Williams' official test driver, the Frenchman, Jean-Christophe Boullion, was second fastest after a trouble-free run with a time of 1:23.34. Mika Hkkinen of Finland came in third, struggling to match the pace of the faster cars in his ill-sounding McLaren-Mercedes. His time of 1:24.61 edged out another Frenchman, Olivier Panis, who recorded 1:25.31 in his Ligier.
Karl Wendlinger of Austria, who has had a disappointing start to the 1995 season, was off the pace in his Sauber-Ford with a time of 1:27.45. There is still some speculation that he will be dropped by the Swiss team before the Monaco Grand Prix on 28 May.Reuse content
