PETALING JAYA: It was another weekend to savour for the young Malaysian driver Nabil Jeffri as he secured his second podium finish of the season in the second round of the ATS Formel 3 Cup (German Formula 3) Series in Lausitzring.

The 20-year-old Motopark driver rose to the occasion in Race 3 on Sunday, finishing second in 30:48.275.

Pole-sitter Markus Pommer of Germany led from start to finish in 30:39.669 to win the race while Britain’s Sam Macleod was third in 30:51.440.

The second-place finish came as a huge relief for Nabil. He was forced to retire in Race 1 and struggled to an eighth-place finish in Race 2.

“The weekend did not work out well for me, but now I am very happy to be on the podium. Thanks to my team and my sponsors,” said Nabil.

“I could have done better, but we have to look forward now. I want to win the next round (the Red Bull Ring from June 6-8),” he added.

Nabil, who claimed a victory in last month’s opening round in Oschersleben, has 61 points to stay fourth in the overall standings of the eight-round championship. Pommer leads the field with 110 points followed by Macleod (83) and Dutchman Indy Dontje (79).
