Daniil Kvyat took to the top of the timing sheets for the GP3 Series practice at Monza this evening.
Setting a best lap of 1:37.715, the Russian headed MW Arden teammate Carlos Sainz Jr, while Carlin pairing Alexander Sims and Nick Yelloly followed up in 3rd and 4th respectively.
Robert Visoiu made sure all three MW Arden cars were in the top five at least – an impressive effort from the Horner / Webber alliance – while avid Fumanelli, Alex Fontana and Lewis Williamson falling within half-a-second of Visoiu.
Melville McKee scored 9th place in his Bamboo Engineering entry, while Giovanni Venturini rounded out the top ten. Dino Zamparelli suffered a severe off at Parabolica mid-session; however the Marussia Manor man recovered to complete the session, albeit with time good enough for 13th position.
