France Preview Quotes: Jordan

Narain Karthikeyan: "I am glad we are back in Europe and that the next two races in Magny-Cours and Silverstone are tracks that I am familiar with. Magny-Cours is one of the circuits that suits my driving style. I always find a good balance and rhythm and enjoy driving here. Finding the limits of this quite technical, fast-corner circuit seemed not to be too difficult so I hope it will be the same experience driving a Formula One car."

France Preview Quotes: Jordan

Tiago Monteiro: "We are heading to France after an amazing race and opportunity in Indianapolis with my first podium and points with the team. However, we also have to come back to reality, as we know we still have to improve the car a lot. We will have to keep up the good work and our reliability record to maybe hope for some more points later on in the season, but now we are even more motivated. France is very important for me. I have raced there at the beginning of my racing career and I have a lot of fans and friends there. I could nearly say that it is one of my home races. I also know the circuit at Magny-Cours pretty well. I have tested the new EJ15B in Barcelona last week and we experienced some teething problems. It looked very nice and aggressive but we definitely need more running before being able to use it for the race."

Robert Doornbos: "I have raced in Magny-Cours in junior formulas, in F3 and F3000 and I was quite successful in both. It is a special circuit a little bit in the middle of nowhere. The track is quite challenging and pretty fast. You can make quite a difference with the chicanes there. Now with the upgrade on the car I look forward to driving it on Friday."

Adrian Burgess - Sporting Director: "We have been working really hard in between the last two fly-aways and the next pair of double- headers. We tested the new car last week at Barcelona for 2 days. Most the signs were very favourable. However, we do have some issues we would like to resolve before we race the car. Therefore, in Magny-Cours, we will stay with the EJ15 and we will decide after France if we want to race the new car at Silverstone or not. One of our objectives is to keep our very good reliability record and this is why we will not introduce the new car until we are satisfied with its reliability."
