Antonio Fuoco stays on top in GP3 testing at Estoril

The times set in the morning session were marginally quicker, with Trident driver Fuoco fastest from Jake Dennis of Arden.

Alexander Albon continued his strong form in third for the ART Grand Prix team, three tenths of a second slower than Dennis.

Fuoco was a victim of technical gremlins towards the end of the morning's running, causing a red flag.

Trident's Artur Janosz suffered similarly with technical issues, but fared better in the afternoon's running, finishing only two tenths shy of his pacesetting Trident team-mate Fuoco.

Alex Palou also gave Campos something to smile about by finishing in the top three.

Sandy Stuvik ended the session fourth fastest but caused an initial red flag, again attributed to technical maladies.

Others to cause stoppages during the day included Konstantin Tereshchenko and newcomer Hongli Ye with crashes and Kevin Jorg and Matt Parry with mechanical problems.
