Dutch F1 ace Robert Doornbos has admitted that he is keen to resume his fruitful partnership with Menu Motorsport in the Far East, but knows that he has one more hurdle in the F3 Euroseries to get over before he can begin thinking about the two street races ahead.

Doornbos first teamed up with Menu at Spa-Francorchamps - where he took a mutual maiden pole for the British team - and returned to the cockpit at Brands Hatch where he converted a front row start into a podium finish behind Nelson Piquet Jr. His anticipation of the double-header in Macau and Korea has been heightened by a test with Mike Baker's team at Snetterton this week, where some new and positive developments were found on the car.

"After two days preparing for my F3000 test with Arden, I went to Snetterton and tested with Menu in preparation of the Macau and Korea races," Doornbos confirmed, "We tried some very positive changes on the car, particularly with a view to the set-up we are going to use for Macau, and we were very impressed with how the test went.

"I can't wait to get the plane for Hong Kong, but I must take one thing at a time, because now I have to focus on my Ghinzani car for the last round of the F3 Euroseries at Magny-Cours this weekend."

Doornbos currently lies tenth overall in the inaugural Euroseries standings, and will be looking to cement his place at the French Grand Prix circuit.
