Abu Dhabi GP2 Final - Practice times

Lotus ART's Esteban Gutierrez topped the Friday practice session timesheets ahead of the GP2 Final non-championship event at the Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi.
Esteban Gutierrez demonstrated by Lotus ART had made such an early decision to sign him for 2012, by going to the top of the timesheets early in the 45 minute Friday free practice session opening this weekend's programme of events for the one-off GP2 Final.

Alexander Rossi and Stefano Coletti both reported technical problems, while Julian Leal brought out yellow flags after spinning off in turn 19.
