Defending champion Sebastian Vettel bounced back after a disappointing morning to top the times in yesterday's second free practice session for this weekend's Italian Grand Prix.

Vettel clocked a best time of one minute and 24.010 to outpace nearest rival Lewis Hamilton by 0.036sec.
Hamilton was fastest in the morning session with a lap in 1:23.865, when Vettel was left in third place and more than 1.7sec adrift.

Michael Schumacher, 42, proved that he knows his way round the famous old Autodromo Nazionale Monza better than anyone -- after five wins at the track and seven world titles overall -- by winding up third in his Mercedes.
