Hamilton Fastest in Pau Practice

Lewis Hamilton finished top of free practice after the second session for the F3 Euroseries at Pau

Hamilton Fastest in Pau Practice

The ASM driver finished ahead of Signature's Loic Duval and Manor Motorsport's Lucas di Grassi.

Hamilton's pace was no fluke, the Brit consistently setting fastest times around the French street-track.

"We started the day with just a basic set-up but it seems our efforts to develop a good one have been successful," Hamilton said. "This offered me the chance of setting consistent lap times."

Duval added: "This has been quite a promising start into the weekend. In fast corners, the handling of my car still tends to be slightly nervous, therefore, there's still quite a lot of work waiting for us."
