We are Getting There, Says Rahal

Thursday June 28th, 2001

Jaguar Racing chief Bobby Rahal believes his squad are at last beginning to attain the respect they have been seeking since the start of the year.

The team made some major developments to the R2 before the Monaco Grand Prix, and Rahal was delighted to see his cars come home seventh and eighth in the last race at the Nurburgring.

"Our objective at the beginning of this season was respectability and I'd like to think that we're getting some way to achieving that now," said Rahal. "The Nurburgring performance highlighted that we are now operating in a manner that's consistent with our mission for this season.

"We are a new team with new people and you'll never catch Ferrari, McLaren or Williams over one or two seasons alone - our experience, resource and capability are growing but we are not yet equipped to fight the big boys head-on.

"We are, however, getting very close indeed to Jordan, BAR and Sauber. We have greatly reduced the gap to these teams to the extent that we must now capitalise upon our full potential."
