Pietro Fittipaldi ended the second Collective Test Session at the Nurburgring with the fastest time, with the current World Series Formula V8 3.5 championship leader 0.311 seconds clear of Alex Palou.

Fittipaldi, who has four wins and eight pole positions in the opening ten races of 2017, was the only driver to dip beneath 1:42s in the afternoon session, with the Lotus driver setting a best time of 1:41.930s.

Palou, who is racing this weekend for Teo Martin Motorsport in place of the absent Nelson Mason, ended up with a best of 1:42.241s to finish second for the second time in the day, and he did enough to deny Lotus a 1-2 return, with Rene Binder just 0.006 seconds behind the Spaniard.

Alfonso Celis Jr finished the session fourth for Fortec Motorsports, just ahead of team-mate Diego Menchaca, with the Mexican unable to match his P1 from the morning session despite being significantly faster in the afternoon session.

Roy Nissany was the leading of the RP Motorsport trio this time around in sixth, with team-mates Damiano Fioravanti and Yu Kanamaru ending up tenth and eleventh, with a trio of Russian drivers separating them.

Egor Orudzhev ended the session seventh for SMP Racing by AVF, with team-mate Matevos Isaakyan ninth, either side of Teo Martin Motorsport’s Konstantin Tereschenko.
