For 2018 Arjun will be competing in the FIA Formula 2 championship. The Formula 2 championship is a support series to Formula One, where the races are run on the same weekend as Formula One weekends and features some of the best racing talent in the world. The series consists of 12 race weekends with 2 races each weekend and they take place in all the major racetracks around the world today, including Silverstone in the U.K., Monza in Italy and the prestigious Monaco Grand Prix. Further there is significant television coverage with the series being broadcasted in over 140 countries with several large networks covering the series. Further race highlights will also be telecasted in India for 2018!
Given the fact that Arjun topped 2 out of the 6 sessions (he was also the only rookie to top a test session) during the official post-season test which itself impressed a lot of teams, there is every reason to believe that 2018 will be a breakthrough year for Arjun.
