France Quickest at Silverstone

Team France dominated the second day of A1 GP testing at the Silverstone circuit, the French squad topping the times both in the morning and afternoon sessions

GP2 driver Neel Jani was second quickest for Team Switzerland despite completing the least number of laps during the day.
 
Brazil, in contrast, covered a total of 141 laps on their way to the third quickest time of the session.

Team Great Britain, quickest on Wednesday, failed to repeat their performance today, but British driver Robbie Kerr was pleased with their work over the two days.

"We've learnt a lot - gone the right way, the wrong way and the right way again," said Kerr. "There's a lot to think about. When we roll out next time we'll know from here where there's potential.

"Personally it's been really good - I've enjoyed it. It's good to get back in the seat and I'm looking forward to the season."

A1 GP will return to testing action later this month.
