Lewis Hamilton has shown few signs of relenting at the front of the Formula 1 field at Monza after he topped both practice sessions on Friday.

Running with an upgraded Mercedes engine for the Italian Grand Prix weekend, Hamilton led home a one-two finish for Mercedes in both FP1 and FP2 ahead of teammate and championship rival Nico Rosberg.

Mercedes laid down an ominous pace at the front of the field that seems to be out of reach for the chasing pack. Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel finished as the best of the rest, but was still over three-quarters of a second behind in FP2.

All eyes will be on Hamilton and Rosberg to see if they can continue this good form in the final practice session at Monza on Saturday morning ahead of qualifying later today.

Hamilton moved into a 28-point lead at the top of the drivers’ championship after winning the Belgian Grand Prix two weeks ago at Spa, and will be hoping to increase this advantage to over 30 points this weekend with a seventh win of the season.

The Briton is a two-time winner at Monza, but with Rosberg running him close during FP2 on Friday, he may face a stiff challenge to make it a hat-trick on Sunday.
