Jaafar retained by Carlin for 2011 season
7 February 2011 – It has been confirmed that Jazeman Jaafar will be remaining in British Formula 3 this season, with the Petronas-backed Malaysian having signed a fresh deal with multiple Champions Carlin. In 2010, the 18-year-old enjoyed two podium finishes and a second place finish in his tenth race, at Hockenheim.
“My first season of British F3 was a huge learning curve,” he commented. “I moved up from Formula BMW to the much more powerful and more technical F3 machinery and had a lot to learn.
“Entering 2011 I feel much more comfortable, not only having already competed at this level for a season, but also by staying with Carlin who nurtured me through my rookie year - I have a stability, which is very important.
“My goal is always to win races and from the outset that will be my focus this season. The grid shaping up for this year looks highly competitive and I don’t underestimate how tough it will be, but I have the commitment, passion and determination to succeed.”
