After a wet week in Monza, you should scan your long range forecasts and hope for an improvement next week when F1 returns to the royal park for the real deal. More rain last night and this morning meant flooded tunnels under the circuit and not much track time.

Tonio had his second day in the cockpit and over the past four days, the first two with Sebastian Vettel driving, the team racked up a reasonably high mileage, which it is hoped will have addressed some of the reliability problems that have affected the cars in recent races. "Like all the teams, we have been working on a special Monza aero package," said Chief Engineer, Laurent Mekies.

"In our case this consisted of new front and rear wings as well as a new engine cover. So we spent time doing back-to-back tests to evaluate these elements. In addition, we worked on fine tuning car set-up for the Italian Grand Prix while also working on car systems and gearbox strategy, as well as the standard tyre comparison work."
