Elroy Wagner kept Franklin at the top of the timesheets on day two in Estoril on his first day in the car.
Meanwhile, day one's second fastest man Romano Agostino ended the day at the bottom of the times after crashing out of the session early on. The team were unable to repair the car, but it should be fixed in time for Davenport to run on day three.
Beckenbauer looked considerably happier than Adrien Simon had done yesterday, but it's likely there were still some worried faces atop the red Liverpool overalls at the size of the gap to Franklin, despite this still just being testing.
We also got the first glimpse of the 2014 runner-up in his new car, as Will Hoskins put the bright yellow Westwood third fastest overall, just ahead of Arden Hutchinson on his first day for Meteor.
Jonah Phipps was in the Rossi for the second day in a row, but also the last of this test, and he ended the day fifth, ahead of Ivan Lesic on his first run in the new Warrior, and Emma Wilson - who drove her last day for Lucas until practice for the first race of the season.
Gerard Alaniz set the eighth fastest time on his last day in the AMR, just ahead of fellow Manufacturer team Downton, with 2013 Champion Nathaniel Powers getting his first day behind the wheel of the BD03.
Judson Sikes impressed on his first day in the car, managing a time less than 0.030 slower than more experienced team mate Scott Parsons had done on day one for the new Ocelot team, but the big shocks were right at the bottom.
Nikolai Milkovich - on his first day in the new Ingram - ended the day slowest of everyone to complete their running, and yesterdays second fastest man - Romano Agostino - finished slowest after crashing out just a couple of hours into the session. The team were unable to repair the car and get him back out, but it will be fixed in time for Davenport's first run on day three.
As far as day three goes, Hutchinson and Milkovich are the only drivers who will continue from today, while we see Ruiz back at Franklin, Gerrard at Liverpool, Thunder for Downton, Domenicalli at Rossi, Davenport in the FUN, Ellington at Lucas, Kinnumen back at Westwood, Osterhagen in the Warrior, Beyer in the AMR, and reserve driver Cesar with his first run in the Ocelot.
