The Tauranga racing driver Richie Stanaway has topped the time sheets on the final day of GP2 pre-season testing in Abu Dhabi.
Another New Zealander, Mitch Evans, was third quickest.
GP2 is the Formula One feeder series.
The 23-year-old Stanaway raced for the Status team in last year's GP3 championship and was chosen to drive in the three-day test as Status prepares to move up to the GP2 series, which starts next month.
There's still no word from the team whether he'll race for them this year.
