Jules Bianchi was the fastest man on Wednesday during the second and final day of pre-season testing at the Silverstone circuit.

The Frenchman replaced Kimi Raikkonen for the day as the Finn takes some rest following a heavy accident during the British Grand Prix.

Bianchi posted a 1:35.262 to go just two-tenths slower than Felipe Massa's best from Tuesday.

The session ended 20 or so minutes early as a safety barrier needed replacing, but it gave Daniil Kvyat enough time to go second fastest, with McLaren's Kevin Magnussen third.

Lewis Hamilton was fifth and enjoyed a spin at Stowe which brought out the red flags.

Charles Pic meanwhile conducted running for Lotus and Pirelli to trial new 18-inch wheels for potential use in future seasons.
