GP3 Series champion Alex Lynn underlined his GP2 Series title credentials by setting the pace on day two of pre-season testing in Abu Dhabi this week.

The 21-year old Briton, who was signed by the Williams F1 team as its official development driver on the back of his 2014 success, lapped the 5.554-kilometre Yas Marina Circuit in a time of 1min 49.6secs to set the fastest time of day two, before improving to a 1min 48.9secs time - without claiming P1 - on the last day.

"The test was a great opportunity to get used to the GP2 car and work with the team ahead of the first race in Bahrain in April," said Lynn, who used supersoft Pirelli tyres to set his fastest lap, "It was a successful three days and I can't wait to put into practice what I learned in Abu Dhabi during the 2015 season."

The Abu Dhabi test gave Lynn his second experience of driving in GP2 this year, following a session in the GP2 development car in Bahrain last month. Across the three days of testing, he had the opportunity to familiarise himself with the car and put it through its paces with the new F1-inspired Drag Reduction System (DRS).

Lynn's GP2 bid begins at Sakhir in Bahrain over 17-19 April but, before then, he will undertake three more days of testing at the BIC venue at the start of next month.
