Jamie Chadwick claims first podium in F3 Asian Championship

Jamie Chadwick has secured her first podium in the F3 Asian Championship as she finished third in the first race of the event at the Sepang International Circuit.

Chadwick previously had a best finish of P6 but in Malaysia she improved on her previous best which came in Dubai. The Brit finished third behind Joey Alders of the Netherlands and Jack Doohan from Australia. 

Chadwick made up two places on her starting position of fifth. The result is the best in her Formula 3 Asian Championship spell and with five races remaining she'll be targeting further podiums and maybe even a race win.

“Obviously earlier on in the race I managed to get passed Ukyo and I just maintained my pace from there,” Chadwick said after the race.

“It was difficult at the beginning of the race because it was a bit greasy and I thought it was going to get dryer towards the end, so I started battling with Joey but I thought he had a bit more pace so I stopped to save my tyres.

“I then settled into my pace and Joey had a bit more than me at that stage, but I settled into third, so it was a bit of a boring race for me.”
