Raikkonen expecting fresh tyre will help race pace

Kimi Raikkonen is expecting Lotus qualifying risky attempt will pay off in the Bahrain GP following deciding to save tyres for the race.

The Lotus has decided to run just one time through the Q2 in order to have more fresh sets of tyres for tomorrow. He qualified in 11th position.

“We took the risk to try to save one set of tyres and didn’t go out afterwards when we could easily get in [to Q3],” said Raikkonen.

“We thought it was worth it to save the tyres, so we’ll see what happens.”

“It will be more difficult [with tyres] here than it was in China, but I think everybody has the same issues. That’s one of the reasons why we didn’t go through [to Q3], but hopefully it will pay off tomorrow.”
