Williams impressed by Gordon

Jeff Gordon, the four-time NASCAR Winston Cup champion impressed the Williams team with his test at Indianapolis and he was only two seconds off the pace after just a handful of laps in the car - an impressive performance for a man who has never been in a Grand Prix car before.

Although the times really impressed the Williams men present the 31-year-old Californian admitted that going faster would not be easy.

"I can see where getting that last second is really tricky," Gordon said. "I'd love to sit here and play with the car but that experience in itself is what I came here for. What a fun, awesome experience!"
