Scuderia Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen expects an extremely tough Monaco Grand Prix on Sunday after the Finn struggled in qualifying.
While his team mate Sebastian Vettel will start the race from third place behind the Mercedes duo of Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg, the Iceman finds himself starting the race from 6th place on the grid behind the Infiniti Red Bull Racing duo on Daniel Ricciardo and Daniil Kvyat.
Raikkonen struggled with traffic on his final run but felt that the car was performing well however he crashed this morning, despite this the Finn felt that this had not no impact on his qualifying result.
He said that it won’t be easy on Sunday but that they will try their best to get a result but that he is not expecting to come away from the race with a strong result and said that he has paid a big price. Raikkonen goes into Sunday’s race in fourth place in the championship just ten points ahead of fellow Finn Valtteri Bottas in Williams.
Raikkonen will be looking for a solid result that will enable him to close the gap to his team mate in the championship.
