Filippi tops free practice at Abu Dhabi

Italiaracing has been kind enough to post the times from the free practice today at AD.  Live timing was down at the GP2 site.. let’s hope it works for qualifying.

1 – Luca Filippi – Meritus – 1’54″146 – 11
2 – Davide Valsecchi – iSport – 1’54″431 – 10
3 – Sam Bird – ART – 1’54″775 – 10
4 – Charles Pic – Arden – 1’54″803 – 14
5 – Sergio Perez – Addax – 1’54″824 – 14
6 – Fabio Leimer – Ocean – 1’54″904 – 14
7 – Jules Bianchi – ART – 1’54″971 – 14
8 – Alexander Rossi – Meritus – 1’55″077 – 12
9 – Giedo Van Der Garde – Addax – 1’55″102 – 12
10 – Giacomo Ricci – DPR – 1’55″107 – 14
11 – Edoardo Piscopo – Dams – 1’55″172 – 12
12 – Josef Kral – Super Nova – 1’55″222 – 14
13 – Javier Villa – Arden – 1’55″347 – 14
14 – Oliver Turvey – iSport – 1’55″481 – 8
15 – Christian Vietoris – Dams – 1’55″563 – 14
16 – Michael Herck – DPR – 1’55″821 – 13
17 – Marcus Ericsson – Super Nova – 1’55″971 – 13
18 – Dani Clos – Trident – 1’56″295 – 14
19 – Max Chilton – Ocean – 1’56″308 – 15
20 – Vlaimir Arabadzhiev – Rapax – 1’56″330 – 15
21 – Daniel Zampieri – Rapax – 1’56″646 – 14
22 – Will Bratt – Coloni – 1’56″659 – 10
23 – Plamen Kralev – Trident – 1’59″971 – 5
24 – Alberto Valerio – Coloni – s.t. – 1

The Italians 1-2 in a session dominated by the Meritus and iSport drivers. Great result from Sam Bird, looking to make up for a fast but troubled initial showing at Abu Dhabi last November.  The top 10 drivers in the same second, closing out 10th place with a surprising Giacomo Ricci.

Big crash early in the session for Valerio, reason why so few laps were done in the 30 minute session.  Bianchi up in 7th place for his first free practice in a GP2 weekend.  Surprising to see Ericsson at 17, Vietoris at 15 and Villa 13.

    I hope that Ericsson hade some kind of fault on his car, Very dissapointed as a swede with the performance in the GP2 asia.

    in fairness he hasn’t been fast in the older cars, it was the new one he was fast in so it might change for the main series
