Zonta quickest for Jordan on first day of Silverstone test
RICARDO ZONTA boosted the Jordan team's morale by topping the times in the first day of testing at a rain-hit Silverstone circuit on Tuesday.
Brazilian Zonta worked on electronics and the engine problem that caused Heinz-Harald Frentzen to breakdown in the latter stages of the Brazilian Grand Prix on Sunday.
Zonta ran over 11 seconds quicker than the rest of the field as he was able to set his best time before the track got wet.
McLaren test-driver Alexander Wurz was second quickest, but unlike Patrick Lemarie who tested British American Racing's fourth chassis, Wurz was unable to test McLaren's fourth car as it was not deemed ready.
BAR tester Lemarie was third fastest and completed the most laps - 36 - at the Northamptonshire track as he ran almost a second quicker than team-mate and BAR driver Olivier Panis, who was last in the times.
