DAMS one-two in final winter GP3 test with Jorg and Hughes

DAMS driver Kevin Jorg set the fastest time on the final day of GP3 pre-season testing at Barcelona on Thursday

DAMS one-two in final winter GP3 test with Jorg and Hughes

Jorg beat team-mate Jake Hughes by a tenth of a second to top the timesheets, ahead of Ferrari Driver Academy driver Antonio Fuoco's Trident entry.

The dry afternoon session was a complete contrast to what proved to be a washout of a morning session.

Every driver ventured on track in the afternoon, compared to just 13 in the morning amid the heavy rain.

Charles Leclerc ended the morning session fastest, setting the only time in the 1m57s bracket.

Jorg, Konstantin Tereshchenko, Alexander Albon and Jack Aitken completed the top five.

There were also a number of red flag periods, caused by Oscar Tunjo, Nyck de Vries and Jake Hughes going off track.

The afternoon session ran completely uninterrupted and Jorg went fastest with a time of 1m35.538s.

Hughes was second, followed by Fuoco.

Alex Palou was fourth fastest with Leclerc finishing fifth in the afternoon.

Wednesday's fastest driver, Tunjo, was 10th.
