Kimi Raikkonen gave a quiet vote of confidence for Ferrari following a disrupted first day of free practice for the Monaco Grand Prix, but says Saturday will be a true sign of where the team is positioned.

With a dirty circuit greeting the drivers in FP1 and rain falling after just 30mins of an already red flag-disrupted FP2, relevant track time was limited over the course of the day, with no team able to trial the super-soft tyres they will use in qualifying.

Nonetheless, Raikkonen - who was fourth fastest in the brief dry period - is content with the set-up of the car in the meantime, despite struggling to get the tyres to work initially.

"Obviously we have to see how the weather is and work on the car a little bit and make sure the tyres work well and go from there and do the best that we can in qualifying and in the race," he said.

"[We didn't learn] as much as we wanted but it's the same for everybody and we did the most that we could in these conditions. It's still a bit difficult to get the tyres working but apart from that it seems to be pretty OK."
