There was a somewhat subdued reaction from both McLaren drivers following Friday practice at Monza, despite Lewis Hamilton leading Jenson Button to a one-two. For the latter, dry weather was one of the main reasons to be happy and – despite the Mercedes power advantage - Button still expects a stiff challenge on Sunday.
“It’s been satisfying to get some dry running under our belts today because we were able to gather a lot of useful information,” the 2009 World Champion said at the end of what had been Formula 1’s first all-dry Friday since Valencia 11 weeks ago.
“We tried a few different directions with setup this afternoon - and some were better than others – but we’ll decide what works best before FP3 tomorrow and we’ll make the necessary tweaks to get the balance right. I’m pretty comfortable with the car; you always want more, but we’ve done a reasonably good job today.
“Looking at the data, there are quite a few teams out there that look quick too; it’s very close and that’s going to make it an interesting race.”
Also at Monza this weekend, both men have put the Hamilton-Twitter situation of Spa behind them, after important telemetry data had been posted on the internet.
