Rookies Palou and Boccolacci top F3.5 test at Jerez
By:
Dec 7, 2016, 5:26 PM

Formula V8 3.5 rookies Alex Palou and Dorian Boccolacci topped the timesheets for the series' three-day post-season test at Jerez.

GP3 race winner Palou was only present for the final day of the test, making his debut with Teo Martin Motorsport – but Wednesday mileage proved sufficient for the Catalan to end up quickest.

Palou logged his best lap in the final minutes of Day 3's afternoon session, just overhauling fellow rookie Boccolacci, who had topped the morning session.

Boccolacci, Formula Renault 2.0 frontrunner and former Lotus F1 junior, was paired up with Fortec for the first two days before switching over to Teo Martin.

On Monday, RP Motorsport's Euroformula Open driver Damiano Fioravanti was quickest, heading Harrison Scott (AVF), Lotus regular Rene Binder and rookie stablemate Max Defourny.

Day 2, meanwhile, was topped by Pietro Fittipaldi (Lotus), the Brazilian ending the day four tenths clear of RP duo Steijn Schothorst and Damiano Fioravanti and sweeping both the morning and the afternoon session.

Name change

On Monday, the championship announced it would exist under the name World Series Formula V8 3.5 from 2017 onwards.

The 3.5-litre category had headlined of the World Series by Renault calendar before the French marque withdrew its support at the end of 2015.

The new name for the series, which will run alongside the World Endurance Champioship for much of 2017, has been approved by the FIA.
