Lewis Hamilton scored his 'hattrick' of quickest times in free practice sessions, this morning in Monza. On a drying track the Mercedes driver managed a 1:24,544, beating the Ferrari of Sebastian Vettel with over two tenths. Nico Rosberg had to settle for third place being almost three tenths slower than his teammate.
Noteworthy was the result of Will Stevens. The Manor driver finished in fifteenth position, driving a 1:28,123. Stevens managed to stay in front of Verstappen, Sainz jr., Kvyat, Ricciardo and Mehri with this time. Ricciardo had to retire early from the session, with what looked like a hydraulic problem.
