Oliver Rowland topped the Tuesday morning time sheets, leading a Fortec Motorsports 1-2 in Jerez.

Rowland's 1:29.396 could not be surpassed by his more experienced team mate, Sergey Siroktin who was a close second to the Formula Renault 3.5 rookie.

Pierre Gasly set much of the early pace but settled for third fastest at the close of the morning session. The Red Bull junior appears to be making an effortless step up from Formula Renault 2.0 Eurocup to post consistent lap times in his Arden Motorsport model.

Jazeman Jaafar, who was fastest during Monday's testing, sat fourth and was challenged throughout the morning by Carlos Sainz Jr. Pietro Fantin looked to be back on form at the helm of International Draco Racing's 2014 challenger to sit sixth fastest.

Norman Nato, Marlon Stockinger, Nikolay Martsenko and Nigel Melker completed a familiar top ten.

Matthieu Vaxiviere's Lotus model stopped on track, moments before the end of the session– the Frenchman finished down in sixteenth place.

The benchmark has been set by Fortec Motorsports as the afternoon session gets under-way in Jerez.
