Filippi ran in only one session before leaving the wheel to 18-year-old Riccardo Agostini, the 2012 Italian Formula 3 Champion. Based in Padua, Agostini set the third fastest laptime of the day before being demoted for not respecting the track limits, although he retained a record in the third split.
Scuderia Coloni also provided a chance to impress on a GP2 Series car to another promising Italian racer, Eddie Cheever. The 19-year-old Roman, who was the runner-up in the Italian F.3 Championship, left a strong impression on Day 2 despite the tough and rainy weather conditions at the Catalunya venue. The team also fielded Daniel De Jong for the whole test. The Dutchman, coming from the AutoGP ranks, ended up with the second fastest laptime behind Filippi in the first session before topping the field in the afternoon in 1’30”408.
"The great laptimes set at Barcelona with Daniel De Jong also highlighted our cars' performance. He was extremely fast in dry and wet weather conditions. In addition to that, we also brought on-track two guys coming from the Italian F.3 Series, Agostini and Cheever. Once again, Scuderia Coloni offered to two talented Italians a true opportunity to continue their motorsports career by lining-up for the first time on a demanding car like the GP2 Series one".
