Lynn keeps DAMS on top in Day Two of GP2 testing

Alex Lynn kept DAMS at the top of the timesheets on the second day of GP2’s opening pre-season test in Abu Dhabi.

The reigning GP3 champion was already the fastest driver of the morning before recording his 1m49.648s shortly before the break on Pirelli’s super-soft rubber.

Team-mate, and day one pacesetter, Pierre Gasly was second, having also set his time on the super-softs.

Ferrari and McLaren juniors, Raffaele Marciello and Stoffel Vandoorne logged identical times, with Marciello classified third by virtue of turning his lap earlier, while Mitch Evans and Alexander Rossi completed the top six.

Lynn was only 18th in the afternoon, but his morning effort remained the best of the day.

Norman Nato caused a red flag with an hour remaining when he stopped at Turn 20 while leading the times, but was able to rejoin for a super-soft run in the final 20 minutes and top the second session.

His 1m49.697s was 1.244 seconds faster than Arden team-mate Andre Negrao managed amid a late flurry of improvements, while Marciello was third again and Vandoorne sixth.
