Louis Deletraz topped the final day of Formula 2 post-season testing at Abu Dhabi for Carlin.
The Swiss driver had also topped the first day of testing, and he was the fastest driver over the three days.
His team-mate Nobuharu Matsushita set the early pace, but was bettered by MP Motorsport’s Anthoine Hubert and DAMS’ Nicholas Latifi as the morning session went on. In the closing minutes the order changed beneath the top two, with yesterday’s pacesetter Juan Manuel Correa, Sergio Sette Camara, Richard Verschoor, Tatiana Calderon, Jack Aitken and Leonardo Pulcini all beating Matsushita.
Deletraz was a position behind in 10th, but over a third of a second behind his team-mate.
Verschoor was the one who set the pace at the beginning of the evening session for MP, until Deletraz and Russian Time’s Luca Ghiotto started battling at the top. Deletraz came out on top, with Latifi taking third and Ghiotto’s team-mate Guan Yu Zhou fourth.
Sette Camara was fifth for DAMS, ahead of Trident’a Giuliano Alesi and Matsushita.
