Early this year, Jehan became the first Indian ever to win a Grand Prix, after he dominated the New Zealand Grand Prix to take the chequered flag style, at the Circuit Chris Amon in Manfeild.

“He is already a race winner in the series and no doubt has the ability to add more wins and pole positions to his achievements over the course of 2018,” Carlin said.
