At the Italian Grand Prix Saturday, Lewis Hamilton delivered the precision lap that seemed to have evaded him since Barcelona. Much to the relief of the whole watching Formula 1â„¢ world. Everyone wants the epic intra-team battleÂ to continue. Complete with it’s drama. Nico Rosberg ignored him at the post Qualifying weigh-in. AddingÂ a little more tension toÂ the rivalry.
It is important to note that Rosberg is set-up withÂ a lower-downforce wing angleÂ thanÂ Hamilton. This was evident in the speed traps as the Briton’s W05 was 3 kph slower than Rosberg’s 353 kph top speed.
This should make Rosberg faster through the straights and Hamilton sharper through the curves. A super contest is onÂ tomorrow at Monza, the temple of speed.
