Yas Marina GP2 test times - February 7

Times and track conditions from the fourth and final day of the GP2 2011 pre-season testing held at the Yas Marina circuit in Abu Dhabi.
The fourth and final day of GP2 Asia Series pre-season testing was held on Monday, February 7 at Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi.

Conditions were once again blue skies and sunshine, allowing the drivers to get straight up to speed from the start of the morning session. Indeed, the fastest time of the entire pre-season test was recorded in the morning, with Lotus ART's Jules Bianchi the only driver to complete a lap in under 1:36. In the afternoon, teams instead mainly focused again on completing race simulations rather than fastest laps.

The teams were once again using the shorter 4.730km track configuration, which is how the track will be used for the first GP2 Asia series race weekend later this week.

This was the final test outing before the season gets underway. GP2 Asia's first race weekend starts with qualifying on Thursday at 1.25pm GMT and the first feature race of the series on Friday, February 11 at 12.55pm GMT.
