Grand Prix of Italy – Qualifying

It’s only been a few days since Hamilton won the Grand Prix of Belgium and closed Vettel’s lead to just 7 points.

It’s raining pretty hard ahead of Quali – will the start be delayed? If not, it’s very likely they’ll be running on full wets at least for Q1

Free Practice:

  1. FP1: HAM (1:21.537), BOT, VET, RAI, RIC
  2. FP2: BOT (1:21.406), HAM, VET, RAI, VER, RIC, VAN
  3. FP3: MAS (1:40.660), STR, HUL, SAI, PAL, ERI, KVY – in fact they were the only ones to set a lap time in the rain


Looks like WEH is getting a new gearbox (or a major rebuild) but the mechanics don’t seem to be rushing so maybe he won’t take part in Quali

Aaargh! I wasn’t able to watch live (it was TOPW‘s 200th walk) and the recording ended just before Quali started!
