This is F1Minute - Red Bull and Lotus take their turns topping Young Driver test.
The young driver test in Abu Dhabi has drawn to a close now, with Antonio Felix da Costa leading the second day for Red Bull, and Davide Valsecchi securing the top spot for Lotus on the third and final day.
Day 2 had McLaren with the second fastest time courtesy of Oliver Turvey, who shared driving duties with Gary Paffett. Also in action was Esteban Gutiérrez, who is hoping to impress the Sauber bosses - he completed 93 laps, the most of anyone that day, and finished fourth fastest of seven drivers.
Esteban was pipped to the most number of laps by two drivers on the third day, with both session topping Valsecchi plus Alexander Rossi in the Caterham completing 86 laps. Rossi had his running curtailed, too, after an oil leak.
Luiz Razia was back in the Toro Rosso, despite feeling under the weather, whilst Gary Paffett took the day off for McLaren, leaving the work to Kevin Magnussen and Oliver Turvey. The team are confident that these three days of testing will have helped them in their preparations for the upcoming US Grand Prix.
