Malaysia's Formula 3.5 Series racer Jazeman Jaafar preparing to go out on track at the Moscow Raceway last month.
PETALING JAYA: Jazeman Jaafar hope to prove more than a point in the sixth round of the Formula Renault 3.5 Series this weekend at the Nurburgring circuit in Germany.
The 21-year-old, who watched the British Formula 1 Grand Prix last weekend with the Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 crew at Silverstone, said he is eager to get behind the wheels for the race after collecting 10 points at the fifth round in Moscow on June 29.
“Watching the British Grand Prix and being in the garage with the team was great, but there’s nothing like being a driver than a spectator,” he said.
“This weekend will all be about points. I want to be back on the podium after being there twice this season and for that I’ll be working hard with the crew to develop the right set-up for qualifying and the races.”
Jazeman stepped on the podium after he finished third on two successive occasions, at Monaco and Spa-Francorchamps (Belgium) in May.
The ISR Racing driver is currently in seventh spot in the overall standings after nine races with 56 points. The son of former Spanish rally driver, Carlos Sainz Jr, is leading the championship on 132 points.
