Rain washes out most of final Monza practice

Italian GP

Hamilton recalled how he dominated qualifying at Monza past year then wasted the pole position with a poor start in the race and finished second to teammate Nico Rosberg.

The Italian GP 2017 qualifying kicked off with rain on the track, it was Grosjean who complained first of the conditions on the track before hitting the barriers at the end of the straight. "I'm sure when we do the normal work and improve the things it will become an easier auto to drive and we will be able to improve quite a bit". The weather has obviously been incredibly tricky for us all.

When asked if he feels Mercedes is hiding its true pace, Vettel replied: "I don't know. It looks quite close between us and the Ferraris, so I anticipate it's going to be similar to the last race in that sense". "Overall, it was a positive day, the auto is looking strong, but obviously it's the next two days that count".

"Today was a real challenge with the break", Hamilton said.

But in Belgium he was in great form, quicker then Hulkenberg throughout practice, and was on the pace in qualifying too until a auto problem slowed him in the top-10 shoot-out and he did not end up setting a lap.

As usual. The Mercs will be right up there and still the favourites, however the ferraris also know how to set up a auto round Monza and it seems they are almost dead level with Mercedes in terms of power.

"We will have to work a little bit on the auto to make the most of it". Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel, who signed a new long-term deal in Spa last week, is leading the Drivers' championship by seven points from Lewis Hamilton.

Team-mate Kimi Raikkonen, qualifying P7 but starting P5, also struggled for grip, yet Vettel had no idea what went wrong for Ferrari.

According to a BBC report, Hamilton was 1.148 seconds quicker than Red Bull's Max Verstappen in second place as title rival Sebastian Vettel of Ferrari could manage only eighth.

In another eye-catching performance from a hectic session full of late drama, France's Esteban Ocon will start third for Force India and alongside Hamilton's Finnish team mate Valtteri Bottas.

Further down, Carlos Sainz made Q2 with 1m 39.788s for Toro Rosso, leaving Haas's Kevin Magnussen 16th with a last-moment 1m 40.489s on inters, ahead of Renault's Jolyon Palmer on 1m 40.646s on wets, the Saubers of Marcus Ericsson and Pascal Wehrlein on 1m 41.732s and 1m 41.875s, and Grosjean in 20th on the strength of his originally third-fastest lap of 1m 43.355s. A subsequent grid penalty for a gearbox change meant the Briton started 14th and finished 13th, while his teammate was sixth.

Felipe Massa was eighth in the Williams and Esteban Ocon ninth in the Force India after he and teammate Sergio Perez almost took each other out of the race in a ridiculous overtaking move.
