GP Monaco, commenti post qualifiche–24/05/2014
Raikkonen was less happy with his F14 T.
"It just seemed to be more difficult – at the beginning of qualifying it was a bit better and then it seemed to get more tricky," he said.
"It’s been a difficult weekend so far again, just fighting with the car all the time. It’s not really set-up, we don’t seem to get the tyres working very well and are struggling with the fronts on this circuit."
The Finn believes the nature of Monaco has exacerbated his balance issues.
"It’s difficult to resolve because obviously on a normal circuit you can push," he added.
"On a normal circuit you can run wide [and] it’s fine, here there’s no second chance."
Kimi Raikkonen: “A question of feeling”
Kimi Raikkonen: “I’m not happy with this qualifying, because even though we worked hard on the set-up, making several changes, my feeling with the car didn’t improve much. Right from Thursday I had to fight to find the best solution and the time lost during the second free practice session certainly didn’t help. On top of that, we are not able to make the tyres work well here and in that situation, it’s not easy to put together a good lap, especially on a track where you don’t get a second chance. Sixth place is not ideal, but neither is it a disaster and tomorrow we will do our best to get the most out of it all.”
