Italian Grand Prix – “Not where we wanted to be”
Kimi’s comments follow similar lines: “Today in wet conditions it felt quite tricky all the time. We struggled to get the tires working, in most places we had no grip and it was very slippery. It was difficult to go through the corners and be able to push and go fast. The starting position is not ideal but we’ll start in a bit better position thanks to penalties for the other cars. Now we have to wait and see how the weather will turn out. I’m sure that in the dry conditions it will be a lot different, our car should be working quite well”.
Raikkonen, who was well off Vettel’s pace in Q1 and Q2, but ended up just under a tenth quicker in the final segment, said: "We are not fast enough. From my car, I don’t know about the other car, but I struggle a lot with the grip.
"Either we didn’t make the tyres work, or whatever it is, it’s very slippery.
"Especially with the low downforce, you cannot put enough force in the tyres and it’s a never-ending story then."
