Pastor Maldonado still leads the way
Pastor  Maldonado  was  again  quickest  for  the  second  day  of  GP2  Series  collective  tests  in  le Castellet.

On a 2A configuration track, the Venezuelan clocked in a best lap time of 1:09.769, one tenth quicker than Dani Clos who led the field most of the day.

The trouble-free morning session started under clear blue skies and saw sophomore Dani Clos at Racing Engineering shine and top the timesheets in a 1:10.288 ahead of yesterday’s quicker man Maldonado  while  rookies  Jules  Bianchi  and  Sam  Bird  confirmed  ART’s  good  form  finishing respectively  third  and  fourth.

Christian  Vietoris  placed  the  second  Racing  Engineering  car  in  the Top five, four hundredths faster than Arden’s Charles Pic.

Temperatures dropped slightly at the beginning of the afternoon session.

With twenty minutes left on  the  clock,  Maldonado  bettered  Clos’  morning  time  by  half  a  second  while  the  Spaniard  also improved his personal best, but not enough to claim quickest of the day.

They were the only two drivers able to lap the French track in less than 1m10s.

Already in the Top ten this morning, Super Nova’s rookie Josef Kral finished with the third best performance of the day ahead of iSport’s Oliver Turvey and GP2 returnee Ho-Pin Tung at Dams.

The French squad put both their cars in the top ten along with Rapax, iSport, and ART.

Marcus Ericsson lost control of his Super Nova car at the pit exit at the beginning of the afternoon session and could not complete any lap.

The three-day test session will conclude tomorrow.
