There were perfect weather conditions during this second practice for the Sunday's 2020 Italian Grand Prix.

A lot of drivers exceeded the track limits of turn 11 and had their lap erased.

Both Ferrari drivers had a hard time to keep up the pace and Sebastian Vettel. Because of the lack of engine power Ferrari has to ride with very low rear downforce. Vettel even spun the SF1000 coming out of the first Lesmo corner. Charles Leclerc almost did the same and even said to his team that qualifying would will be a disaster tomorrow.

Half way the session all cars came out to get in a lap on the soft tyres to practice for qualifying. The number of cars on the track almost looked like the race was already started.

The team to beat: Mercedes. Was again way faster than the rest of the grid. Lewis Hamilton was almost a second quicker than Pierre Gasly who was on P3 and very quick around Monza. Even quicker than Max Verstappen who was 4th in the Red Bull.

At the end of the session it was McLaren driver Lando Norris who ended up as 3rd fastest. The young British driver had fitted a set of red soft tyres for it.

Last years quickest lap time in FP2 was a 1:20.978 min, driven by Charles Leclerc on a wet Monza with the Ferrari SF90.

  1. Derek G STODDART

    Well we have now seen the most corrupt action by ANY "Race Organisers/marshalls in the Italian GP .

    It is quite obvious, especially , as Ferrari are performing so badly that when a perfect opportunity occurs, due to a crash, they noticed that Lewis Hamilton is just close to the entry to the pit lane, and with the safety car out , normal practice is for cars to come in for a pit stop, so they quickly switched on the "pits Closed" Light ( which is a VERY SMALL red light on the opposite side of the track, so not visible by Lewis !!! ) Even the comentators COULD NOT SEE THE LIGHT !!

    Then of course they could, give him a HUGE PENALTY , to ensure that an ITALIAN car/Driver might win ????

    Well what should we expect after all the ITALIANS INVENTED THE MAFIA !!!!

    The F1 organisers MUST change the RULES so that race organisers /marshals are of 3 DIFFERENT NATIONALITiES are the race controllers , and are NONE are the same nationality as the country in which the race is run

    It was good to see other drivers performing well and winning, but it was not a fair measure, when Lewis was unfairly "victimised "
