Jordan eyes Davidson for 2006

Anthony Davidson, BAR Honda's test and reserve driver, will be driving a sole Jordan at Silverstone on Tuesday 13 September. The test is very much a one-off, and currently no contracts have been signed for 2006.

However, Jordan's top brass have never hidden their admiration for Davidson, with Adrian Burgess, the Silverstone teams Sporting Director, commenting recently that the team "would definitely be interested in Anthony, as he is a good talent. If we had a driver of that experience and ability, he'd be able to tell us a huge amount about the car and how to develop it."

Jordan's new Sporting Relations Manager, Johnny Herbert, feels the same. "He's the type of driver that would be a very good core part of the future here, so hopefully that would be something we can get together," Herbert told Reuters.

"He's one that you would seriously look at and say he'd be your leader, he's one of the better ones out there for sure," continued the three time Grand Prix winner. "If we can all get together and get into a position where we can do the right deal for both of us for the future of his career and the new career with Midland, I think it will be a very positive thing.

Davidson's test clashes with a planned three day test for BAR Honda in Barcelona, but the team have allowed the Briton to fly to Spain a day late, joining the Brackley squad on Wednesday.
