Kimi wants qualifying improvement

Lotus driver Kimi Raikkonen (16/1 Indian GP outright) admits that he needs make big improvements during qualifying at the Indian Grand Prix after struggling over recent weeks.

Raikkonen has failed to secure a spot on the front three rows of the grid in his last five attempts in qualifying.

The Finn has not started any higher than P8 during Sunday races since the event in Hungary and he insists that he is working hard to change his luck.

The man who is set to join Fernando Alonso at Ferrari next season has still managed to pick up two podium finishes during that time but he believes he can make it easier for himself with a better qualifying performance.

Raikkonen said: “Hopefully we finally get it right in qualifying as the last five qualifying sessions have not been that great for me.

“If we don’t, it’s going to be a difficult Sunday afternoon, although of course we’ll keep pushing. If we do get it right, then we can really go for it!”

Raikkonen sits third in the drivers’ championship as he bids to try and close the gap on leader Sebastian Vettel (1/2 Indian GP outright) who boasts a 120 point lead.
