Ferrari Team Principal Maurizio Arrivabene has stressed that his outfit must be "realistic" despite a double podium finish at the Spanish Grand Prix.

Kimi Raikkonen was second, with Sebastian Vettel third, but Arrivabene emphasised that the first lap collision between the Mercedes drivers distorted the situation.

"We must be realistic and accept the fact that, if both Mercedes had been in the race, the result would have been different," he said.

"We had an opportunity and we failed to take advantage.

"Even if on track we had a fast car we had to pay a hefty price for the problems we experienced in qualifying and which, on some parts of the circuit, re-surfaced during the course of the race.

"Now we must address these issues and move on from there."
