Dean Stoneman ended pre-season testing ahead of the 2014 GP3 campaign with the best time in the final session at Barcelona.
The Marussia Manor Racing driver hit the top of the timing screens with just under an hour of the afternoon remaining, with a time that was nearly two seconds adrift of the quickest time of the test, set by Emil Bernstorff during the morning.
As in the morning, former GP2 driver Pal Varhaug was second for Jenzer, just 0.016s slower than Stoneman. Roman de Beer took third for Trident, with the top four completed by the second Marussia Manor driver Patrick Kujala.
Matheo Tuscher completed his return to GP3 action this week with Jenzer with the fifth best time in the afternoon, ahead of Status rookie Alfonso Celis and the third Jenzer driver Adderly Fong. Victor Carbone (Trident), Nelson Mason (Hilmer) and?Richie Stanaway (Status) completed the top ten.
20 drivers have been officially confirmed for the 2014 season so far, with six drivers who took part in this week’s test yet to have a seat secured for when the series returns to Barcelona for round one in three weeks’ time.
