Valtteri Bottas led the way in the afternoon Monza session, with Lewis Hamilton second. The Ferrari pair moved much closer to Mercedes, with the top four split by less than half a second. Both McLaren drivers also finished in the top ten, with Red Bull powering their Renaults to a good position as well.

There was some trouble for drivers, though: Lance Stroll spun and had a narrow miss with the barriers, whilst Fernando Alonso complained of no power and then managed to get everything going again. Carlos Sainz had engine failure that stopped his running, whilst Kevin Magnussen suffered suspension damage that ended his afternoon.
