Maurizio Arrivabene says he wants to see Kimi Raikkonen improve his qualifying performances in order to make the most of his 'super' race pace.

Whilst team-mate Sebastian Vettel has qualified no lower than the second row this year - including two front row starts in Malaysia and Bahrain -, Raikkonen's best Saturday performance in 2015 has so far been a sole fourth place in Bahrain.

Indeed, qualifying has been a persistent bugbear for the former champion so far this year, with Monaco proving another frustration when he could only manage sixth, a position he would retain to the chequered flag after a race-long battle with Daniel Ricciardo.

For Arrivabene, he says Raikkonen must improve on his qualifying efforts to capitalise on the race pace that the Ferrari manager is otherwise happy with.

"The problem with Kimi is qualifying because during the race you see that at a certain point in the race he had the same pace as Sebastian," he said. "I have no problem for the race because we know Kimi in the race is super and can do a good job.

"If I have to give him some homework, he has to write 100 times he has to be better in qualifying."

Raikkonen is currently fourth in the overall F1 standings, 38 points behind Vettel.
