Kimi Raikkonen admits the decision to change his set-up for qualifying cost him dearly during the Indian Grand Prix.

The Finn was right in the Red Bull-McLaren mix during the final practice session on Saturday morning but he decided to change his set-up for qualifying.

It was a decision that backfired as he only managed to qualify in seventh place. The knock-on effect saw him stuck behind the Ferrari of Felipe Massa the whole race and he eventually finished P7.

"I had a very good car today but I just couldn't do anything with it as I was not able to pass on the straight," he said. It was quite disappointing but that's how it goes. We put ourselves in that position yesterday with the set-up we chose for qualifying and we paid the price today.

"We had the speed but not in the right place and when you are behind someone there's not much you can do. Hopefully in the next race we can be a bit more smart and use our race speed to take some more Championship points."
