Dutchman still quickest at Jerez on Day 2 morning session

Nyck de Vries has topped again the timesheet on Day 2 morning session of the 2019 FIA Formula 2 pre-season testing at Jerez de la Frontera, Spain. The Dutchman set a latpime of 1:24.723 in the opening hour to head UNI Virtuosi’s pair Luca Ghiotto and Guanyu Zhou at the chequered flag.

The session opened under blue skies with Trident’s Giuliano Alesi feeding onto the track first closely followed by Antonio Fuoco who replaced Ralph Boschung at the wheel of the second Trident car. De Vries set the early pace with a laptime two tenths quickest than Louis Delétraz in P2.

The ART Grand Prix driver went even quicker on his next lap to break the 1m25s with a time of  1:24.723. Ghiotto also improved but ended with a time half a second slower than de Vries’. Sérgio Sette Camâra dipped under 1m25s as well to move up into second as Richard Verschoor was the first man to be seen going out on track on Soft Pirelli tyres.

On the one hour mark, the top 3 was made of de Vries, Ghiotto and Mick Schumacher, but the latter lost a position to Delétraz as more red tyre compounds were spotted on track. Zhou was also able to improve on his personal best to feature in third.

Halfway through the session, the proceedings were halted for a quick track inspection. The running was restarted fifteen minutes later, but stopped again after ten minutes when Nicholas Latifi brought out the second red flag of the morning after going off track at Turn 8.

The remaining of the morning was trouble-free with the drivers focusing on long runs. Five minutes before the end of the session, Ghiotto went wide at Turn 8 and lightly touched the barrier. A third and final red flag was waved. The cars returned to the pits and the pitlane remained closed until the chequered flag.

Behind de Vries, Ghiotto and Zhou, Delétraz took fourth ahead of Schumacher, Latifi, Sette Camâra, Calum Ilott, Juan Manuel Correa and Verschoor. The action will resume at 14.00 local time.
