Turkey - Practice times

6 May 2011

Rain continued to play a major part in the GP2 free practice session at Istanbul Park in Turkey, with Christian Vietoris and Romain Grosjean setting late fast laptimes to bump Giedo van der Garde off the top spot.

Lotus ART's Jules Bianchi survived a scare through turn 9 that saw him lightly clip the barrier. Moments earlier his team mate Esteban Gutierrez had suffered a more serious accident at the same spot and put the car into the inside barrier in a copycat accident to that suffered by Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel in the earlier F1 first free practice.

Session report also available.
