Jérôme d’Ambrosio tops second day at Barcelona  Dams racer sets fastest laptime during morning session History  taught  us  the  best  window  to  set  the  fastest  laptime  at  the  Spaniard  track  is  during  the morning session. In the second day of the last pre-season tests, this theory was again verified with Jérôme  d’Ambrosio  claiming  the  top  spot  ahead  of  newcomer  Christian  Vietoris  and  Pastor Maldonado in the first half of the day. The morning session though was red flagged seven times starting with Jules Bianchi who span at turn 4 nine minutes after the pitlane opened. It was then Adrian Zaugg’s turn to halt the session. Coloni’s Vladimir Arabadzhiev span at turn 7 on the two hour mark followed twenty minutes later by Dani Clos who stopped his Racing Engineering car near turn 5. Rodolfo Gonzalez lost control of his Arden machine at Turn 6 on the one hour mark. Six minutes later, it was Giacomo Ricci who span at Turn 5 and the last red flag was courtesy of Max Chilton who stopped at Turn 4. Amidst all this, d’Ambrosio managed to climb on top of the timesheet in a 1:27.182 closely followed by Vietoris and Maldonado.

In  fourth,  Fabio  Leimer  at  Ocean  followed by  Bianchi,  Sam  Bird  and  Clos.

Luiz  Razia finished in eighth place ahead of Ricci and Charles Pic. Things  went  smoother  in  the  afternoon  expect  for  Marcus  Ericsson  who  hit  the  barriers  at  the chicane before the last corner and had to sit through the rest of the session. Leimer took the lead early in the session and kept it until the ten minute mark when d’Ambrosio improved his laptime by one tenth, but soon enough, it was Maldonado who claimed top spot lapping the Spanish track just four  hundredths  faster  than  the  Belgian.

Leimer  confirmed  his  strong  form  finishing  third  fastest ahead of Sergio Perez at Addax, Vietoris, Razia, Davide Valsecchi, Pic, Clos and Oliver Turvey on the second iSport car. The session will start again tomorrow at 9am, local time.
