Jazeman Jaafar finished the first morning test of the week atop the time sheets.
The PETRONAS Talent Programme driver, who will contest his third championship this year, put his experience to good use. He was closely followed by Will Stevens in his Strakka Racing model.
The sunny conditions in Jerez ensured there was little drama during the morning test. Matthieu Vaxiviere was the highest placed rookie in fourth, two hundredths-of-a-second behind Stevens' team mate, Matias Laine. The Lotus junior steps up from Formula Renault 2.0 Eurocup this year to partner Marlon Stockinger at Lotus.
Norman Nato and Nigel Melker were on good form, outpacing Sergey Sirotkin, Pierre Gasly, Marlon Stockinger and his team mate, Marco Sorensen.
Nikolay Martsenko, in the only running Comtec, finished just outside the top ten to sit eleventh. Once again, Carlin were absent from the pre-season test.
This is the first time World Series by Renault testing has taken place in Jerez since 2010.
