GP2 Spain 2013: Friday practice times

10 May 2013

Carlin's Felipe Nasr set the early pace in Barcelona with a best time on Friday morning of 1:30.103s on the 4.655-km (2.892-mile) Circuit de Catalunya just outside Barcelona, Spain.

He was a full three quarters of a second faster than James Calado in the new-livery ART. Johnny Cecotto Jr. narrowly edged Nasr's team mate Jolyon Palmer for third spot.

Although the drivers had some lock-up fun exploring the limits of what they can achieve it was a relatively quiet session which remained dry throughout, the track having dried off during the preceding F1 Free Practice 1 session. Even so, Simon Trummer managed to spin his Rapax backwards through an advertising hoarding in the final section midway through the 30-minute session.

Daniël de Jong was also forced to park trackside when his MP Motorsport ground to a half on its out lap at the start of the session.
