Kimi Raikkonen has endured a frustrating Friday in Canada after struggling to find a useful set-up with his Ferrari around Circuit Gilles Villeneuve.

The former F1 world champion has been through a difficult day battling technical issues which plagued his second free practice session and ended the day only eighth on the timesheet and a sizeable 0.8s off his team-mate Sebastian Vettel in second.

Raikkonen says he and the team rattled through a variety of changes but were unable to find the potent combination which leaves them with a lot of work to catch up tonight and into qualifying tomorrow.

"It was far from an ideal day but we just struggled a bit and couldn't make any sense of the car," Raikkonen said. "We want to make the car handling better and we didn't manage to do so.

"It's one of those days when you keep changing but it still doesn't work exactly as you hoped. We tried many things and we have to go through them and pick the right thing for tomorrow."

With Ferrari's qualifying problems still fresh in the memory from Spain and Monaco Raikkonen will be keen to solve those issues in the final free practice session tomorrow ahead of qualifying as he looks to join his team-mate ahead of both Red Bulls and mixing it with the Mercedes duo.
