Jaguar Racing got preparations underway for its final event, with the opening practice session for the 2004 Brazilian Grand Prix.

All three cars completed their allocated programmes, with Mark Webber, Bjorn Wirdheim and Christian Klien setting 13th, 19th and 21st fastest times respectively. All three did some tyre selection work, with Webber and Wirdeheim conducting further aerodynamic comparisons.

"The circuit's still very dusty and slippery," said Webber, "but the balance of the car improved through the session. I'm optimistic we can give the team a pretty good send off this weekend."

Klien suffered a quick spin at the Senna Esses but otherwise was quite satisfied with progress. "I'm still learning the track," he said, "as I've never raced here before. It's a very satisfying place for a driver but there's lots to learn. I think it will make more sense this afternoon."
