Kimi left high and dry by Ferrari

Kimi Raikkonen was left unimpressed by the poor communication from the Ferrari pit wall during qualifying in Austria.

The 2007 World Champion crashed out in Q1 on Saturday as he could only manage the 18th fastest time and when he was given his grid position by the team after the session he wanted to know "how the f*** is that possible".

Although he will start P14 on at the Red Bull Ring on Sunday due to grid penalties for four other drivers, the Finn admits poor communication on the part of the team was the blame for his woes.

"I got some information from the team and obviously it was wrong," he said. "I was doing the same thing that I had been told when we went out and I never got the information that the first plan was not even possible and we missed one lap completely. 

"The information I had was three laps and they obviously noticed we went out too late at some point and we were not going to have three timed laps.

"I was doing the normal thing and I was told that the plan had changed suddenly.

"The point is they sent me out too late, we missed the one lap and obviously it cost us a lot.

"I did the plan as I was told. There was a mistake at some point. The plan changed but I was never told."
