Gary Anderson looks back on Jordan’s successful 1997 season in the latest edition of his podcast, available free to subscribe to via all good podcast suppliers.
Jordan’s breakthrough victory came a year later, but the Jordan-Peugeot 197 laid the foundations for that success the year before.
Anderson looks back at the weekends when Jordan was potentially in a position to get that breakthrough win, and suggests that had Rubens Barrichello remained at the team that victory might well have been delivered.
He also delves into the strengths and weaknesses of Jordan’s inexperienced line-up of Giancarlo Fisichella and Ralf Schumacher, who took three podium finishes but also cost the team a shot at victory in Argentina by colliding.
Anderson also explains why he wanted to continue with the Peugeot engine in 1998 given the work done to build up the partnership from 1995 onwards.
