Monza Qualifying : not really close

Hamilton dominated qualifying for the Italian GP

After Friday practice at Monza it looked like there might be a real challenge to the Mercedes from Williams and even Ferrari.

Saturday dispelled that notion:  A Mercedes one-two and with Williams on the second row but a full 1/2 second off for Bottas in P3 and almost 8/10th for Massa in P4.

Behind the Williams, another Mercedes powered pair, Magnussen and Button both well over a second off the pace.

Row 4 has Fernando Alonso and Sebastian Vettel 1.3 secs behind.  That should make for a nice battle.

Hamilton is very much in control with Rosberg looking rather nervous in the post qualifying press conference.    Rosberg could not run in the free practice saturday morning because of an issue with his gearbox and this certainly hurt him in qualifying and possibly the race.
