It was the 10th season of Eddie Jordan’s team in Formula 1. To celebrate this, the format of chassis numbering was changed from traditional calendar year index (such as 199 in 1999) to team owner’s initials and consecutive year number. In technical terms EJ10 was the further evolution of 199 developed by Mike Gascoyne. But unlike the very successful car of the 1999 season EJ10 was very unreliable retiring 15 times out of 34 starts. Team leader Heinz-Harald Frentzen, who was considered as one of the contender for the title before the season, was able to score only two 3rd places in Brazil and USA as his best finishes. Jarno Trulli who moved to Jordan from Prost Peugeot scored 6 points ranked 10th in the Driver’s standings.
