San Marino Preview Quotes: Jordan

Narain Karthikeyan: "The test at Paul Ricard last week went very well. We did a lot of work trying to find the right Bridgestone tyres for San Marino but also for the next European races. We have also tested some new parts for the car and we are definitely making some progress. I did a lot of kilometres and I am particularly happy with my fitness. I do not really know what to expect from Imola because out of the Jordan drivers, I am the only one that has never driven on this circuit. It looks like I will need to use the kerbs a lot to get a good time, which will probably be a bit tricky. But having said that, Malaysia was also difficult, however I did well there so I am ready for the challenge and I will give my best."

Tiago Monteiro: "The two-day test we had at Paul Ricard was quite successful and interesting. We worked on some tyre construction with Bridgestone and I think we are on the right direction. It was difficult to have a proper idea, as we were the only Bridgestone runners at the test. We also tested different pieces for the car not only for Imola but also for the forthcoming races. It was definitely a good test and a good motivation to move on and push harder every time. Imola is not an easy circuit for the kind of car we have at the moment but generally I like this type of track. It will be very bumpy on the kerbs and very violent. Reliability throughout the weekend will again be very important and we will make sure we will keep on doing a good job as we have done since the beginning of the season and have a good result at the end."

Robert Doornbos: "I am really looking forward to Imola because it is the first round in Europe. I know the circuit very well, as it is where I had my first success in F3000 last year. I really enjoy driving there. It is a special track because you really need to set up the car for the high kerbstones and this will be a challenge for the drivers and the team. The three-week gap seems an eternity; I cannot wait to drive on Friday."

Trevor Carlin, Sporting Director: "We are really looking forward to going to Imola this coming weekend. We had a very successful test at Circuit Paul Ricard last week, where the drivers learnt a lot about the car and the team made a few improvements. Hopefully we can keep on building on our promising start to the season and keep improving in general on all different aspects."
