Caterham Racing's Alexander Rossi topped the timesheets at a predominantly wet Circuit de Catalunya on Wednesday, delivering a personal best effort of 1:31.173 in the drier afternoon session. The American led Adrian Quaife-Hobbs by 0.379 seconds, with Holland's Nigel Melker completing the top three runners.
Heavy downpours made life difficult for the field as testing action resumed at 9am local time, with exploratory opening laps on the full wet tyres necessary. When the drivers found a rhythm amid the rainfall, it was Facundo Regalia who rose to the top of the order, posting a time of 1:51.799 before the customary lunch break.
As the sun came out, so did the slick tyres. Added to brief red flag periods in the morning for Rene Binder and Sergei Sirotkin's respective spins, the afternoon saw incidents for Pål Varhaug, Arthur Pic, Daniel Juncadella and Lucas Foresti. Around all of this drama, Rossi was able to find a gap and deliver his pace-setting time.
Simon Trummer was best of the rest behind the quickest three men on the timing screens, while Daniel Abt impressed to claim fifth on his second day of GP2 testing. Rapax driver Stefano Coletti was next up in sixth, with Rio Haryanto, Sergio Canamasas, the aforementioned Juncadella and Kevin Giovesi in close company.
