Canada Preview Quotes: Jordan

Narain Karthikeyan: "The two North American races will be a bit difficult for me as I have never driven on these circuits; which will be different from my team mate who has already raced in Montreal when he was in Champ Car. However, I think I will enjoy driving in Canada as it seems to be very similar to Australia, a track that I particularly liked. I will have to spend the first sessions learning the layout but that should be OK. I know this is a circuit which has been quite successful for Jordan Grand Prix; I will then give my all and try to have a good race and a good result for the team."

Canada Preview Quotes: Jordan

Tiago Monteiro: "Montreal is a very nice track for the drivers but for the public as well. Its location on the island and the scenery around it are amazing. It usually a track where you can fight, as there are quite high speed chicanes and a lot of hard braking, so there is a potential to overtake. I have enjoyed racing in Montreal when I was in Champ Car and I am really looking forward to driving a Formula One car there. It is also the start of two fly away races, therefore we have to keep fit, focused and improve on the good work we have been doing."

Trevor Carlin - Sporting Director: "We are really looking forward to the next two fly-away races. We would like to do especially well in Canada, which is the home base of the Midland Group. Canada will be a new track for Narain, however I am sure he will learn it very quickly. Tiago has raced there in Champ Car, so it will make his job a bit easier."

Why F1’s inconvenient penalties have to stay

OPINION: Quibbles over the length of time taken by Formula 1's stewards over decisions are entirely valid. But however inconvenient it is, there can be no questioning the importance of having clearly defined rules that everyone understands and can stick to. Recent events have shown that ambiguity could have big consequences
