Timo Glock finished the last race of 2004 in 15th position while Nick Heidfeld was forced to retire on lap 17 with a transmission problem.

Timo Glock, 15th:

"My start was not bad but I didn't get a good line through the first corner and then for the first part of the race it was really slippery - the car was pretty nervous and I lost time. After the first and second pit stops the car was better, certainly after the first few laps, when the tyres came in. Unfortunately I lost too much time when being lapped by other cars."

"I'm pleased to have finished the race without mistakes. It has been a satisfying season for me and it was great to drive four races, that was good experience for me. I need to learn how to find a better pace for racing, always improving myself more and more. Everything is experience though and I'm looking forward to next year already."

Nick Heidfeld, DNF:

"I had a good start and made up a couple of places, but I had to retire quite early with a clutch problem. It's disappointing not to finish the last race because I wanted to show a good performance and give the team a good last race of the season. I would like to thank everybody in the team for their effort and hard work they have done this year and also for all the support they have given me."

Eddie Jordan, Chief Executive:

"It's been a very difficult season but I am hugely heartened nevertheless by progress with several issues this weekend that hopefully will show Formula One and Jordan can be great again. There have been rumours about the team all season and I want to thank my staff in particular, as well as the guys at Pi, Cosworth and Bridgestone, our suppliers and every person who is closely involved with us."

"They have all shown commitment and fighting spirit throughout, never giving up in spite of very tough times. The experience has strengthened us all and I believe that fortune favours the brave. Brazil 2004 may be remembered for more than the racing - for Jordan and for Formula One."
