Jordan to combine roles of director, manager

6/9/2005

MONTREAL -- Briton Trevor Carlin has stood
down as Jordan sporting director, the struggling Formula One
team said on Thursday.

Jordan said in a statement at the Canadian Grand Prix that
Adrian Burgess, 36, will combine Carlin's job with his current
role of sporting manager.

Jordan team boss Colin Kolles acknowledged that Carlin's
departure "does create a void" but the Briton would retain an
advisory role with the team owned by Russian-born Canadian
billionaire Alex Shnaider.

Shnaider plans to rename the team Midland next year.

Jordan, with Indian rookie Narain Karthikeyan and Portugal's
Tiago Monteiro, have yet to score a point in seven races so far
this year and there has been speculation about the team's
future.
