Kimi Raikkonen is hoping for a dry German GP after lacking pace in the rain in Saturday's qualifying.


Down in tenth position in Q3 and with time running out, Raikkonen opted to pit for a fresh set of extreme weather tyres in a bid to improve his time.

However, even with the new rubber, the Lotus driver says he lacked grip and ultimately speed.

"We weren't fast in the wet today for some reason and we need to look at why that was," said the 2007 World Champion.

"I wasn't able to get any grip from the tyres, even when we tried a fresh set of wets halfway through the final qualifying session."

Qualifying in tenth place, 5.190s off the pace, the Finn is hoping for a dry afternoon come Sunday's German GP.

"In the dry the car is very good and in the races our car usually has strong pace.

"Let's hope for some dry weather tomorrow and see what happens."
