Coletti very quick in Jerez

Coletti's fastest lap was the second quickest performance of the whole tests in Jerez.

The first three collective testing days of the GP Series ended today in Jerez (Spain) with Stefano Coletti showing a great shape behind the wheel of the number 18 Dallara lined up by Team Rapax.

The young Monegasque worked on the long distance as well as on the single lap performance with the squad engineers and managed to get the most out of the seven Pirelli tyre sets - five Hard (Prime) and two Medium (Prime) compounds -- available to every driver.

Coletti's fastest lap was a 1'24.418 put in on Wednesday morning that turned out to be the second quickest performance of the whole tests just 18 thousands shy of Tom Dillmann (Hilmer) quickest lap.

Despite the single lap performance, the consistency shown by Stefano Coletti was the most important result of these three testing days in Spain that therefore ended with quite a positive outcome.

Stefano Coletti: "We managed to complete quite a busy programme in which we focused on all the different situations of a racing weekend.

We sought the performance only in a few laps and when we did so laptimes came as expected, which confirmed the good feeling that the car has been giving me since Tuesday.

Our work ahead of Sepang's season opener will continue next week in Barcelona, a quite different race track from Jerez.".
