February 17, 2005 17:44 IST
Narain Karthikeyan and Tiago Monteiro continued Jordan Grand Prix's test programme in Barcelona, making steady progress and completing test mileage of 76 and 32 laps respectively.
"It was a good day and among other things we spent time updating Tiago's car to EJ15 specification, so he got some runs in the afternoon with the latest specification.
"Narain improved his time, he did a 1:19.2 and was working through some more of Bridgestone's tyre test programme. Tiago's best time was 1:19.7 so we are making progress all the time and it's going quite positively at the moment," Sporting Director Trevor Carlin was quoted as saying by the team on the second day's practice in a press statement.
