Mercedes topped Friday practice for the Italian GP with an extended margin, leaving Valtteri Bottas "slightly surprised" by how far ahead the German manufacturer was after the opening day of running.

McLaren driver Lando Norris was Mercedes' closest rival in FP2, but he finished nearly seven tenths down on pacesetter Lewis Hamilton.
