This led former driver Chandhok to share his thoughts on the young Brazilian driver while expressing his disappointment that he's not currently on the grid.
Drugovich unlucky to miss out?
“Timing becomes so critical because you’re heavily reliant on people from the F1 paddock leaving basically,” said Chandhok on the Sky F1 Podcast.
“If you were looking at Drugovich or Lawson, they’re drivers who finished ahead of Sargeant for example in F2, so they probably do feel like they deserve an opportunity on the grid.
“Drugovich did a really good job in FP1 [in Abu Dhabi], he was there on the time sheets second quickest behind George Russell and did a good job in every other time we’ve seen him in an F1 car, he’s the F2 champion.
“So, I’m a little bit surprised and disappointed he hasn’t had an opportunity already in F1 and maybe there’s a conversation there.”
