"My first two years in single seaters have been a fantastic learning experience," Daruvala said. "After finishing in the top five in the Formula Renault NEC in 2015 and 2016, and having finished 2nd in the Toyota Racing Series this year, I am confident of stepping up to the highly competitive FIA F3 European Championship.
"I really enjoy driving the Formula 3 car, as I feel that the high downforce seems to suit my driving style. I am happy with how testing has been so far and I am really looking forward to my first season of Formula Three."
"It has been great working with Carlin and they are one of the best in the business. I must also thank Sahara Force India for all their vital support"
