DAMS' Jake Hughes fastest in opening session in Italy
 



Briton Jake Hughes led the way in the forty-five minute Free Practice session at the Autodromo Nazionale Monza. The DAMS’ racer’s best laptime of 1:38.936 was three tenths faster than Trident and Ferrari Driver Academy’s Antonio Fuoco. ART Grand Prix and Honda driver Nirei Fukuzumi completed the top three.
 

There were several changes to the driver line-up for Round 7 of the 2016 GP3 Series season: firstly Ralph Boschung returned to the Koiranen GP squad while Jenzer Motorsport will run two cars only this weekend with Akash Nandy and Arjun Maini.
 

It was typically hot in Italy for the first session of the race weekend: Arden International and Renault Academy’s Jack Aitken set the early before his teammate Jake Dennis bettered his time. Series leader Charles Leclerc split the Arden pairing in the early stages to go P2.
 

Aitken returned to the top of the timings after being first to lap into the 1m40’s, once again ahead of his teammate Dennis with Alexander Albon up to third. Fuoco shot to P1 briefly before Fukuzumi found some extra pace to lead the pack.
 

In the final moments of the session, it was all change with Campos Racing’s Steijn Schothorst shooting to the head of the timesheet, before the Japanese driver reclaimed his P1. Scuderia Ferrari Team Development driver Leclerc lapped quickest but Fukuzumi bettered his time by a mere 0.003s.
 

However, Hughes had more pace in his pocket and marched to top spot after being the only driver to lap in the 1m38’s. The Briton remained in P1 at the chequered flag ahead of Fuoco, Fukuzumi, Leclerc, Sandy Stuvik, Kevin Jörg, Giuliano Alesi, Matthew Parry, Ralph Boschung and Alex Palou.
 

Qualifying takes place at 09.45 local time tomorrow morning (GMT+2).
