Friday, November 07 2014

Connor Jupp posted the fastest time for Mectech Motorsport in the final test session of the day at Snetterton, but Will Palmer's time from session three remains the quickest overall.

In a cold and blustery session, which was slower due to a brief rain shower beforehand, Jupp was 0.297s faster than SWR - Caterham F1's Jordan Albert, with HHC Motorsport's Harri Newey third.

South American trio Rodrigo Fonseca,Fernando Urrutia and Enzo Bortoleto were fourth, fifth and sixth ahead of Zubair Hoque and Will Palmer, who didn't set a representative lap time. Gaetano di Mauro did not run in the session. 

In the overall classification for the day, Palmer was fastest by 0.430s from di Mauro, with Fonseca third. The majority of the best times came in the third session which was held in the driest conditions, although Jupp's time in the final session was his quickest of the day.

Palmer's time of 1m50.532s set yesterday remains the fastest of the two days of testing. 

The drivers are back in action tomorrow (Saturday) for qualifying at 9.30am ahead of the day's two races.
