Italian Grand Prix, Monza - Free Practice Session 1 - Result

On a warm day, without rain this time, Mclaren came out shinning with over a 1.5sec gap from the third man Sebastian Vettel. But it is only FP1, and teams are still evaluating their strategies, so competition would be tough as we progress.

However, Lewis Hamilton was the clear favorite pulling a sec lead to his teammate Jenson in the morning. Current Champion Vettel was only 3rd followed by his teammate Mark Webber.

Adrian Sutil in the leading Force India finished 5th fastest on the time sheet. An impressive start by Force India once again and also Nico Hulkenberg as a replacement to Paul Di Resta in FP1 finished 12th.
