Biv8jsMIQAAuyimKimi Raikkonen was struggling in qualifying, the Finn crash coming out of Turn 3 summed up his session, the footage showed to use a bit too much throttle on the way out of Turn 3, ended up nudging the wall.

“I was just playing around with the switches or something and got a little bit of wheelspin and touched the wall,” Raikkonen said. “It was just one mistake. I just got a little bit of wheelspin. I wasn’t pushing anymore anyhow but just got wheelspin. I just couldn’t catch it. That didn’t change the fact that we would not have gone through anyhow.

“I think we had some speed, but it was just the traffic, so obviously with those things it’s a bit tricky. I didn’t have any more time to do an extra lap [when I spun] so I would have come in [the pits] anyhow.”

“Overall we probably struggle a bit on our set-up. We knew that already from testing. We are waiting for new stuff that we want to try. Unfortunately that will not happen overnight.”

“It seems to be tricky here for some reason. For some reason when we come here it doesn’t turn out to be nice weather. It can be like it is now or sunny like it was yesterday. That’s how it is. Tomorrow is another day.”
