SILVERSTONE
Wednesday 4 April 2001

Driver: Ricardo Zonta Jarno Trulli
Chassis: EJ11 chassis 05 EJ11 chassis 03

Another wet day at Silverstone prevented all teams present from making any major developments in their test programmes.Ricardo Zonta's Benson and Hedges Jordan Honda EJ11 aquaplaned off the flooded circuit on his installation lap in the morning with no damage sustained. The Brazilian ran a total of 31 laps all in wet conditions, as an unscheduled engine change prevented him from running later in the complete dry. Due to the weather, no clear track time could be achieved prior to lunch so the tyre test programme could not be progressed. The team therefore continued traction control software development for Barcelona. Jarno Trulli's race car arrived back later than anticipated from Brazil which delayed him from running until four o'clock, when he carried out a shake down and ran 10 laps in his car ready for a full day testing tomorrow. Both Jarno Trulli and Ricardo Zonta will continue with the final day of this week's test programme tomorrow, hopefully in improved conditions.
