Jazeman Jaafar rounded out a triumphant return to British F3, winning race three of the series’ round at Brands Hatch.
Jaafar started the race from pole and never looked like relinquishing the lead, despite constant pressure from teammate Jordan King. The duo were way quicker than the rest of the field for the majority of the race, but the Brit dropped pace in the very end, almost falling prey to teammate Nicholas Latifi, who took his first podium in British F3.
Felipe Guimaraes spent most of his race fending off Jann Mardenborough for P4, finally finishing less than 0.4s ahead of the Brit. Sean Gelael and Tatiana Calderon rounded out the top seven.
Ed Jones was the National Class winner again, his main opponent Sun Zheng retiring after two laps.
Championship leader Will Buller crossed the line in 12th, a lap down, after he was involved in a collision with fellow title contender Antonio Giovinazzi early on. The Italian himself retired on the spot.
