Raikkonen: No change at the front

Raikkonen: No change at the front

Kimi Raikkonen expects little change to the pecking order in Barcelona as none of the teams got a jump on the others in Friday's practice.

Although the majority of the field arrived in Spain with upgrades to their cars, each step forward was negated by rivals making similar improvements.

Thus Raikkonen, who finished Friday's running fourth on the timesheets - 0.222s adrift of Sebastian Vettel, reckons there will be no surprises come Sunday.

"It doesn't look like it," Raikkonen said. "It's very similar to how it has been before in the races.

"So it's more about whoever gets it right I think in certain races, certain circumstances, they're the ones that are going to be up there."

Lotus was one of those teams to update their car, however, given the different conditions between the last time he was at Barcelona in pre-season testing and Friday's running, the Finn says it's difficult to compare the difference.

"You cannot really compare it because the last time we were here was the winter so obviously the car has changed since then a lot.

"From the last race you can say every day can be different so it's OK; we have some things we have to improve but that's pretty normal."
