2011 ITALIAN GP: McLaren unreachable on FP1

McLaren fastest team in Monza!!!

McLaren had a perfect start to the Italian Grand Prix, Lewis Hamilton set the fastest time of the first free training at Monza and was nearly a second faster than team-mate Jenson Button, who was second fastest car this morning with the second McLaren. Vettel was third fastest with almost 1.5 seconds behind Hamilton and two tenths faster than team-mate Mark Webber who drove the fourth fastest time.

Sutil with Force India and Petrov with Renault on 5th and 6th position. Next on timesheets were Ferrari cars, unusually weak and had a relatively quiet training and Fernando Alonso sat out last 15 minutes of training i his garage. It is rumored that his engine will be changed. The Ferrari drivers compared two types of front wings during the session, so may have a different level of fuel acording much faster McLaren and Red Bull cars. But time will tell where they are now.
