Fresh from his successful outing at Macau, Oliver Jarvis will hope to carry his winning form to Malaysia this coming weekend as he returns to the Team Great Britain seat for the latest round of the A1GP season.

Jarvis, who won the feature race in the opening meeting of the season at Zandvoort, returns to the team after a busy few weeks, which saw him secure third in the Japanese F3 Championship, take part in the GP2 test at Paul Ricard, run in a McLaren Mercedes MP4-21 at Silverstone as part of his prize for winning the 2005 McLaren Autosport BRDC Young Driver of the Year Award and then win the Macau Grand Prix in dominant fashion.

Now the youngster will hope to impress at the home of the Malaysian Grand Prix, with Jarvis competing in all sessions over the weekend as he remains eligible for the rookie practice.

"I cannot wait to get out to Malaysia - it seems like ages since I last drove the A1GP car," he said. "It will be my first time racing in Sepang and from what I understand it's a demanding circuit both mentally and physically. I think the humidity will also be a big factor so it will be a fairly challenging weekend.

"But following on from my feature race win in Zandvoort and Robbie's second place in the Brno Sprint race I think the team has a very good chance of two strong finishes. The aim is to at least get podium finishes and hopefully stand on the top step and continue GBR's strong form from the last ten races."

Team principal Katie Clements admitted that she was hopeful of a another strong weekend from the team at Sepang and said she was confident of seeing Jarvis continue where he left off at Zandvoort.

"We have all been encouraged by our excellent start to the season," she said. "Oliver and Robbie have each put in strong performances to keep A1 Team GBR in sight of the series leaders. With a win already under his belt this season, Oliver is keen to pick up where he left off at Zandvoort and we are confident we can continue with our strong form on a circuit where we went well last year."
