Kimi Raikkonen says that he was not comfortable with the Ferrari F14T across the two practice sessions for the Bahrain Grand Prix.

Raikkonen was 14th quickest in the second practice session, having been sixth quickest during the opening practice session, in which he ran wide and briefly got some air.

"Overall, this was a difficult day, because I didn’t feel comfortable with the car in either session," he said.

"In the first one, I damaged the floor on the kerb at turn 4 and this meant I had to pit. The team did a super job, because they got me back out on track in a short time, but then, because of a problem with the brakes, I was unable to complete the programme.

"In the second session we concentrated on looking at the two Pirelli compounds and with the Soft it was definitely better than the Medium.

"Now we will get down to analysing all today’s data, especially regarding the immediate change in the track from day to night and we will try and improve for qualifying and the race."
