Britain Preview Quotes: Jordan

Narain Karthikeyan: "I have had good memories of Silverstone as it was there that I had my first podium when I was racing in Formula 3. Usually I always go well at Silverstone and this is a circuit I know quite well. I like Silverstone, especially the Becketts complex, where the car goes so fast and you can really feel the speed of the car. At that special corner, you go as fast as 220 km/h so there is a lot of g-force. I hope we will be able to finish the race, particularly there in front of Jordan Grand Prix home crowd."

Britain Preview Quotes: Jordan

Tiago Monteiro: "Silverstone is a very important race for Jordan Grand Prix because of the proximity of its factory. A lot of guests will be there and we will need to perform well. It is a very demanding and difficult track. It will probably be one of the hardest for our car. We are also starting a very long month so we should stay in good shape and focused on everything. I am definitely looking forward to the weekend."

Robert Doornbos: "It is a home race for Jordan Grand Prix so I expect a big party when I arrive at Silverstone. I really enjoy driving on this circuit. It is a bit similar to Magny-Cours with fast corners. Once again I will be driving the new EJ15B car on Friday morning and we hope we will be able to improve it more, as well as testing some different types of Bridgestone tyres. I will have a very busy day as time really flies in two hours."

Adrian Burgess, Sporting Director: "We are all looking forward to racing at Silverstone our Home Grand Prix, with the factory being so close. We would like to do especially well here with the presence of our factory-based staff, sponsors, guests and fans, who will support us throughout the weekend. Silverstone is a track familiar to our three drivers and it requires the car to be good aerodynamically, mechanically and in terms of power, so it is challenging in every respect for engineers and designers. Robert Doornbos will be driving the new EJ15B on Friday as he did in Magny-Cours and we are looking at adding more mileage and going on with the development of the car for a possible introduction in the race at Hockenheim."
