Kobayashi still quickest in Jerez  
The GP2 paddock carried on with their tests in Jerez today. In perfect track conditions – sunny, dry and fresh air – the performance of the GP2/08 car was at its best this morning, especially with Kamui Kobayashi (pictured right) at the wheel of his Dams as he posted the quickest lap time.

The weather conditions changed this afternoon in Jerez and the rain appeared twenty minutes before the end of the session. With track conditions relatively different from this morning, lap times were slower this afternoon and Kobayashi’s impressive morning lap time remains the fastest of the two-day test session.

Once again, it was the Dams driver who was the quickest this afternoon in a 1:25.071 ahead of Nico Hulkenberg who never left the Top 5 during those two days at the wheel of the ART car. Third this afternoon, Davide Valsecchi confirmed his good form on Durango. Also confirming his competitiveness, Charles Pic, on the second ART car, finished the session in fourth place and a clear three tenths ahead of the more experienced Roldan Rodriguez on Piquet.

Jérôme d’Ambrosio followed on Dams, ahead of newcomer Edoardo Mortara on Arden, Diego Nunes on Campos and Luca Filippi on Racing Engineering. Andreas Zuber completed the Top 10 at the wheel of the Super Nova car. ART Grand Prix and Dams were the only teams to place both of their cars in the Top 10 this afternoon.

This concluded the two-day test session. The teams will gather again in two weeks time in Le Castellet, France on November 11th and 12th for the last test session of the year.
