Although the staff at Jordan's Silverstone headquarters and Brackley wind tunnel will be extremely busy over the Christmas and New Year period, the final day of the full working year saw Eddie Jordan address his personnel and receive resounding applause after spelling out his hopes for 2003 and appreciation for all the work undertaken in 2002.

With staff having read a welter of media speculation and innuendo in recent weeks, some of which bracketed the team alongside recent team failures, Jordan took the opportunity to confirm the strength of the company and his optimism for the future.

"You hear all kinds of things in this business, but we know the reality," he said. "I can say to you that not only are we here for the long haul but we are stronger than ever because we are a well managed company who have enjoyed good sponsors in the past and will continue to do so in the future."

"Sure we went through some pain when we reduced our numbers earlier this year, but we have a fantastic team of people, the Ford engine is outstanding, the new car looks great and Fisichella is raring to go. We want to be back up there in the top 4 in Formula One, and with our plans unfolding for next season we have every reason to look forward it. There's a lot happening, some of which I cannot discuss with you just yet, but it's exciting."

Jordan thanked everyone for their outstanding efforts throughout 2002 and wished them and their families a happy Christmas and New Year. He also congratulated the team's Sports and Social Club for organising last weekend's Christmas Party which was among the best in Jordan's 12 year history -- a true end of season celebration.
