Edmund Patrick Jordan OBE – better known as Eddie Jordan – is still an icon of the sport of Formula One. The charismatic Irishman launched a number of competitive F1 teams that could always be considered the plucky underdog. The ones that every neutral racing fan would root for.
Jordan teams were also the launchpad to for super-stardom for the likes of Ayrton Senna, Michael Schumacher and many more.
Eddie eventually transcended his position of team boss long before he sold his last Jordan team in 2005. We now find him a regular fixture on our TV screens – either giving young drivers a very public dressing down or hosting his own show.
The man himself was at the recent 2019 Dubai International Motor Show and we got to ask him some questions about the past, present and future of F1 plus a whole lot more.
