even stepping into a Formula 1 car, will be starting his Motorsport career's biggest challenge (yet!) this weekend in Bahrain.
Maini is currently Haas F1 Team's development driver and in this week's episode of the Inside Line F1 Podcast, Mithila and Kunal wonder if Maini would be itching to get into the Haas F1 car given its 2018 form. Apart from his Formula 1 ambitions, we focus on the present - his preparations, targets and expectations from his maiden Formula 2 season. There's 'Team Arjun' that is working silently behind the scenes to propel Maini into Formula 1 and we are definitely signing up for the ride. Are you?
