I'll Trulli only speak English

ITALIAN Formula One driver Jarno Trulli has vowed only to speak English around his Jordan team-mates, despite being reunited with race engineer and compatriot Gabriele Delli Colli.

Trulli is determined to prevent a repeat performance of his time at Prost when there was conflict after he was accused of not sharing information.

"This year I will have an Italian engineer, Gabriele Delli Colli, who worked with me at Minardi." said Trulli, ahead of his second season at Jordan.

"I have told him we will not speak in Italian because I want to really speak English and integrate right into the team.

"I don't want there to be any problems or any ideas from other people that we are not working properly with the rest of the team."
