Jaguar Boss Plays Down Canada Hopes

Tuesday June 5th, 2001

Chairman of Jaguar Cars Wolfgang Reitzle has played down his team's hopes of further glory at this weekend's Canadian Grand Prix. After improvements to the team's R2 car for the last race in Monaco, Eddie Irvine drove to the marque's first ever Formula One podium finish with third place.

But Reitzle is expecting things to be different on the Montreal track as the car has not yet been proven on a fast circuit.

"We shouldn't allow too much excitement," warned Reitzle. "And we shouldn't expect a podium place in the next race. It was definitely one step forward to a higher performance but the next race is on a high-speed track and it may already look different.

"The driveability of our car is so much better but it is not yet proved that it will pay off on a high-speed course so we have to be a little bit grounded on the basis of reality."
