Jazeman poses with the his trophy after finishing third in the third round of the Formula Renault 3.5 series in Monaco on Sunday.
PETALING JAYA: Malaysian Jazeman Jaafar put up an impressive display to clinch his first podium finish of the season in the third round of the Formula Renault 3.5 Series in Monaco.
The 21-year-old ISR Racing driver completed the 30-lap race – which served as the support race for the Monaco Formula One Grand Prix on Sunday – in third spot behind winner Norman Nato of France and Denmark’s Marco Sorensen.
“It’s been a great Monaco and I’m very happy to have achieved my first podium of the season,” said Jazeman, who also finished third in Monaco for his only podium finish in his debut season in the series last year.
“It was particularly special to see the Malaysian flag flying during the podium celebration,” added Jazeman.
The podium finish was a much-needed boost for Jazeman. His previous best showing was seventh in the season-opener at Monza last month.
Jazeman is now placed 12th in the drivers’ championship with 23 points.
Carlos Sainz Jr of Spain is the leader with 74 points followed by Britain’s Oliver Rowland (59) and Frenchman Pierre Gasly (51).
Jazeman’s season continues with two races at Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium this weekend (May 31-June 1).
