Jordan completes Silverstone test

COIMBATORE, FEB. 12. Jordan Grand Prix completed its Silverstone test on Friday with Tiago Monteiro and Narain Karthikeyan at the wheel making progress with the EJ15 test schedule despite damp weather conditions limiting track running, according to a Jordan GP media release here.

Monteiro carried out a programme which included start and pit stop practice as well as general testing work, while Narain installed a new Jordan Toyota EJ15 chassis in preparation for Jordan's two car test at Barcelona next week (Feb. 15 to 18).

Narain said, "Wednesday was a good day for me and we got a lot done. This week we have made a start with our huge workload of preparation for this season and it's been really enjoyable. The weather has been pretty poor but I'm used to that now in England! We've got the car installed and I'm looking forward to more testing in a few days time."

Trevor Carlin, Sporting Director of Jordan Grand Prix, said, "the foggy and rainy weather conditions which are fairly typical for Silverstone at this time of year have restricted our work a bit this week but we are pleased to have got over 900 km of test mileage despite that. The drivers know what they have to do and are really stuck in to the programme now, which is great. We had a late start but so much has progressed in the last three weeks. We're ready to go with two cars and looking forward to getting through a lot more of our test plans next week in Barcelona."

Tiago said, "it was a successful week overall. It was a time to get to know each other, check a lot of things and get everything up and running. I think we achieved that. We didn't get much running in the dry and I really wish I could have done more dry laps. — Our Sports Reporter
