Free practice 1: P18, 1:25.166, 21 laps
Free practice 2: P13, 1:23.317, 34 laps
Jolyon: “Overall the car feels okay, though we were not yet as competitive as we’d like to be. We knew Monza wasn’t going to be the easiest track for us, having said that, we know there is still more to come from the car. We did lose some running time this morning following a puncture on one set of tyres, but we managed to catch most of it back up during FP2 this afternoon.”
