Jordan third driver Nicolas Kiesa finished day one of the Turkish Grand Prix 23rd out of the 25 drivers present - despite losing 20-minutes of the afternoon session, although he would later admit that his neck couldn't have taken much more track time anyway.

"I had a good day today," summed up Kiesa. "This morning was a bit challenging, as the circuit is quite difficult to learn and there are many blind corners, but I have learnt the layout faster than I expected. After five or six laps I could start to push.

"I had a small problem in the afternoon so I lost some 20-minutes. However, to be honest, I could not have done much with the time as I was struggling again with my neck.

"This is an anti-clockwise circuit and even the race drivers, who have done more than 20 000km this year, were having a hard time too. Since I started with Jordan in Hockenheim, I have done only 350km so I expected it to be really tough," he confessed.
