F1 >>> NEWS Lotus has maintained its current momentum in Grand Prix racing by topping the time in the Young Drivers’ Test sessions at Abu Dhabi. New GP2 Champion Davide Valsecchi topped the times in the three-day test by a narrow margin, the Italian lapping the track in 1:42.677s, just 0.02s fastest than the time set by Antonio Felix da Costa. The 21-year-old Red Bull driver led the times in the Wednesday session by almost half a second, covering 140 laps. The other driver to top the sheets on one of the days was Kevin Magnussen. The son of former McLaren driver Jan Magnussen completed 40 laps in a shortened session last Tuesday. Magnussen was one of three sons of former F1 drivers to attend the test. He was joined by Alain Prost’s son Nicolas and Johnny Cecotto Jr, son of former Theodore and Toleman driver Johnny Cecotto.
