MICHEL JOURDAIN JR. DRIVES FOR THE FIRST TIME AT SEPANG

His main goal is to collect his first points in the A1GP The World Cup of Motorsports

Mexican diver Michel Jourdain Jr. drove for the first time at the 5.54-Km. (3.44-mile) Sepang International Circuit in Malaysia, which hosts Round 3 of the A1GP The World Cup of Motorsports from November 23-25. Jourdain Jr. expects to collect his first points in the international series during his second participation in the championship.

Today's free practise sessions were held under hot and humid conditions. In the first practice, the Mexican Team was seventh in the first segment of the session and ninth in the second one. Being ninth overall in the rookie session, while in the last practise they were 20th.

"We are already at Sepang, in Malaysia. I feel much better, mainly physically in comparison how I felt at Brno. I've worked very hard in the physical part.," Jourdain Jr. said.

"In the rookie practise I was seventh and ninth. In the second practise when I was driving on fresh tyres I had a misunderstanding with another driver on the third lap. Then, trying to avoid him I've spun. I think the new tyres were damaged there a little bit. We ended up being 20th, but I think that we have a lot of room to improve. I think that I know where we can improve our performance and my goal this weekend is to collect points," he said.

"I feel the car is pretty good. Now I think that I need more laps and to adapt to this track," the Mexican driver said.
