Christian Jones Motorsport recently returned a famous Asian name to the cockpit of a racing car, running John Marcelo in one of its Formula Three cars.

The Philippino driver is the younger brother of the late Jovy Marcelo, who perished in a practice accident at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in 1992, having recently graduated to the CART series as Formula Atlantic champion.

"It was fantastic to see a Marcelo back behind the wheel of a race car," team owner Christian Jones admitted, "I'm honoured to give John his first test in a Formula Three car. His brother was a true champion"

Jones, the son of F1 world champion Alan Jones and current holder of the Asian F3 title, added that he hoped to be able to run Marcelo in this year's series.

"John did a good job today considering his experience and, after seeing how much he enjoyed the experience - and the smile on his father's face - I will try to make that possible," he said.
