While it wasn’t the win he was looking for, Jazeman Jaafar scored another podium finish in the second round of the Cooper Tires British Formula 3 International Series at Oulton Park in the UK on Sunday, finishing in third place in the first race.

Despite finishing fourth in the second race and sixth in the final race of the day, he maintains his second placed position in the overall driver’s standings after the first two rounds of the 10-round series. The 18-year-old Malaysian driver began his 2011 British F3 campaign in Monza last week with two podiums and a fourth place finish.

“I’m pleased with another strong weekend of points finishes,” said Jazeman at the conclusion of the weekend. “Although Oulton Park is a great track to race on for a driver, there are very few overtaking opportunities, so I wasn’t able to make up much ground from my grid positions.”

“Taking away another podium and three top six finishes has kept me second in the drivers’ championship standings, so I’m pleased with how it is progressing, although it is very early days in the season,” he added.

The British F3 series continues with the third event of the season taking place at Snetterton race circuit in Norfolk on May 24-25.
