Monza FP2

By Harry Schofield :


The Ferrari of Charles Leclerc fresh from his maiden win in Spa was fastest again with a time of 1:20.978 .


Lewis Hamilton ws just 0.068 seconds behind him as the Mercedes seem to be holding back .


The Mercedes engines as we know from Spa had issues with full power so they cant risk any penalties with a possible engine failure .


My suspicion is Mercedes will turn the engines up only for 2 laps in qualifying and revert back to normal mode in the race, as I don’t think Mercedes are totally on top of the new spec engine.


Max Verstappen’s Red Bull was at a steady pace in 5th place with his new team mate Alex Albon behind him in 6th place.


FP3 will see how Saturdays Qualifying will shape up also to see what race pace the Mercedes have.
