Rossiter Fastest in Hockenheim Test

The top three times, set by Rossiter, Adrian Sutil and Loic Duval, were all earning in the morning session, with everyone else running at their quickest later in the day. Given the conditions, all teams took the opportunity to fine tune their wet weather set ups.

The only driver not to make an appearance at the test was Thomas Holzer, who had a large crash during a test last week at Spa Francorchamps. His team, AM-Holzer Rennsport, is the only team using a Mygale chassis, and the extent of the damage meant that repairs could not be effected in time for this test.
