The Jordan EJ10, and an updated version, the EJ10B, was the car with which the Jordan team competed in the 2000 Formula One season. The chassis number was changed from its traditional format of, say, Jordan 199 for 1999, to EJ10 to celebrate the team's tenth season in Formula One under Eddie Jordan.
Despite a budget increase following the benefits of finishing third in the 1999 Constructors' Championship, the car proved disappointingly unreliable, only finishing 15 times out of a possible 34. The team was also unable to compete with Ferrari and McLaren as it had done the previous year, and, in the end, lost out to Williams, Benetton and BAR as well, finishing sixth overall in the Constructors' Championship. The high points were Heinz-Harald Frentzen's two podiums at Interlagos and Indianapolis, and three front-row starting positions.
During the course of the season, the team announced a works Honda engine deal for 2001, putting it in direct competition with BAR. The car's designer, Mike Gascoyne, was also placed on gardening leave during the season after he expressed a desire to join Benetton the following year.
Eddie Jordan later marketed a drink called EJ-10.
