Hamilton tops opening Italian GP practice
Hamilton scorches Monza
Lewis Hamilton, driving the superior Mercedes car topped the opening free practice session for the Italian Grand Prix. Ferrari's Alonso was second 0.035 seconds behind.

Alonso looked set to reclaim top spot three minutes later, setting the fastest times in both the first and second sector, only to run a little wide at the exit of the Parabolica, kicking up dust, and end up 35-thousandths of a second slower.

Nico Rosberg in the 2nd superior Mercedes was third ahead of championship leader Sebastian Vettel in the  Red Bull.  Kimi Raikkonen rounded out the top-5 in the new longer wheelbase Lotus.
