Interview

The other Doohan charting his way to motorsport success

Heading into FIA Formula 2 this season, there was a lot of pressure on Jack Doohan. The 2021 F3 runner-up joined a new team for his next challenge, as well as signing up to the Alpine Academy. He told Autosport how he’s tackling the step up - with some help from his motorcycle legend father

As one of 10 rookies joining the F2 grid in 2022, Jack Doohan has been one of the most talked about. Finishing 2021 as F3 runner-up to Dennis Hauger, who has also made the step up to F2 this season, Doohan took four wins and seven podiums on his title charge last year, finishing with 179 points – just 26 shy of the champion.

It was an impressive season from the young Australian, and even more so considering he failed to score a point the previous year, making his debut with HWA Racelab and finishing 26th in the standings with 0 points. But his move to Trident proved fruitful, and with a solid season behind him, he joined 2021 F2 runners-up Virtuosi Racing for his F2 campaign – the team which fielded Zhou Guanyu in the series last year, finishing third before moving up to Formula 1 with Alfa Romeo.
