Lewis-Hamilton_2999129Lewis Hamilton says that their main rival Red Bull is massively quick at Italian GP weekend, also he admits that very hard to beat Bull in Monza. Even as the Brit believes that Mercedes’s overnight work will improve the set-up and expecting improve the pace in Saturday qualifying.

Championship leader Sebastian Vettel took top speed in second practice by a superior 0.6-second margin in his Red Bull, the German set best lap-time was 1’24.453 with medium-compound, and Hamilton’s best lap time was a 1:25.340 (.880 seconds gap).

“The car feels good,” Hamilton told ESPNF1. Red Bull is massively quick but generally the car feels pretty good, so I need to sit and try to understand where we can go quicker.

“I feel like I’m on the limit everywhere and the car feels reasonably balanced so whether or not we’ve got too much wing we’ll wait and see.

“Right now it doesn’t look massively strong for our chances but we’ll do some work overnight, improve the set-up, hopefully improve the pace for tomorrow and again you don’t know what fuel loads people are on so we’ll wait and see.”

“I’m not sure; we’ll wait and see tonight. I mean, the car feels really good so his car must feel incredible, so we’re just going to work overnight to see if we can find some piece from somewhere; I don’t know where we can get half a second. Usually it’s one or two tenths here, but half a second is quite a big gap.”
