Perera tops Barcelona test

Franck Perera has finished the third pre-season test of the 2006 GP2 series with the fastest overall laptime. The French Dams driver posted his time early on the morning of the second day of running to push iSport International's Ernesto Viso into second position, with Lewis Hamilton third for ART Grand Prix.

Lewis' team-mate Alex Premat finished the test with the fourth fastest time, with Nicolas Lapierre fifth for Arden International. Viso's team-mate Tristan Gommendy finished the session just behind Lapierre in sixth position. Seventh and eighth fastest were the Piquet Sports entries of Nelson Piquet Jr and Alexandre Negrao, while Adrian Valles drove a promising two days for Campos Racing to land the ninth fastest time, just ahead of Super Nova International's Jose Maria Lopez.

The GP2 series now moves straight on to Valencia for the final pre-season test of 2006. The teams will arrive at Circuit Ricardo Tormo later this week, ready for the two-day test which begins on March 5th. With the GP2 series 2006 season launch taking place on the evening of April 7th, the action begins in earnest the very next day as the first race weekend of the 2006 season kicks off on April 8-9 in Valencia.
