Israeli racing driver, Yarin Stern, completed the most successful season of his career on Sunday, ending the final race of the Formula 3 EuroFormula Open series in third place in Barcelona.

The 19-year-old notched his second double-podium of the season after also finishing Saturday's race in Barcelona in third position.

The West-Tec driver ended the season in fifth place overall in the standings and continues to believe that he will one day become the first Israeli in Formula 1.

"The 2014 season was the best of my career, including six podium finishes and fifth place overall in the drivers' standings," he said.
"It was a challenging season for me as I also began my IDF service. But despite the concerns I managed to remain competitive with a lot of determination and I'm proud of the final result. Of course I'm not stopping here and I'll continue to work hard until I reach Formula 1."
