Kimi Rakkonen admits he is frustrated that he has been relegated to the back of the grid in today's Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

Lotus driver Kimi Raikkonen has admitted his disappointment at being relegated to the back of the grid for today's Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

Raikkonen will start last because his car failed a front-floor detection test, and the Finnish driver has said that it is frustrating.

"It's a shame, but for some reason we got penalised," Raikkonen told Sky Sports News. "I always have a chance but we'll have to see how we do.

"Obviously it's not the ideal position, but we have a good car. Let's hope we get through the first lap well and then we'll see what happens."
