Monza, Italy - Lewis Hamilton's hopes for a grand slam repeat at the Italian Grand Prix ended after the first practice.

The Formula 1 champion was edged by Mercedes team mate Nico Rosberg at Monza on Friday (September 2).

Rosberg was 0.203 seconds faster than Hamilton.

Several drivers tested out a protective halo device designed to reduce the risk of head injuries, following the deaths of F1 driver Jules Bianchi and British IndyCar driver Justin Wilson in 2015.
