F1 2019 Round 14 Italian GP - Practice
 

 
A rain-hit day of practice at the Italian Grand Prix saw strong performances from both Aston Martin Red Bull Racing and Toro Rosso as all four cars finished Friday in the top ten
.
 


At the power-dependent circuit in Monza, the opening session was run in largely wet conditions, with only the final ten minutes seeing any dry tyre running. Alex finished in fifth place, one position ahead of Daniil who separated the two Red Bulls as Max completed just 11 laps due to the conditions. Pierre finished in tenth place in FP1, and it was the same four positions occupied by our four cars in the second session, albeit in a different order.



This time it was Daniil in tenth place while Pierre finished seventh, just behind the Red Bull pair as Max led Alex. Max’s fastest lap was within 0.4s of the quickest time of the session, despite more of a focus on race pace as both he and Pierre will start from the back of the grid on Sunday after fitting the Spec 4 power unit this weekend.
 
 



 
Toyoharu Tanabe
Technical Director, Honda Racing F1   



"The occasional rain meant we did not get as much dry running as we would have liked, but it is the same for everyone. However, more rain is forecast for Sunday, so running in the wet had some value. In Belgium we introduced Spec 4 on two of our cars and here we have fitted it to the remaining two. We are planning to have all four cars race with it on Sunday and we will now work on analysing today’s data to prepare as well as possible for qualifying and the race on this unique high-speed track."
 
 


Pierre Gasly
Red Bull Toro Rosso Honda    FP1 : 10th
FP2 : 7th



"It was a good first day in the car with quite a few laps on the board. I’m feeling more comfortable with the car now and we managed to do a few laps on the wet tyre this morning and try different things, especially for me to get a good feeling with this car in the wet which was good. We had the first proper dry session in FP2 which I would say was quite positive, finishing with the seventh best time of the session.



Our long run pace was strong so it’s looking good, although we know we will start from the back on Sunday, but at the moment I’m happy with the car. If we can find a bit more pace we should have an exciting race."
 
 



Daniil Kvyat
Red Bull Toro Rosso Honda    FP1 : 6th
FP2 : 10th


"I think we had a decent Friday and managed to get a lot of mileage covered. We were able to complete our plan and the car is behaving quite well, I think we can try to optimise the package further for tomorrow and see if we can squeeze a bit more out of it. I was generally quite satisfied with how today went, so we need to work well overnight to continue improving the car."
 
 



Alexander Albon
Aston Martin Red Bull Racing    FP1 : 5th
FP2 : 6th



"There were a few crashes today as this track can be quite slippery when it’s raining, particularly with all the sap from the trees washing onto the track. We had mixed conditions, so we started out quite slowly but built up our confidence throughout the day. We are expecting similar conditions on Sunday so that is why everyone was out there trying to do some laps.



I found the short runs were more positive than the long runs and, after today, I have a good idea about the things I need to change and work on for Sunday’s race. Of course, it’s not easy adjusting to less downforce, the braking feels different, but overall it didn’t feel too bad. I’m just finding my feet and that makes it important to get everything right. We will see what tomorrow brings but after today I’m feeling pretty good."
 




 
Max Verstappen
Aston Martin Red Bull Racing    FP1 : 7th
FP2 : 5th


"It was a good day. Of course, the conditions were a bit tricky out there, but the car was working really well and we seem quite competitive on a track that doesn’t normally suit us. Around Monza, the real lap time is hard to see because of the tow but my fastest lap was done on my own and it felt good. I definitely think this new engine is a good step forward and you can feel the extra power which is positive.




 We know we won’t battle in qualifying as we will start at the back but looking at the long runs the pace was good and the car felt really nice to drive in all conditions which is always a big bonus. I would probably choose rain for Sunday starting at the back, as we will have a better chance of coming through the field, but even in the dry we can still be competitive and we will try to make a fun race out of it."
