In the fifth season round of the Formula 3 Euro Series that was held at the 1.929-km Brands Hatch Indy circuit on Saturday (May 19), guest driver Jazeman Jaafar (Carlin) just beat rookie Sven Müller (Prema Powerteam). After 28 laps, the young driver from Malaysia had a margin of 0.392 seconds. Rookie driver Pascal Wehrlein (Mücke Motorsport) came home third. Daniel Juncadella (Prema Powerteam), who finished 12th after a poor start, remains in the lead of the Formula 3 Euro Series drivers’ standings.

At the start, Jaafar decided the duel against Felix Rosenqvist (Mücke Motorsport) in his favour. Both were side-by-side going into the first corner, but the Swede briefly came off the track and dropped back to fifth place. Müller took over second place from Pascal Wehrlein and Michael Lewis (Prema Powerteam). Müller kept the leaders within reach throughout the race, but he didn’t find the chance for a successful attack. Thus, Jaafar drove his maiden Formula 3 Euro Series victory home. Behind Rosenqvist in fifth place, Carlos Sainz Jr. (Carlin) successfully defended his sixth place throughout the race against a charging Raffaele Marciello (Prema Powerteam).

"Above all, I am racing in the Formula 3 Euro Series this weekend in order to gain experience, to learn and to get to know the Hankook tyres. Being able to win a race on top of that, of course, is particularly great."

The Formula 3 Euro Series tripleheader at Brands Hatch Circuit concludes on Sunday (May 20).

The top-three, along with how the North American racers did, will be posted following every session on the EFCN Facebook page, and EFCN Twitter page.
