Bratt rounds off successful week testing at Paul Ricard

1 Mins read

GP2 rookie Will Bratt topped off this week’s test outing at Paul Ricard in France with a great run today, finishing the day forth quickest.

The session marked the last time the GP2 cars will run on track this year with the GP2 Asia series resuming in early February.

Completing nearly 200 laps over the course of the three-day official test sessions Bratt ran with the front-runners throughout most of the session.

“I'm pretty happy with how the Paul Ricard test has gone for us” said Bratt

Unfortunately for the British driver he was unable to piece together his fastest sector times in to one lap, but still impressed everyone with his pace.

“It's just a shame we weren't able to hook the sectors up today as we should have been faster. Finishing in the top five this morning and fourth this afternoon is great but it could have been better still. Even so, we've made very good progress and it's been a fantastic way to end a phenomenal year.”

It’s been a a memorable year for Bratt, having completed his degree in History from Oxford University, and securing multiple race wins and championship victory in Euroseries 3000.

The GP2 Asia Series resumes at the Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi on Friday, 5th February, and Saturday, 6th February 2010.
