Marcus Armstrong continued to impress new employers DAMS by topping the timesheets of the final day of Formula 2 testing.
Armstrong set the fastest time of the day in the morning session with a time of 1.42.173. The Ferrari junior just beat countrymen Liam Lawson, Jüri Vips, and Guanyu Zhou by just under a tenth of a second.
The morning session was also notable for how close the Formula 2 field was in terms of overall pace, with seventeen out of the twenty-two drivers separated by just under a second.
There was one interruption to the session, and that was for a red flag that claimed four minutes of track time before the session was resumed.
Carlin’s duo of Dan Ticktum and Jehan Daruvala, had a quiet final day of testing, with Ticktum setting the best time out of the two with a 1.43.496, which was only good enough for twentieth fastest in the morning ahead of Daruvala, who was just under a tenth slower than the Brit.
Day 2’s pacesetter Christian Lundgaard also had a low-key end to testing with fourteenth in the morning and eighteenth in the afternoon, with the Dane’s best time coming in the morning with his time of 1.42.674 over half a second down on his ex-teammate Armstrong.
The Formula 2 family will stay in Bahrain for the next weeks before returning to Europe after racing has been completed.
