Alex Lynn enjoyed a spin driving a GP2 development car in an exclusive practice session at the Sakhir International Circuit, testing the new DRS package.

The introduction of the Drag Reduction System in GP2 will see the feeder series move more in line with Formula 1 in 2015. GP3 champion Lynn, who was recently announced as Williams F1 test driver, spent the day aero-testing the new DRS and working on its reliability in straight-line speed runs as well as longer stints.

The 21-year-old will continue the test tomorrow morning and says it has been a great experience as he gears up for his rookie season in GP2 with the DAMS team.

Lynn was selected for the exclusive test as a reward for winning the GP3 championship last season.

"I have really enjoyed driving the GP2 development car today," Lynn said. "It has been a very studious test session so far. I am grateful for this prize and opportunity. I would like to thank the series and I hope that my feedback will be a benefit to all of the GP2 teams regarding the newly added DRS."
