Sebastian Vettel followed on from his Grand Prix win in Spa by registering the quickest lap of P2, beating nearest rivals Fernando Alonso and Lewis Hamilton by almost nine-tenths of a second.
Vettel's Red Bull looked dominant at Monza this afternoon, ahead of qualifying for the Italian Grand Prix tomorrow morning.
"We will have to work, we have two or three things we have to find a step in. Even though the car was great, there were still two or three corners where the car was sliding," Vettel told Sky Sports F1.
Vettel will have to be wary off Hamilton tomorrow though, with the Brit's practice sessions being deceptively sluggish in recent weeks.
The German driver has set the Friday pace in the last three races, but Hamilton has claimed pole position in qualifying on each occasion.
The Red Bull Championship leader will be wary of his nearest rival. "I'm sure it will be very tight. I think it will be close tomorrow in qualifying, with many cars within a few hundredths," Vettel forecasted.
Hamilton himself is bidding to become the first back-to-back Monza champion in nearly 20 years, the last to do so was Damon Hill.
Hamilton was heard complaining over his team radio of oversteer and lack of horsepower down the long straights of Monza.
