Formula 1 Italian Grand Prix – How to watch, start time & more

Mercedes topped Friday practice for the Italian GP with an extended margin, leaving Valtteri Bottas "slightly surprised" by how far ahead the German manufacturer was after the opening day of running.

McLaren driver Lando Norris was Mercedes' closest rival in FP2, but he finished nearly seven tenths down on pacesetter Lewis Hamilton.

Max Verstappen, who has been consistently Mercedes' closest challenger in the Red Bull, finished more than a second off the pace in fifth.

Both AlphaTauri cars enjoyed a strong showing in practice, with Pierre Gasly even outpacing Verstappen in the afternoon.

Charles Leclerc and Sebastian Vettel could finish no higher than ninth and 11th respectively on Ferrari's home soil.
