Following Sunday morning's final aggregated qualifying session for the Bahrain Grand Prix, where Tiago Monteiro and Narain Karthikeyan qualified 17th and 18th respectively, it was a case of mixed fortunes for Jordan Grand Prix during the race.

Monteiro brought the car to the chequered flag in 10th position while Karthikeyan's efforts came to a premature end when he had to retire on lap 3 when his car stopped on the track due to an electrical problem which the team is investigating.

Tiago Monteiro, 10th

"I am really happy for the team and for myself that I finished in the top ten at my third race. It was a very difficult race because of the heat as it is not easy to control the car in such high temperatures. Everyone in the team has done a very good job over the weekend "

Narain Karthikyan, retired

"It is really a pity I had to retire in the race as I made a really good start and I managed to overtake a few cars. I was keeping up the pace but suddenly the car just stopped on the track because of an electrical problem."

Trevor Carlin, Sporting director:

"We are slightly disappointed that Narain had a problem on the third lap and could not finish the race as he made up some good positions and things were looking quite good. Tiago has done a fantastic job to bring the car home in very difficult conditions. We are very pleased with our first top ten finish and we are improving at every race a little bit at a time."
