Kimi Raikkonen believes he has made a step forward with the F14-T's set-up following difficulties in Melbourne.

The Finn described Friday's running as "positive" after he finished practice just three hundredths off Nico Rosberg's quickest time.

"This was definitely a positive day and I had a better feeling compared to Friday in Melbourne," he said after.

"I was more comfortable with the F14-T today."

However he's aware that even if they have an error-free weekend, there is still a long way to go to catch the Anglo-German outfit.

"Even if we had no problems whatsoever, we know there's still a long way to go and a lot to do.

"Our programme concentrated on car set-up and on testing the compounds that Pirelli has brought here," he explained. "The handling seemed to be good even if, as we found on the race simulation, we will have to pay very close attention to degradation, which is particularly high here.

"Now we will spend the evening carefully analysing all the data we gathered over the day, to try and work out how to improve."
