1 Mins read

Chevrolet were again the team to beat in World Touring Car Championship free practice at Monza in Italy, with Rob Huff and Yvan Muller topping the two sessions.

Standings leader Huff went quickest in the first session, with SUNRED SEAT driver Gabriele Tarquini going second quickest, one tenth down on Huff. Muller was third, 0.335 off Huff, with Engstler BMW driver Kristian Poulsen just behind. Tiago Monteiro was fifth quickest in his SEAT, with Tom Coronel sixth in the ROAL Motorsport BMW. The third Chevrolet of Alain Menu was seventh.

Muller led a Chevrolet Cruze 1-2-3-4 in the second session, with a best time that was one and a half seconds quicker than Huff's time in the first session. Huff was second quickest this time round, albeit nearly five tenths down on his teammate. Menu was third, eight tenths off Muller, while Bamboo Cruze driver Darryl O'Young was fourth, just over a second off Muller. Monteiro was again fifth, with teammate Tarquini sixth.

Franz Engstler found the gravel at the parabolica in the first session, while in the second session Marhcy Lee and Mehdi Bennani had incidents at Lesmo, with Lee losing control of his car and hitting the barrier on the inside while Bennani spun off into the gravel. Ibrahim Okyay, making his WTCC return, performed a full 360-degree spin at Ascari but kept it out of the barriers.
