Red Bull were back at the top of the times as Antonio Felix da Costa lapped the Abu Dhabi circuit quickest during day two of the young driver test.
His 1:42.679, although slower than the quickest time from Tuesday set by Kevin Magnussen, was enough to put him ahead of McLaren's Oliver Turvey who was almost a second slower.
It was a busy day for McLaren with Turvey and Gary Paffett's combined laps totaling 102, by far the most completed by any team.
Edoardo Mortara placed his Lotus third quickest having taken over from Nicolas Prost on day two, whilst Esteban Gutierrez took over from Robin Frijns at Sauber.
Johnny Cecotto Jnr and Giedo van der Garde once again complete the bottom two positions for Toro Rosso and Caterham respectively.
