Jordan Grand Prix announces today that the Team will be testing the first EJ15B at the Circuit de Catalunya, Barcelona, with Tiago Monteiro and Narain Karthikeyan sharing the driving duties on Thursday 23 and Friday 24 June 2005.
Adrian Burgess, Jordan Grand Prix Sporting Director, said: "Until we conduct our initial track test at Barcelona on Thursday and Friday, it is hard to say exactly how much of an improvement the new EJ15B will be."
"The results are a long study of the problems we have with the current car. We have addressed as many points and issues as we could without designing a completely new car. This is an updated version. We think we have made substantial gains in terms of downforce and drag reduction."
"The car should be far more efficient than the previous model and it certainly looks a step closer to the opposition. If it performs as well as it looks, hopefully we will be looking forward to challenging the Red Bull and Sauber cars and being further ahead of Minardi."
