Michael_Schumacker-PressJenson Button dominated the Belgian GP last weekend and is now in P2 in what was the first practice here at Monza. The “temple of speed” is a 5.793km long track and has hosted more than 60 GP’s so far.

After escaping a grid penalty Schumacher successfully claimed the P1 in this practice session on a track that will suit the Mercedes D-DRS systems.
