Irvine Plays Down Chances

Friday March 16th, 2001

Jaguar put in a fantastic performance during Friday's free practice sessions in Malaysia, but Eddie Irvine believes his fifth fastest time is not truly representative of the team's competitiveness.

The Ulsterman enjoyed "not a bad session", and was philosophical about his performance. "We are certainly going to be more competitive here than we were in Melbourne," said Irvine.

"We could be reasonably competitive in qualifying, but I would not expect to be as far up the grid as fifth."

Luciano Burti completed a happy day for Jaguar by setting the eighth fastest time in his first outing at the track to place the team firmly within the top-10.

"I had to use the first session to familiarise myself with the track," said Burti. "We managed to improve the car from the first session to the second.

"There's still more to come for tomorrow and I hope to extract more time out of the car for qualifying."
