Valsecchi sets the pace in Jerez

The Durango driver signed the quickest laptime this morning in Jerez in a 1:24.823

This morning in Jerez, the GP2 Series paddock started a two-day winter test session. A dried resurfaced track combined with the GP2/08 car performance improved last year's fastest laptime by almost 3 seconds. Italian Davide Valsecchi set the pace on Durango ahead of newcomer Nico Hulkenberg at the wheel of ART. The German's teammate, Pastor Maldonado, followed in a 1:25.025 while rookie Koudai Tsukakoshi placed his Piquet Sports in front of countryman Kamui Kobayashi on Dams.

Tsukakoshi's teammate, Diego Nunes, closely followed ahead of iSport's Giedo Van der Garde, FMS' Karun Chandhok and newcomer Charles Pic at the wheel of the second iSport car. Andreas Zuber completed the Top 10 with Racing Engineering.

The session will resume today at 2pm, local time.
