Hamilton Fastest in Monaco Practice

Lewis Hamilton's good form this season continued in free practice in Monaco, when he easily set the fastest time in the Formula Three Euroseries session, ahead of ASM teammate Adrian Sutil

Hamilton Fastest in Monaco Practice

Hamilton's time of 1:29.958 was almost a second quicker than Sutil's, who was a tenth faster than the first non Mercedes powered driver, Loic Duval.

The session was notably calm, with most drivers keeping off the walls at the famous circuit. The only exceptions were Paul di Resta, who spun into the armco at St. Devote, and Lucas di Grassi, who found the wall at Masano.

The pair are expected to have little problem repairing their cars ahead of the qualifying session tomorrow morning.
