Kimi Raikkonen says he is still not content with the handling of his Ferrari, despite edging team-mate Fernando Alonso in Friday practice for the Canadian Grand Prix.

Although Raikkonen has played down the issues he has had with his car in recent races, blaming it on a lack of performance overall from the F14 T, in Ferrari's post-practice press release he said the handling is still not to his liking.

"I am still not 100% happy with the handling of the F14 T, but I am sure that an analysis of the data we gathered will point us in the right direction for qualifying and the race," he said.

Raikkonen's practice session was not helped by an engine issue in FP1 which he said cost him set-up time.

"This morning, because of a problem on my car, I was unable to run as much as planned and that's never a good thing, because getting in plenty of laps is very important. Thanks to speedy work from the team, in the afternoon, we managed to make up for the run lost in the morning and even if it's too early to make predictions, overall, it didn't go badly and by the end of the day my feeling with the car had improved."
