15/04/2005

Tiago Monteiro and Narain Karthikeyan carried out two days of testing for Jordan Grand Prix on the Circuit Paul Ricard, in the South of France on 13, 14 and 15 April, contributing to the team's preparations for the San Marino Grand Prix. The drivers' schedule consisted of intensive work on Bridgestone's tyre test programme, set-up work and potential modifications for forthcoming races. Karthikeyan completed the greatest number of laps on the Thursday with 183 laps. Between them the drivers clocked up a total testing mileage of over 1000km and fastest lap time was on the last day with Monteiro's time of 1.00.505 (66 laps).

Paul Monaghan, Chief Race Engineer: "It was an encouraging test as we have made a little bit of progress; especially in taking a couple of small steps forward in terms of tyre development for Imola and the races beyond. We have done a lot of work on the set-up of the car, which looked quite promising. We have added more than 1000km to the car's mileage without serious problems so the reliability is good. Now the drivers need to develop their knowledge of the car a little bit more and get used to the kerbed circuit."
