Jordan Give Up The Fags

AdvantagesSee text of opinion

DisadvantagesSee text of opinion

"...once again to lift his Jordan team from the also ran position it has occupied in the last couple of years into the big boy’s league of motor sport. ~ ~ There have been many “false dawns” at Jordan since they made their Formula One debut back in 1991. They won their very first Grand Prix in 1998, with former 1996 World Champion Damon Hill behind the wheel, and in a car powered by a Mugen-Honda engine. Two more wins were to follow ..." Read review

Inspired by yhwman

AdvantagesModern team with lots of promise and Eddie at the helm!

DisadvantagesSome poor results this season

"...ahem!), and in particular, the Jordan team. I guess it’s more to do with the man himself, Eddie Jordan, rather than anything to do with the best Formula One car, or the team with the best technological and speed advancements. Eddie is simply one of the nicest, liveliest and most fair team owners you could wish to meet. His flamboyant nature and ever-ready smile adds to his appeal and you can always count on EJ to be the life and soul at those ..." Read review

10 years no fears

AdvantagesGlamarous quite fast cars.

DisadvantagesMore motivation and hopefully more reliability

"EJ or Eddie Jordan was a man with a mission when he founded the Jordan team in 1991. 10 years on in 2001 he's still on that mission. Though he has come far in a decade he still hasn't managed to get a Jordan car to win a championship title. EJ has his own style of managing slightly relaxed but determined.You could say, 'never say die', if you know what I mean. The Honda engine package was well ok and it was in close competition with fellow Honda ..." Read review

2000 Brought A Different Kind Of Success

AdvantagesEverything in place for 2001: Drivers, Engine, Designer.

Disadvantages2000 track performance not as good as 1999.

"Jordan have had an excellent 2000 season, despite their lack of frequent points finishes compared to last year. Their true success lies not in how they have performed this year, but in how they have prepared themselves for 2001. Eddie Jordan has succeeded where many others (Sauber, Prost, Minardi) have failed in securing a top-line engine deal for next year when they will run Honda engines. Honda originally passed over Jordan in favour of British ..." Read review

rising stars

AdvantagesA Team on the up!

DisadvantagesLikely to disappoint

"Jordan are one of the only teams in the last ten years to have actually managed firstly to survive and secondly to actually have a reasonable amount of success. Where as Pacific and Simtek fell by the wayside, Jordan has managed to continue and even prosper. The Team was set-up in 1991 and is based at Silverstone. They have had a number of famous drivers including Michael Schumaker who had his first formula one drive with this team before moving onto ..." Read review

Spa performance or disappointment ?

AdvantagesOne point achieved

DisadvantagesOnly one car finished the race

"...a very successful qualifying for Jordan at the Belgian Grand Prix I am very disappointed at only one point being achieved by the team. With Jarno Trulli starting in second position I was confident that this could be the turning point of the season. After an incident with Button after only 4 laps I was to return home disappointed again. What has happened to the team which last year looked like it was closing in on Ferrari and McClaren ? This season ..." Read review

Not where they want to be.

AdvantagesA great car once

Disadvantagesthis season its too slow

"...through lack of trying. Eddie Jordan seems to bend over backwards for his team and so do his employees. Its just gremlins that spoil it. Whether it be the grip problems of last season or the electronic curse of this year, something always affects the team. At the last Grand Prix, (A1 Ring Austria) both cars were stranded on the grid after failures of electrics. If Eddie is to succeed, he needs some help form his Irish Lady Luck. The car is just ..."

Could be better

AdvantagesNice team.

DisadvantagesNot as competitive

"Jordon is not a bad car, but they are not doing as well as they were last year. It is not a bad package and was once said to be the best of the rest, but now Williams, Benneton and even BAR, are getting the better of them. So this mid field battle of teams, are quite even. Jordon haven't won many races, and there is great team spirit with Eddie Jordon around the pits. It is a nice outfit, and also a fairly good driver combination. Some reliablity ..." Read review

Big steps backwards last year, can they change

AdvantagesGood team

DisadvantagesSlow Team

"...units not customer engines like Jordan were subjected to. They always make nice looking motor cars and Trulli and Frentzen are no slouches off the grid so it had to be the car somewhere. This year they look a different kettle of fish. The hunger is back alongside dual Works engine deal with BAR. The car looks sleek and Frentzen looks back to his best. In the first race, Harry Heinz looked dangerous until Rubens took him out of the race. ..." Read review

Have a go heroes

AdvantagesEddie Jordan as inspired team leader

DisadvantagesAlways struggling to play catch-up with the big two

"...that after the big two, Jordan Grand Prix are with the following group and near the front of that too. The 2001 season will be a make or break year for them though. After the incredible successes in 1998, their first GP win at Spa with Damon Hill and followed home by Ralf Schumacher in a Jordan 1-2, and then 1999's successes with Heinz Harold Frentzen and Damon Hill, 2000 was a relative disaster. Not only had they lost out on the race for the works ..." Read review

my favourite team!

Advantages

Disadvantages

"a lot was expected of jordan,my favourite team this year after their 3rd place constructors finish last time around.They have not quite met the expectations and hopes of most people,but have two good drivers in trulli and frentzen.I feel that the performance of the cars in qualifying is one contributor to why the team has not done as well as it could,and perhaps should have so far this season. they currently lie 6th in the standings,when they were ..."

FORD VS HONDA ON JORDAN

Advantagesgood engines, but a lose of honda

Disadvantageshonda, honda, honda

"...in the back of a Jordan they would be champions. It was a very slow start, but with the help of Damon Hill, they won there first race at Spa with a Jordan 1, 2 after a very funny race. The weather had a big play in the matter, and once Michael Schumacher hit the back of David Coulthard McLearn on lap 31, and with the 1996 world champion in 2nd and his team mate in 3rd with no real challangers, the race was set. For one it was nice to see Honda being ..." Read review

Jordan-Less Competitive than Last Year ?

AdvantagesGood driver pairing

DisadvantagesTechnical failures this season Lot of retirements

"...of the very popular Northamptonshire-based Jordan team in 2000. However,the signs are that Jordon are looking less competitive now than they were last season when,eg,brilliant team strategy saw Heinz-Harold Frentzen make the most of a wet race to claim victory in the French grand prix ahead of Mika Hakkinen and Rubens Barrichello. The driver pairing at Jordan currently is a strong one with the immensely talented Frentzen and the up and coming Jarno ..." Read review

Whats happening ?

AdvantagesGood when on form

DisadvantagesA bad season

"...laughing. Maybe the news that Jordan will be using full Honda works engines next season will be something to look forward to but this won’t help their current situation. They were doing better last year and with Damon Hill at the end of his career, Frentzen was looking good. I do hope that Trulli and Frentzen have a better end to their season than they did the start. Jordan have proved in the past that they are a team with strong capabilities lets ..." Read review

Will one day on top

AdvantagesFast cars, good mechanics, skilled drivers

DisadvantagesFew reliability problems

"Every year it seems that Jordan get better and better, and as they do this they seem to be able to attract the better drivers. I don't really have a favourite team in Formula 1, but I always like to see the British teams doing well and it is nice to see that Jordan are probably the third best team in front of Williams and behind Ferrari making McClaren the outstanding team. They have two very skilled drivers, I had my doubts about Trulli when he first ..." Read review
