Hamilton sets opening pace at Monza

Lewis Hamilton recovered from his Turkish Grand Prix drama to clock the fastest time on the opening day of testing this week at Monza as almost all the teams started work on the low-downforce configurations they will run at the Italian Grand Prix in a fortnight.

Kimi Raikkonen was second fastest, just over 0.1s behind Hamilton and BMW's Nick Heidfeld was less than 0.02s behind the leading Ferrari. Jarno Trulli gave Toyota some hope by going fourth fastest. Williams, Toro Rosso, Renault, Honda, Red Bull and Super Aguri were all in action today on a relatively uneventful session. The weather remained good until late in the afternoon when rain began to fall. Testing continues tomorrow.
