Giancarlo Fisichella completed 17 laps today as he continued testing in Barcelona with the Jordan Ford EJ13, in conditions which were damp and cool in the morning but becoming warm and dry in the afternoon.

The team lost some time as it was hampered by mechanical teething problems, however Fisichella was able to make progress with scheduled work on system checks and engine mapping, producing useful data for the team to evaluate.

Gary Anderson, Director of Race and Test Engineering:

"We had various problems today, but fortunately we know why they happened and we overcame most of them to get the car out and running again in the afternoon. Giancarlo was able to do three timed laps on dry tyres, and the last runs highlighted a small problem which will be rectified overnight ready for tomorrow. I'm pleased that we were able to collect some data from dry track conditions, giving us something useful to analyse to help us understand the car better."
