He's been nicknamed 'The Bard of Bray'. And why not, some of Eddie Jordan's comments on the BBC have been almost lyrical, especially when he's enjoyed a bit of hospitality before a race. Here are some of EJ's best quotes from the 2013 season.

Eddie Jordan on Lewis: "Lewis has released the team into a new zone."

Eddie Jordan on Jenson: "He was the epitome of the perfect guy and he still is."

Eddie Jordan on Niki Lauda: "He is speaking like a pope."
(Although we're pretty sure the Pope doesn't use the word 'shit' quite so much.)
