Christian Lundgaard is on top of the timesheets on the opening day of Formula 2 testing in Barcelona.
Nearly a month after the opening Formula 2 race weekend of 2021, the racing action came back for the testing session at Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya. All teams and drivers were set to learn more about their cars.
The day started with fog, but then weather changed to better conditions. There were no big incidents in the afternoon session, but it was stopped three times after Jehan Daruvala, Oscar Piastri had to stop their cars, and Gianluca Petecof spun and stuck in the gravel trap.
ART GP’s Christian Lundgaard was on top in the morning session, followed by Juri Vips and Felipe Drugovich.
After a break, the action continued on the race track. Roy Nissany had an incident, which forced another red flag. Christian Lundgaard kept his strong form and stayed ahead of everyone. Felipe Drugovich, Juri Vips, Liam Lawson, and Lirim Zendeli completed the top 5.
