Monza Practice

In free practice today, Red Bull surprised yet again with their pace.

In first practice Button set the fastest time but in second practice, Sebastian Vettel was quickest from the two Ferraris of Alonso and Massa.  Hamilton, Button and Webber completed the top five times.

Many people were expecting Monza to be a circuit where the Red Bull strengths would not show through and that the out and out speed of the McLaren would dominate.

Tomorrow will tell of course but so far, at least in Vettel's hands, Adrian Newey and team seem to have produced an optimum set up for this low downforce circuit.

Hamilton favoured a smaller rear wing than Button.  Button's larger wing can run in low drag with the F-Duct while giving greater downforce where needed.
