Kimi Raikkonen will start the Hungarian GP from only sixth place, three spots behind Lotus team mate Romain Grosjean.
Raikkonen, who missed the Silverstone test, admits that he’s struggled to get fully on top of the new tyres.
“Not ideal, but I think it’s been a difficult weekend so far for me,” said the Finn. “With the new tyres it’s more hard to get the car as I want. Qualifying wasn’t too bad, but I’m still missing a little bit of speed.
“We’ve seen a lot of places won or lost in the race in the past years. We’ll do our best, and if we can make the car work well on the tyres, we can make a lot of places, or it can go either way.”
Asked how he though the tyres would last, he said: “I have no idea, we’ll see tomorrow.”

How much of tyre related changes in performance are due to construction changes & how much due to forcing team to follow Pirelli’s recommended cambers & pressures?
