F2 championship leader Luciano Bacheta tops pre-race test at Spa-Francorchamps

Luciano Bacheta F2Formula 2 championship leader Luciano Bacheta was the quickest man in the series' pre-race test at Spa-Francorchamps on Tuesday.

Bacheta set a 2m07.463s benchmark in the second of the five sessions held during the day, edging out Alex Fontana by just 0.076 seconds. Matheo Tuscher completed the top three.

Christopher Zanella had led the way in the opening session, which was the only other one to yield fully dry running.

Only four drivers ran in session three, as conditions were neither dry nor fully wet, while Mihai Marinescu set the pace in session four, by which time the track was so wet that times were 23s off Bacheta's morning benchmark.

Conditions improved for session five, when overboost use was permitted, but it was red-flagged due to a crash by Plamen Kralev just as drivers started trying slicks. The other major incident of the day was an accident for Max Snegirev at Fagnes in session four.
