Begins another one of those dating expected, circuit of Monza, temple of speed, but with what has been seen this year in the GP of Europe may have to lose this honorary title… The truth is that it is a great weekend to be held the mythical GP of Italy. An appointment by and for Mercedes, although care with Ferrari that are in the house and put everything you need to try to make a good performance before his public. It seems that Williams and Force India are not going anything wrong on the long, straight Italian.
on the other hand, it will be very interesting to see how will Red Bull, which lately is doing breathtaking performances. In principle this should not be a circuit that is conducive to them, but we’ll have to wait to see how they are tomorrow and this Sunday, as we have lately had very good performances at Spa and Monza, just look at the results of the previous race. But, as I say, in principle, to the ones who suffer the most from the engine it will not go too well, see Honda, Renault and Toro Rosso (Ferrari 2015 Spec).
In the first two sessions of free 1 and 2 that have been held have seen some interesting details, but until we all put all the meat on the grill we can not judge with certainty. What we have been able to see is that Mercedes and you have your engine going quite well here because of the characteristics of this circuit. Just need to confirm the actual position of Red Bull and see where they are positioned Ferrari in the GP of your house. In addition, McLaren-Honda should have to suffer here, but they have not left too many bad feelings, at least for what I expected.
As in Spa had a good race, in the case of Alonso, and even though here has started with mechanical problems in both sessions of free practice, highlighting , the problems of the gearbox. For them, the mechanics have been quite entertaining this morning, although he has been able to roll over and finally get a good time. I hope that there are greater evils and not play tomorrow in qualifying and the race will also be quiet in terms of reliability for a Honda. Although they might be able to get into Q3 if others have problems, I think that they will stay at the doors, but outside of it…

Our other representation, Carlos Sainz Jr., it seems that is going to suffer again as in Spa and care because Renault wants to take a step forward tomorrow, which could make things difficult at Toro Rosso even more the situation. And by the way, Ecclestone has confirmed the renewal of Monza for three more years, you know that I was a little on the tight rope for a while. Now the fans of this circuit will be able to breathe for at least three more years… Tomorrow I will offer more about the session of free 3, qualifying and the Sunday race. Also the latest relevant news on the F1 arriving from the paddock.
