SILVERSTONE, ENGLAND, August 16, 2005 – Nicolas Kiesa is getting ready for an interesting Friday i Turkey.

It will be a completely new circuit for Nicolas Kiesa, as it will be for all drivers in Formula One. The Herman Tilke designed track will premiere on this years Formula One calendar, with Istanbul and Turkey as new flagposts on the F1 world map.

Nicolas comments: "During the three-week break, I have been doing a lot of physical training. To be honest, I am not sure that if I had had a race drive opportunity at Hockenheim or Budapest, I do not think I would have been physically ready for that. I have been doing a lot of work on strengthening my neck and shoulders.

"Turkey will be a new circuit for everyone, so it will be interesting to see how the different teams and drivers will adapt to the track. I was used to new circuits when I was driving in F3000. In my first year, every circuit we went to, I went straight into qualifying, so I had to learn quickly. I think I was quite good at that, so I hope it will be the same case here and that I will be able to do a good job for the team."

Jordan Sporting Director, Adrian Burgess comments:
"Turkey will host a whole variety of technical challenges for the team and the drivers, which will make the weekend more interesting than some other circuits we go to.

"Our drivers will not have the disadvantage of being the only ones not knowing the circuit as it will be new for everybody. For the team, there will no doubt be a few surprises, which will be motivating for the engineers and technicians in order to understand and get the best from the package available."
