Louis Deletraz made it two out of two after ending the second Collective Test on top at Motorland Aragon on Friday on the opening day of the Formula V8 3.5 season.
The Swiss ace set a time of 1m41.183s in the #1 Fortec Motorsports entry to end the fifty-minute session 0.246s clear of Arden Motorsport’s Russian driver Egor Orudzhev.
Roy Nissany was third quickest for Lotus despite having one of his quick lap times deleted due to track limits, while Yu Kanamaru of Teo Martin Motorsport ended up fourth, the leading driver of any of the four new-to-the-championship teams.
Aurélien Panis made it two Arden drivers inside the top five with the fifth fastest time, with the second Lotus of Austrian Rene Binder sixth, just ahead of the second Teo Martin Motorsport entry of Beitske Visser.
Pietro Fittipaldi, the grandson on two-time Formula 1 World Champion Emerson, was eighth quickest in the second of the Fortec Motorsports entries, with AVF duo Alfonso Celis Jr and Tom Dillmann completing the top ten.
Outside the top ten were both the SMP Racing entries, Matevos Isaakyan ahead of Matthieu Vaxiviere, both RP Motorsport entries of Johnny Cecotto Jr and Vitor Baptista, and the Durango Racing Team entry of gentleman driver Giuseppe Cipriani, who was almost six seconds off the pace.
