Jones Joins Carlin For FIA Formula 3 European Championship

Dubai based driver Ed Jones has signed with Carlin for the 2014 FIA Formula 3 European Championship.

18 year-old Jones is a rising star in Formula 3, graduating as 2013 Formula 3 Open Champion following 10 podiums including six wins last season. Jones took the Formula 3 Open championship in a busy season which also saw him compete in Formula Renault 2.0 Euro and NEC as well as the Hockenheim round of the FIA Formula 3 European Championship.

Jones, who is the first of Carlin’s F3 team to be announced, will follow in the footsteps of Daniel Ricciardo, Jean-Eric Vergne, Max Chilton and Daniil Kvyat who have all raced in Carlin’s F3 team before reaching Formula 1.

Speaking about his new team, Ed said, “Carlin have a fantastic reputation in Formula 3 and it is very exciting to be joining the team for the 2014 season. I completed several days testing with the team before Christmas and really enjoyed driving the car. I can’t wait to get on track for the first official test and build on our progress over the winter.”

Trevor Carlin added, “As reigning Formula 3 Open Champion Ed clearly has the pace to run at the front. He tested with us before Christmas and we were very pleased with his progress over that short time. Ed helped us with several technical changes and his feedback as well as his pace was very impressive. He settled into the team well and I’ve no doubt that he will be a real asset in 2014.”

The FIA Formula 3 European Championship will kick off in Silverstone from 18 – 20th April.
