Takuma Sato today commenced a three day test with DHL Jordan Honda in warm and sunny conditions at Silverstone.

He completed 47 laps and recorded a quickest lap time of 1:24.03, which placed him fifth on the time charts. He worked on engine mapping, front suspension geometry, brake systems and general set-up work. A minor engine problem halted the team's programme early.

Takuma Sato:

"It was good weather today which is unusual for Silverstone. Overall it was good work but a few small problems cost us some time during the session. We did system checks on the new Honda engine and tried a new front suspension configuration, which works well. There are lots of things to do and this is a start. Today was a good base for the rest of the test."

Tomorrow Giancarlo Fisichella will join his team-mate for the remaining two days of the test.


Driver: Takuma Sato
