Ferrari suffered a below par start to the Singapore Grand Prix weekend, with both Kimi Raikkonen and Giancarlo Fisichella well down the order in Friday practice.

Raikkonen was the quicker of the pair during the two sessions and ended up with the 14th quickest time, although he was quick to point out that it will only be in qualifying when the team is able to see where it really stands.

Team-mate Fisichella was two places further back in 16th as he struggled to find the perfect set-up on the car and the team's chief engineer Chris Dyer conceded that the red flag caused by Mark Webber's accident in the second session hadn't helped the team's programme.

"Today's performance was definitely nothing to get excited about," he said. "The interruption to the session complicated the running of our planned programme, but overall we have gathered sufficient data to be as well prepared as possible for qualifying and the race. Tomorrow, our aim is to get both cars through to Q3: it won't be easy, but we will do our best. Both types of tyre showed some signs of degradation today, which makes the choice for the race even harder. From what we have seen, I also expect to see different tyre strategies employed in qualifying."
