Lewis Hamilton bounced back to top the times ahead of his main title rival and team-mate Nico Rosberg in Friday’s evening practice session for this weekend’s Italian Grand Prix.
Hamilton completed a best around Monza in 1:22.801 with super-soft compound to finish 0.193 seconds ahead of Rosberg.
Ferrari duo Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen were third and fourth with Red Bull’s Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo fifth and sixth.
Fernando Alonso was seventh for McLaren ahead of Valtteri Bottas of Williams and Romain Grosjean of Haas F1 and Jenson Button, in the second McLaren, completing the top ten.
Brazilian Felipe Massa, who on Thursday confirmed his retirement from F1, was 11th in his Williams and Kevin Magnussen, who limped away from a high speed crash in his Renault in Belgium last Sunday, was 19th.
Force India duo proves the long run pace in FP2 and finished the session in 12th and 13th ahead of Esteban Gutierrez. Marcus Ericsson was 15th fastest ahead of Pascal Wehrlein’s Manor.
Toro Rosso suffered a rather underwhelming session as they finished in unfamiliar territory at the back of the grid with Carlos Sainz finishing P17 and Daniil Kvyat P20.
