Kimi Raikkonen says tyre rule to be 'terrible' at Monaco

F1's new tyre regulations are likely to put drivers to the ultimate test on the streets of Monte Carlo later this season.

That is the claim of Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen, who was asked by the Finnish newspaper Turun Sanomat what effect on the racing the rule requiring drivers to run both available Bridgestone specifications at each grand prix might have.

"Monaco could be terrible," said the 27-year-old, "because most likely the harder compound won't have grip there at all."

Finn Raikkonen, however, explained that he won't be losing sleep over the new rule, which has been introduced to spice up the interest in the wake of Michelin's departure from the grid.

He said: "It's the same for everyone.  At some tracks it will be more difficult with the other compound than at others, but there is nothing you can do about it."

"It doesn't put any more pressure on me, I just drive."
