RESULTS: Malaysian Grand Prix - Free Practice Results (2)

Kimi Raikkonen says Ferrari needs to 'regroup' after ending the first day of free practice action for the Malaysian Grand Prix half-a-second adrift of Mercedes at Sepang.

A return to one of three venues that saw Ferrari win in 2015, Raikkonen had hoped the Scuderia would take the fight to Mercedes once more this year but both he and Sebastian Vettel would end the day comfortably behind.

Describing his day as a 'messy' one, Raikkonen says he didn't have a 'good feeling' even if the lap time didn't necessarily represent this

"I think it was quite a messy day and not very smooth at all," he said. "We didn't have a good feeling all day and I'm sure we can regroup tomorrow. I'm surprised how decent the lap times were when the feeling was far from what I want. It was a bit tricky.

"We have to sit down and look things through and like I said it has been far from smooth running all day, so that didn't help. The feeling wasn't good, but the lap time wasn't disastrous, so I'm sure we can improve."
