This will be a popular model, as next to Ferrari, Jordan is seen by many Formula 1 followers as the 'Team of the People'. In 1999 the Jordan team had finished third in the constructor's title race. The future looked bright, but their arrangement to use works Honda units, promised to BAR, was not the materialise until this year. This saw the team slip to sixth place in the constructor's race. The model carries racing number 6 and new team signing Jarno Trulli is the driver. Trulli's best result last season was a fourth place in Brazil, while Frentzen, whose car is also available, was on the podium twice in third place. 2000 sponsorship is from Deutsche Telekom, as well  the striking 'Buzzin Hornets' livery, carried in non-smoking French and British races.
All of the models include driver figures wearing their race helmets in correct colours, even Micheal Schumacher, who changed his helmet colours for the 2000 season. There is working steering and opening fuel fi;;er flaps on each side of the driver's cockpit.
The tyres carry the grooves specified by the 2000 regulations. Each carries the Bridestone 'Potenza' white branding markings accurately on every sidewall. In 2001 Michelin return to the fray. --Model Collector  See more
