Kimi expects Ferrari improvement

Kimi Raikkonen is confident Ferrari will up their game as the weekend progresses in Hungary after a below-par display in Free Practice 2.

The Finn was third fastest behind the Mercedes duo of Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg in the first session at the Hungaroring on Friday morning with team-mate Sebastian Vettel P6, but they slipped behind the Red Bulls in FP2.

Both Daniil Kvyat and Daniel Ricciardo were ahead of the Ferraris with Raikkonen only P5.

"I think we can for sure improve for tomorrow. It wasn’t a very different Friday to normal, the feeling was pretty okay with the car so hopefully tomorrow we can get it a bit better still and then see in qualifying where we are," the Finn is quoted as saying by F1i.com.

Raikkonen's morning session was slightly hampered when the front wing fell off his ST15-T and it turned into a messy affair as he rode over the debris and caused some damage to the car.

"It just broke suddenly," he said. "Obviously it damaged the front wheel, the front tyre and rear tyre. I don’t know what happened, it just came off.

"I’m not scared. Obviously it’s not ideal when the front wing breaks but we don’t know the reason yet. At least I don’t know, the team is looking in to it and hopefully we’ll find the reason for it."
