Jordan Honda today completed its second three-day test of 2002 with Giancarlo Fisichella and Takuma Sato, in warm, dry and sunny conditions at Valencia.

The drivers ran their EJ11s with very few problems all day, although a minor problem with the car caused Fisichella to spin off and he subsequently lost around two hours of running time. He was still able to complete 105 laps, and posted the second fastest time of 1:12.78, while Sato finished 104 laps, with his best lap time of 1:13.52 placing him fourth.

The team carried out extensive tyre testing for Bridgestone with both drivers, and Sato also spent time evaluating development brakes.

Overall the session has been very productive and the team is satisfied with positive results from development gearbox internals and uprights, as well as extensive work over the three days with launch and traction control.

Jordan Honda leaves Valencia now to prepare for a three-day test at Silverstone from 22 to 24 January.
