This morning, Dams' Kobayashi signed the quickest laptime in a 1:24.262 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 at the wheel of his Dams as he posted the quickest laptime. He was closely followed by Davide Valsecchi in a 1:24.367 ahead of the competitive Koudai Tsukakoshi on Piquet Sports today. Another impressive rookie was Charles Pic, fourth fastest on ART and ahead of his teammate for the day, and also newcomer, Nico Hulkenberg.

Shanghai feature race winner Roldan Rodriguez on the second Piquet car, Luca Filippi on Racing Engineering, Pastor Maldonado on iSport, Jerôme d'Ambrosio on the second Dams car and Diego Nunes on Campos completed the top 10.

Karun Chandhok completed 5 laps this morning before being replaced at the wheel of the FMS car by Dutch Carlo van Dam. This afternoon, Belgium Bertrand Baguette will replace Chris van der Drift on Trident.

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