Kimi Raikkonen is still not comfortable with his Ferrari after Friday's practice sessions at the Bahrain Grand Prix after suffering with a couple of issues on his car in FP1.

After two tricky opening races this year, Raikkonen ended the second session in Bahrain 14th fastest and over a second off team-mate Fernando Alonso.

"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."
