"I very much hope to get a good result in my last race for the team. I have had a very happy two years with Jordan. They have given me a great start to my F1 career, and I would like to leave on a high note."

Свободные заезды (пятница):
"Second place looks really good but I think it is unrealistic to think we can hold onto this tomorrow. Having said that, perhaps with the support we will get from the new Mugen-Honda qualifying engine it is possible. In any case, we should perform well. The balance of the car is very good, but we will try and find even more improvements for tomorrow. It certainly helps that I know the circuit very well from my days racing here in Formula Nippon. Although racing an F1 car around this circuit is very different, I feel quite at home on the track."

Квалификация (суббота):
"We always knew it would be very tough to beat McLaren and Ferrari but it is disappointing to have been beaten by Williams today. Seventh place is not what we had hoped for, but I ran right at the limit and could not make any improvement on my time. It is good that Benetton is behind us, but we need to win points to improve our Championship standing, so we will be working hard tonight on race strategy."

Гонка (воскресение):
"This was a disappointing way for me to end my season and two years with Jordan. I would have loved to have won more points for the team, but it was not my lucky day. In fact it was not a lucky day for the Schumachers. The two re-starts meant the oil temperature in my car became very high and we were unable to do anything about it which meant that eventually the engine failed. I am very sorry for Michael. He came up so quickly behind me that it was normal for me to let him through, but sadly his race came to nothing as well. I would like to thank everyone at Jordan for a great two years and an excellent 1998 season - or at least the second half of it. Eddie and I had a quiet chat at the end of the race and it was really quite emotional."
