Kimi Räikkönen feels it “was not too bad” a day for Scuderia Ferrari at the Autodromo Nazionale Monza.

The Italian Grand Prix is the team’s home race and Räikkönen was second fastest in both sessions with Free Practice 1 being held in the wet before a dry afternoon session.

“This morning the session was held in the wet and we could only do a little running, but in the second practice, track conditions were back to normal,” said the Finn.

“The conditions were the same for everybody, we cannot change the weather; I think that in the end we were quite lucky to have at least one session in the dry.”

With the changeable conditions in the opening 90 minutes of the weekend and a big crash for Marcus Ericsson in the afternoon meant the Finn did not manage a huge amount of running.

 The Finnish driver knows there is the usual things to do at the start of a race weekend and he was pleased with how the Friday went in Italy.

“Both compounds were ok, but obviously we did not do much mileage today,” he said.  “We are on yet another different track, so we obviously had some things to fine tune today, but it was not too bad for the first laps.

“Now we need to go through things and try to improve a bit for tomorrow”.
