Irish flag?[edit]

Not sure if this is the right way to report this, but the Irish flag next to the Jordan-Honda entry in the Constructor's points table at the end looks like a mistake. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:26, 22 April 2011 (UTC)

This is the right place to ask this. Eddie Jordan, the team's founding owner, is from Bray on the eastern coast in the Republic. Despite the team being based within the bounds of the Silverstone Circuit, Jordan also strongly identified team with his Irish background, and had the team registered through the Irish sanctioning body, thus establiishing the team's nationality. The teams original 1991 livery was in Irish national colours. But as witgh other British based teams over the years like Renault and Force India it is where ownership of the team is registerred that governs nationality in Formula One. --Falcadore (talk) 01:04, 23 April 2011 (UTC)
