Again a high speed circuit, offering low downforce.

Mark Webber and Hamilton are the only 2 drivers who are placed well in the WDC.

And this circuit favours Red-bulls the most.

Exciting race ahead.

Monza is a power track. McLaren will be stronger here. RedBull will still be in contention like they were in Spa, but they cannot dominate here like they did in Hungary.

Most of the remaining races after this should favor RedBull, so this is the best chance for McLaren/Lewis to get some good lead going into remaining races.

Hamilton's gonna be edgy, like he normally is in a tight situation, while Webber's gonna be desperate. will be a tough duel between these 2. expect scenarios of 'who blinks first'. Chances of 'self-destruct' or an incident between them : VERY HIGH resulting in possibly a Ferrari crossing the line (it is Monza after all).

Why are Ferrari getting away with the "crossing the line" incident

And looks like Mclaren will undergo some chassis change and the Merc GP will get a Aero makeover for Monza.

I am keeping my weekend free for this race.

monza needs a car which is fast in a straight line, and with min wing, the scuderia just did a straight line test, this is their home track and they are always desperate to win here, but the car which is most suited to this track is mclaren, as most of us agree, but still it will be unpredictable given the situation in the championship and varied levels of desperation.

And the wing flexibility tests will add some more excitement to the season

BTW - is rain predicted for the weekend?

Good, if it does not rain tomorrow.

BTW, Schumi has set the fastest lap in Practice 1 and is improving each lap.

Hope his new aero package helps him for the further races.

Early days but Vettel is up on Webber and Button is up on Hamilton in practice 1.

With the rap on the knuckles Ferrari has received, will be interesting to see what happens to 'team orders' with respect to McLaren & Red Bull given a similar scenario as the practice on race day.

Im keeping my weekend free as well, not a race to miss this one !

Schumi ending up fastest in FP1 was surely impossible; first let him go faster than his Nico

anyway the results of FP1

FP2:
Vettel
Alonso
Massa
Hamilton
Button
Webber

I see a classic battle between Ferrari and McLaren in Monza coming up.
Bring it on.

Webber had a water pressure problem if FP2. If not, I'm sure he'd have been up there with Vettel. Clearly, Red Bull, while no longer utterly dominant, are very strong here.

Another reliability issue for Webber. Twice on two consecutive practice sessions now.

Alonso on pole, followed by Button, Massa, Webber and Hamilton. Tough luck for Liuzzi.

Alonso claims pole in Monza. Button P2 and Massa P3.
Webber did well to get P4 ahead of Hamilton and Vettel.
Hamilton made a mistake in the last lap, ended up P5, half a second slower than Button.

Brilliant Lap from Alonso to get the pole and cheeky enough to pit at the end of the next flying lap. Button was significantly slower than Alonso in the first sector and hence his purple in the second wasn't going to make much difference.

Massa did well to come third but still he needs to push more to have a shot at the title next year. Hamilton blaming it on the set-up

Webber did very well to get 4th after all the problems during FPs. If Alonso can now win this race with Massa getting second, Ferrari will be boosted and be very much a force till the end of the season.

Disappointed by Schumi's form though. When things are too close, he loses out massively. 2 tenths slower than Rosberg and missing out of Q3 has been the trend all through the season. Wonder what do they do at MercGP. They don't seem keen on improving the car and are in danger of losing to Renault in the WCC.
