Smith back in harness at Jordan

Mark Smith has rejoined Jordan Grand Prix as Technical Director, returning to the team where he spent 10 years before moving to Renault. Smith was one of Jordan's original designers in 1991.

"Returning to Jordan has two main facets for me," says Smith. "Firstly, the motivating factor is of course to play a key role in moving the team towards the front of the F1 grid. This will be neither easy nor instant but it is a challenge that I relish. Secondly, this team represents something a little special for me since I was fortunate to have the opportunity of being one of the three designers of the first Jordan F1 car, the 191. I am looking forward to playing a part in what I personally regard as the next Jordan generation."
