In spite of this, both Grosjean as Gutierrez are serious candidates to reach the Q3 with the Haas F1 VF-16.

What is certain is that the performance of Haas F1 is being very positive in Monza as a result of the lower requirements for aerodynamic and its power unit Ferrari, as has been evident in the FP3. In this training, Esteban Gutierrez managed to reach the tenth position, interspersed among the pilots of Force India. For his part, Romain Grosjean had a performance more discreet, though no doubt the French pilot had the potential to get a good position on the grid, similar to those already achieved in the first races of the season taking advantage of the great starting point of the VF-16.
