Will the REAL Eddie Jordan please stand up.

There seem to be three or four going round at the moment, wearing loud shirts and disagreeing with each other.

No, didnt notice anything different about MS.

MS is very consistent in finishing second last within the top 5 teams (he is faster than Petrov, I give him that). The difference was that Kubica, Massa and Rosberg had problems.

(Kubica and Rosberg had technical problems, Massa just messed up).

i think all this is wishful thinking..especially on EJ's part. One race doesn't prove anything.

He's based his previous comments on MS results for the whole season, but somehow he thinks that one race can change everything.

Also...has he taken into account how MS finished in that position?

cobalt. i dared to say that , a couple of days ago, and was subjected to some abuse, so be careful! but i still agree. there was one slight improvement in schumis driving though. he kept pace with nco, and may have been faster as he asked his team to get nico to let him past, and was told to race for position. oh, and i nearly forgot, he didnt block or try to squeeze anyone off the track, so he must be getting better, at last. lets see if this improvement continues. i hope so!

And there was me beginning to give EJ the benefit of the doubt because of his last remarks rgarding MS, and he goes and spoils it all with this numpty rubbish.The only reason MS looked good is because his main rivals(at the back of the pack and his team mate) fell by the wayside, just think another five DNF's and he would have won!, wow thats quite an achievment,I dont think.Yes Eddie back to spouting drivel as usual.

RB claims that schey is as good as nico on fast corners but in the slow corners he cant work the tyres enough. We will see how he fares at korea. What makes this exciting is that not only car performance being an influence but who learns circuits quickest.

Basing a driver's performance on race results is not always a fair assessment, in fact it's a pretty silly correlation, and there are many, many factors to consider.
However, I still find it a touch silly what people are writing about MS, Jordan in particular, and once again I'm no fan, but these guys are human like the rest of us, but just have a great talent in a specific field, and as humans we have difficulty adapting to change.
Just because we “think” somebody should be up to speed immediately because of past history doesn't necessary mean that will be true. For a true comparison of performance we would also have to remove NR from F1 for the past 3 years, otherwise it like comparing apples with oranges, after all there is no doubt that NR has an advantage as he has been part of an evolving formula, one which has changed significantly.
This is not meant to take anything away from NR. Just put yourself in MS position and imagine all the new things he his going to have to overcome an

Eddie we saw the race, not much really changed. Shuey did take the fight to Nico and showed some of his ability to put the pressure on. Really Shuey did not display much as Nico had mechanical problems.

Next race I feel we will see some more speed. Maybe he is coming to grips with the cars antics.

Next year the heat will on, Shuey will have to put up (speed) or shut-up.

Then Mr. Jordan you can either smile or eat the Goat!
