F1 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix: Single lap pace could be a bit better - Kimi

Kimi Raikkonen: Obviously there is always something that we can improve, the Mercedes seem to be very fast, but we'll try to do as good as we can tomorrow...
Kimi Raikkonen says Ferrari needs to improve its pace a bit over a single lap in Abu Dhabi, but other than that “everything is working”.

Raikkonen was third fastest in opening practice at the Yas Marina Circuit on Friday, but slipped back to seventh in the second session, finishing the day 0.132s off team-mate, Sebastian Vettel in fifth – and over eight tenths off the pace setting Mercedes of Nico Rosberg.

“I think it was a normal Friday. Things could have been a bit better on a single lap, but overall it was not too bad,” the Finn summarised.

“We have some difficulties with the super soft tyre in the long runs, but it was OK. Everything is working.”

Asked if he was surprised to have Force India's Sergio Perez ahead, as well as both Red Bulls, he replied: “I haven't seen the data from today yet, but it's only Friday and we don't know what the others were doing.

“Obviously there is always something that we can improve, the Mercedes seem to be very fast, but we'll try to do as good as we can tomorrow. This is a nice place to finish the season, hopefully we can do well.”
