Test Times Tight at the Top Lucas di Grassi and reigning champions ART Grand Prix may have finished the final day of the first GP2 series test at the top of the timesheets, but the real story here at Circuit Paul Ricard was how incredibly close things are shaping up to be for what is already a highly anticipated season.

Lucas' top time of 1:09.768 around the 4.087km "2A" track solution in use today was just 0.079 seconds faster than Andreas Zuber's best for iSport International, as Lucas' team-mate Michael Ammermuller came home third, with Andreas' team-mate Timo Glock fourth.

Today's running saw the top 20 drivers covered by a single second. This figure reflects a simply astonishing feat when one considers that the first chance anyone had to run the 2007-spec cars in anger, was just yesterday morning.
