Italian GP: Lewis Hamilton fastest in second practice at Monza

Lewis Hamilton was fastest in second practice at the Italian Grand Prix as Mercedes dominated yet again. Hamilton was 0.262 seconds quicker than team-mate Valtteri Bottas after they completed laps in line astern, each trying to benefit from a slipstream. Daniel Ricciardo was third in the Renault but had his lap time deleted for running off track at Parabolica. McLaren’s Lando Norris took the place with a lap set late on after engine problems. His team-mate Sebastian Vettel was 12th, and had a spin at the first Lesmo on his race-simulation run later in the session, the most serious of a number of off-track or out-of-control incidents for the four-time champion through the day. Verstappen crashed in first practice in the morning and was just over a second slower than Hamilton in the afternoon, while Gasly was 0.107secs ahead of the Red Bull with his time. His team-mate Alex Albon was 14th fastest after having his best lap time deleted for running wide at Parabolica.
