Lewis Hamilton posted the fastest time of the day during the second free practice session for Sunday's Italian Grand Prix.
Hamilton went around Monza in 1:22.801 on the super-soft tyres to finish 0.193 seconds ahead of his Mercedes team-mate Nico Rosberg.
The Ferrari pair of Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen had set the early pace but it was long before Hamilton and Rosberg were battling it out for the top spot with the German enjoying a brief spell as the fastest on track only to be demoted to second by his team-mate.
Vettel and Raikkonen were third and fourth with Red Bull's Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo sixth and seventh.
Valterri Bottas in the Williams was eighth ahead of the Haas of Romain Grosjean and McLaren's Jenson Button.
It was Rosberg who led the way during the first free practice session.
Rosberg produced a lap time of 1:22.959 on the soft compound tyres to finish 0.203seconds ahead of Hamilton.
There was little to choose between the Mercedes drivers in the early stages of the session but Rosberg fared best of all with Raikkonen best of the rest in third.
Vettel took fourth spot with Sergio Perez rounding off a good morning with the fifth fastest time for Force India.
Grosjean and Bottas were sixth and seventh for Haas and Williams respectively, while Verstappen was eighth in his Red Bull.
Grosjean's Haas team-mate Esteban Gutierrez was ninth with Daniel Ricciardo completing the top ten for Red Bull.
There was a frustrating start to the weekend for Felipe Massa as the Williams driver suffered an issue on his installation lap which resulted in him spending the first 45 minutes of the session in the garage.
