Magny-Cours Test - Day Three Results

Results: Bianchi 1st (1:16.985), González 2nd (1:18.018).

Sahara Force India reserve driver & Ferrari Protégé Jules Bianchi made it a clean-sweep today as he topped the third and final day of testing in France.

He made his second appearance for Ferrari and completed a total of 136 laps.

Meanwhile, GP2 driver Rodolfo González got his first taste of an F1 car as he piloted the Force India VJM05. It was a tough start to the day for him because the track was wet in the morning. Controlling a Formula One car in the wet is tough at the best of times, but when you're a complete rookie, it's an even bigger challenge! Rodolfo made no major mistakes though, a good day for the Venezuelan.

You can read quotes from each day here (day one), here (day two) & here (day three).

Combined test times, Sahara Force India
1) Bianchi 1:16.467 (day two)
2) Bianchi 1:16.985 (day three)*
3) González 1:18.018 (day three)
4) Bianchi 1:18.070 (day one)*
5) Razia 1:18.535 (day one)

Note: * = for Ferrari.


They're not particularly relevant laptimes due to differing fuel loads, but we thought they'd make an interesting comparison.
