Free practice at Silverstone was trouble-free for DHL Jordan Honda and the team was able to get through its set-up programme in spite of the extremely wet and changeable weather conditions. Both drivers are happy with the car's balance and feel positive about the EJ12's potential to qualify well tomorrow.

GIANCARLO FISICHELLA

"The car went well today, as it usually does in wet conditions. I was quite confident and we worked through the set-up plan and obviously we took that in the right direction. We are quite confident about tomorrow. If it is wet, we could to be on the third or fourth row, although if it is dry, we may find it difficult to reach the top ten."

TAKUMA SATO

"It was a very good day. Bridgestone have brought us very good intermediate tyres which meant we were able to be very quick. Giancarlo and I are comfortable with driving in the wet and we enjoyed the run today. I am confident at this circuit and I have been able to go flat out immediately because I didn't have to spend time learning the track, so there was a lot of time for trying tyres and set-up work."

GARY ANDERSON DIRECTOR OF RACE AND TEST ENGINEERING

"We had no problems today really, apart from the conditions. We tried a few different tyres, but with constantly changing conditions it's difficult to know how the car will behave. We completed everything that we were planning to do and there are a few problems to fix but I'm relatively happy."

The T car is set up for Giancarlo Fisichella for tomorrow's qualifying.
