Gerry Hughes has joined Jordan's race engineering team to engineer the third car at races and oversee engineering for the team's test programme. The 33 year old joins from Jaguar Racing, where he was Eddie Irvine's race engineer for two years, prior to which he worked in touring cars with Williams from 1996 - 1999 and Prodrive in 2000, winning championships with both teams.

Gary Anderson, Director of Race and Test Engineering, said, "I'm very happy to have Gerry on board. I've worked with him before and he has a wealth of experience which will strengthen our race engineering team."

Rob Smedley continues in his role as Giancarlo Fisichella's race engineer, while Dominic Harlow moves from the T-car to engineer the other race driver. James Key, who was Takuma Sato's race engineer in 2002, has moved to Jordan's Aerodynamics department, where his responsibilities will include correlating between circuit aerodynamic data and wind tunnel aerodynamic data.

Anderson added, "James did a great job in the race engineers group however he wanted to move on to focus on aerodynamics. We always want to find ways of exploiting the talent we have at Jordan in the best way possible."
