“Italian GP: Rosberg heads Practice Two”

September 5, 2014

Nico Rosberg topped the second free practice session of the Italian Grand Prix at Monza today.

The German set a quickest tour of 1:26.225s – some six-hundredths up on Mercedes teammate and championship rival Lewis Hamilton; however the latter lost a significant portion of the session when sidelined by an electronic failure.

Rosberg initially set the quick form on the harder Pirelli tyre – ahead of the persistent Fernando Alonso (Ferrari) and continued to show his pace later on the mediums.

Kimi Raikkonen and Alonso made the best of a solid day for Ferrari, with the pair accepting 3rd and 4th, while Valtteri Bottas (Williams) and Jenson Button (McLaren) and Sebastian Vettel (Red Bull) all set times just over half-a-second slower than Rosberg,

There were a few minor offs during the session, continuing the example set during the opening session, although little significant damage was suffered.
