ALEXANDRE PREMAT SECOND DAY CASTELLET

Lopez finished this morning's test session as the quickest driver in the GP2 series. His lap of 1:12.547 has set the new standard for 2006-spec GP2 series cars at the track, beating the former record of 1:12.838 held by Lewis Hamilton on the 3.853km "3D" track solution.

The Argentine set his lap mid-way through the session at a colder than expected Circuit Paul Ricard. With temperatures hitting a high of 13 degrees, Lopez's lap was one of four to dip ino the 1:12s this morning. He was joined in the bracket by ART Grand Prix's Alex Premat, Dams driver Franck Perera and Nelson Piquet Jr in his Piquet Sports entry.

Franck Perera was the busiest man on track this morning, running a total of 48 laps. Jason Tahinci (FMS International) and Felix Porteiro (Campos Racing) both completed 47 laps each.

Testing continues this afternoon at 14:00 for the drivers to run the final three hours in which to set their mark on the GP2 series records before we leave Circuit Paul Ricard until our mid-season test.
