Palmer fastest in Singapore practice
20 September 2013 – Jolyon Palmer set the standard during Friday's GP2 practice session in Singapore. The Carlin driver, who began the previous Monza weekend in the same manner, clocked a 1:55.912 to outpace current title leader Fabio Leimer by 0.253 seconds.
With just half an hour to get up to speed at one of the most demanding circuits of the season, the entire field embarked upon early runs, with plenty of drivers taking turns at the top. But as the session wore on, it was Palmer who comfortably moved ahead.
Marcus Ericsson and Alexander Rossi placed third and fourth behind Leimer, who holds a six-point advantage ahead of qualifying. GP2 rookie Mitch Evans followed in fifth position, with fellow Britons James Calado and Sam Bird in close company.
Felipe Nasr, Johnny Cecotto Jr. and Stéphane Richelmi rounded out the top ten.
GP2 qualifying in Singapore gets underway at 8pm local time (GMT +8)
