Ralph Firman will join Jordan Ford's test session in Jerez, Spain this week with the Brit returning to the driving seat alongside Nick Heldfeld on Friday 5 December. It will be the second time he has driven an EJ13 since the last race of the season following impressive F1 demonstration runs as part of the Macau Grand Prix celebrations last month.

Firman said he was looking forward to the test: "My only previous experience of the Jerez track came in the mid-1990s when I briefly tested the McLaren as a result of winning the McLaren Autosport Young Driver of the Year Award. The battle for race drives in Formula One has never been tougher, but I am determined to do everything I can to help the team and earn my place in the line up next season."

This morning (Wednesday 3 December) Heidfeld kicked off the test session, Jordan's first since the 2003 season ended with Czech FIA Formula 3000 driver Jarek Janis in the second EJ13 on 3 and 4 December.
