Gunther topped the times on the first morning of pre-season testing Tuesday.

Gunther's best time – a 1m15.926s set on his final lap of the morning session – was 1.051 seconds quicker than the fastest time from last year's pre-season test, a 1m16.977s posted by his BMW predecessor Antonio Felix da Costa because of a reconfiguration of the chicane.
