Hamilton leads the way as Italy sessions get underway

As anticipated, Mercedes had the advantage as the action in Monza kicked off. Hamilton finished ahead of Bottas, with Ferrari a full second further down the road. Red Bull and Force India were next in line. The track was slippery initially, and although it cleared up as the rubber went down, things were re-set when rain started to fall towards the very end of the session.

Carlos Sainz had a spin, but found himself able to continue without trouble thanks to the generous run-off area.
