Triple Eight's Andrew Jordan says he's pleased with improvement shown from MG at Donington Park despite a controversial incident with Honda's Matt Neal in race three.

Jordan and Neal came to blows at McLeans on lap six of the final race when battling over third place. The MG came off worse following the contact and had to take to the gravel trap as the Honda grabbed the position.

The duo then ended the race first and second after navigating their way through the dramatic on-track action but Jordan felt the positions should have been swapped round due to the earlier incident.

Even before the lap-six drama, Jordan and Neal had already embroiled themselves in battle -something which the Triple Eight driver believes bears some significance during their later scuffle.

"I would expect the result to get switched round with Matt [Neal]," Jordan told crash.net directly after the race.

"Matt [Neal] is very good at outbraking there and if there's three-quarters of a gap and nibbles his way up the inside, then fair enough. He did a good move on me a couple of laps before but he should know I'm going to cover it when he's already caught me out.

"He said sorry to me in the interview. They shown me it live while doing the interview and there wasn't even half a gap there. I covered it then and there wasn't a gap so I'd be amazed if they didn't swap it around but, who know, this is touring cars."

Nevertheless, Jordan's performance was marked improvement from his Brands Hatch showing as the former Honda driver says he's now feeling much more at home in the Triple Eight MG.

Jordan's second place in race three - accompanied by two fourth place finishes earlier in the day - has catapulted the 2012 champion right into the thick of the title race in fourth position.

"Still though, it's been a very good weekend and we've made progress as I've now got the car doing what I want it to do," Jordan continued.

"Brands Hatch was a bad one we just didn't have any pace. We put our heads to work to get in getting to the bottom of it so now we're looking forward to going to Thruxton.

"I know what the car needs round there, I love the place. There's specific things we'll have to change from there but we tested there and was happy."
