The Mercedes driver was in the Autodromo Nazionale by 0.056 seconds faster than his team colleague Lewis Hamilton. He gave a possible best time but with driving errors on his two fastest laps with the Supersoft tires. When the softest available tires were rewound in the finish, Hamilton first missed his first, then also the second fast lap with small inattentiveness. So he had no chance to reach the 1: 21.406 minutes of Bottas, although he had the Finns safe in the handle. Because Hamilton did not have his potential in contrast to Friday morning, when he had the Ferraris for more than a second The Top 4 were finally close together. Sebastian Vettel (3.) missed 0.140, Kimi Raikkönen (4.) 0.398 seconds on the best time. The top teams did not run smoothly: at Hamilton every time the seat was hot when the battery was charging, Vettel was vibrating on the brake , And Raikkonen drove once to the gravel bed because of a "bad balance" and lost a small bodywork part.Red Bull plays in the high-speed temple in Lombardy as expected only the third violin. Max Verstappen (+1.003) and Daniel Ricciardo (+1.346), who started the weekend with grid penalties, but secured positions five and six. Stops complained in the Longrun tests over an overheating left hind leg. And Ricciardo's lead on Stoffel Vandoorne (McLaren / 7th) was only 0.195 seconds. Fernando Alonso (McLaren / + 1,562), who once again let loose one of his famous sparks: "No power!" His racing engineer, who already knows this announcement from Spa, however, prepared this time and gave a concrete statement: "Default setting 0-5." To which Alonso replied: "Does not work." Just in order to stay on the track and to see that the problem could be solved also from the cockpit … For the title "Best of the Rest" would be planned according to McLaren, but Force India. However, while Esteban Ocon (+1.571) was ninth in the top 10, Sergio Perez (+1.946) did not reach 14th place. Carlos Sainz (Toro Rosso / + 1,744) on P11, whose Renault engine gave up the spirit in the second practice after 21 laps. Kevin Magnussen (17./Haas/+2,244) stayed in the Ascari chicane. He got into the spin with the acceleration from the second Lesmo. "Wheel suspension broken", sparked the Dane. And because his car had to be recovered from the danger position, the session was briefly neutralized with the virtual safety car. Nico Hülkenberg (12./Renault/+1.866) was only a little quicker on Friday afternoon than his team colleague Jolyon Palmer (13. / + 1,911), but increased enormously compared to the morning. Pascal Wehrlein, on the other hand, will not be able to see a country this weekend: with 3.889 seconds (0.401 on team colleague Marcus Ericsson), he finished 20th and last.
