“GP3 Series: Lynn heads opening Abu Dhabi practice”
Alex Lynn took the top spot in this morning’s GP3 Series practice session at the Yas Marina circuit in Abu Dhabi.
With a quickest tour of 1:56.241s, the Carlin man headed a British 1-2 in the session with Nick Yelloly taking 2nd, just 0.027s adrift of the quick Lynn.
Marvin Kirchhöfer also came with one-tenth of the leading man, with championship contender Dean Stoneman 4th overall.
Stoneman will need to do better come this evening’s qualifying session. With a deficit of 47 points, the Koiranen man will need to score every single point on offer this weekend (with Lynn not scoring) in order to take the title.
The session was dominated by cars breaching track limits, but with so much run-off area surrounding the Yas Marina circuit, that is not unexpected.
