Kimi Raikkonen in Singapore expressed frustration about the reasons for his low qualifying position for Sunday's floodlit race.

The Finn qualified just 13th on the Marina Bay street circuit, while his new teammate Giancarlo Fisichella continued to struggle to adapt to the F60 and is a lowly 18th on the grid.

"We have decided to stop the development of the car and we are paying for it more race by race," Raikkonen is quoted as saying by the Italian newspaper La Stampa.

"I don't know if it was the right decision or not, you should ask the team," he added. "But we are fighting for third in the championship, not the first place."

Raikkonen predicted that the F60 will also suffer in the sweeping curves of the Suzuka circuit next weekend, but perform better at Interlagos next month.
