Eddie Jordan says his team's findings match the information that the FIA is considering in regard to the result of the Brazilian Grand Prix. The evidence suggests that Giancarlo Fisichella had already started his 56th lap when the race was red-flagged, therefore he should be the official winner. If he had started that lap, the two-lap countback to lap 54 would have the Italian in the lead.

"I've spoken to Fisi, he and I believed that he'd won the race from the beginning," said Eddie Jordan, according to Reuters. "That's why I was going with him up to the podium. We agree with the FIA that our evidence is exactly in keeping with theirs. There is no doubt that Fisichella had started lap 56 before the red flag and we are anxiously awaiting the result of Friday's meeting."

Fisichella himself is not getting too excited about what could be his first ever Grand Prix victory, feeling that even if the decision does go his way, he was robbed of his rightful place on the podium.

"The team has sent very important data but I don't want to have any illusions before Friday. I don't want to be hurt all over again," Fisichella told Italy's ANSA news agency. "If the victory is given to me I will be more than happy, but nonetheless I will still be irritated that I couldn't get on the podium top spot and celebrate as I deserved."
