Kimi Raikkonen has denied that issues with his F14T's brake-by-wire system were behind his difficult start in Australia.
Raikkonen failed to take the fight to team-mate Fernando Alonso at the season-opening grand prix, qualifying in 12th place and finishing the race P7.
His lack of pace led to some speculation that Ferrari's brake-by-wire system was causing the Finn a few issues, something he has refuted.
"I don't know where that came from, I mean it's not the issue," he said. "There is nothing wrong with the system.
"Somebody asked me after the race and I said this is not that because they kind of said there's some issue, and it's not true.
"It is just mainly set-up, to get the car as I like it to run, how I need to have it.
"I'm sure once we are making some stuff for me so hopefully once we get those it will get a bit more easy, get a bit more feeling in the front end. So it will take a little while."
The 2007 World Champion is confident that in time he will get a handle on the "small things" that blighted his progress in Australia.
"It's going to be a long year so hopefully we can now just build on it.
"We have plenty of good people and they're working flat-out as a group to improve things.
"So we still have things to do but I'm sure we can keep progress."
