The new(ish) Jordan appears

The new Jordan EJ15 is a tidied up version of the 2004 car, in line with the new regulations and fitted with the latest Toyota V10 engine. The team was planning to build a second car for later in the year although it is now not clear whether or not this will happen following the departure of technical director Mark Smith and the confirmation that the team will have Dallara-built chassis next season. The first car was shaken down yesterday by Tiago Monteiro on the national circuit at Silverstone. The shakedown work will continue for the rest of the week with Monteiro and Narain Karthikeyan both driving.
