Jordan Ford experience a relatively trouble free practice day at Hungaroring ahead of this weekends Grand Prix. Heidfeld, Pantano and Glock collectively completed a total of 98 laps on the 4.381km long circuit, and were positive ahead of tomorrow qualifying session.

Nick Heidfeld:

"It was a good day for us because we didn't have any technical problems and that allowed us to do a lot of laps. It was also very productive for us in terms of trying various things on the car. Plus, in terms of our positions on the timing charts it's a better Friday for us."

Timo Glock:

"First practice was quite good for me, and I learnt the track fairly quickly. I did some tyre comparisons and it was interesting to see the difference between the two sessions as the feel was completely different in the afternoon, which makes it a little bit difficult to choose the right tyre. We will have to look at the information and discuss with the other drivers' feedback. The last run was good for me although I lost time at the first corner braking zone, other than that the lap time was okay and I was satisfied that we all did a good job."

Giorgio Pantano:

"This afternoon we found our tyre comparison work a little bit strange given the changing grip conditions. We need to understand why this was so we can decide the limits of our car and tyre package at this track and which way to go for the race."

James Robinson, Head of race and test engineering:

"It's great to be back racing - after a three week break you tend to miss it so it's really good to be back on top of that, we had a good, solid start to our first day. We have two very strong tyre choices from Bridgestone and it's difficult to know which of them to go with as they both offer great performance. We had no mechanical problems at all and completed a good reliable day's homework. We also saw a solid days work from Timo, this being his first experience of this unique track."
