Valsecchi sets the pace

On a wet and slippery track, the Durango driver signed the quickest laptime of the morning session.

The fog replaced the rain this morning for the last day of GP2 testing in 2008. The session was interrupted by many red flags as the French circuit remained wet all morning and a number of cars spun off the slippery track. Davide Valsecchi once again set the pace in a 1:27.826 ahead of GP2 Asia Series' leader Roldan Rodriguez at Piquet.

They were followed by the always quick Kamui Kobayashi, rookie Dani Clos at Racing Engineering, Vitaly Petrov at Campos, Jerome d'Ambrosio on the second Dams car, Alvaro Parente at Arden, and rookies Nico Hulkenberg at ART and Koudai Tsukakoshi on the other Campos car. Italian Fabio Crestani at the wheel of the DPR car completed the Top 10.

Even though laptimes have not been impressive this morning, the teams still gathered valuable data thanks to the GP2/08 car's excellent reliability.

The afternoon session will start at 1pm local time and will stop at 4pm.
