Jazeman highly rated by Autosport magazine

AUTOSPORT’s British F3 reporter Marcus Simmons assesses the drivers who battled it out for a 2012 crown which went right down to the final round. Jazeman was rated No.2 in the list, just behind newly-crowned British F3 champion, Jack Harvey.


Here’s Marcus’s review of Jazeman’s season:

2. Jazeman Jaafar (MAL)
Championship position: 2nd (306 points)
Team and car: Carlin Dallara-Volkswagen
Starts: 28
Wins: 3
Poles: 1
Fastest laps: 3

This was the season when the Malaysian added consistency and application to the raw talent that was previously bubbling beneath the surface. When Harvey was on form, Jaafar was usually his closest challenger – and indeed was superior at Pau and Silverstone. In the reversed-grid races he was the man to watch on cold tyres, diving for gaps others hadn’t even dreamed about. That won him a few extra points, although arguably the same approach finally bit him in the final round at Donington when he clashed with Lynn.
