British driver sets the pace in Spain.
Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton was fastest in the opening morning session of the third and final week of testing ahead of the upcoming 2013 Grand Prix season.
Former drivers’ world champion Hamilton, getting to grips with his new Mercedes drive, clocked 1 minute 41.614 seconds in cold, rainy conditions at the Catalunya Circuit near Barcelona.
The conditions meant that times were considerably slower than they were last week at the same venue.
Winter testing will conclude on Saturday ahead of the season’s opening Grand Prix in Australia on March 17.
