Marcus Ericsson finished the second and final day of GP2 testing at Silverstone as the fastest man, leading the way from Christian Vietoris who had topped the timesheets during the morning session. Frenchman Jules Bianchi rounded out the top three runners for Lotus ART, completing 72 laps of the 5.901-km (3.667-mi) circuit.
A dry track surface on Wednesday morning meant that slick tyres made a welcome return, with both the morning and afternoon session filled with plenty of on-track action due to the improved weather. Dani Clos ended the day in fourth just over two tenths behind Bianchi, while Addax’s Charles Pic followed just 0.024 seconds behind.
Romain Grosjean’s best effort put him in sixth place, but the reigning GP2 Asia Series Champion had an off at 3pm local time (BST) and caused damage to his DAMS machinery. Mexico’s Esteban Gutierrez was next up, just ahead of Sam Bird who was unable to match the pace of his pace-setting iSport International team-mate.
Giedo van der Garde occupied ninth place, while Oliver Turvey edged out fellow Briton Jolyon Palmer for the last spot inside the top ten. Just 1.133 seconds separated Turvey and the bottom of the timing screens as the afternoon session came to an end, with Fairuz Fauzy bringing up the rear for Super Nova International.
The second and final pre-season test will be staged at Barcelona from April 19-20
