Kimi Raikkonen will start the Spanish Grand Prix from 16th on the grid
Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen has accepted responsibility for failing to make it out of the first qualifying session for the Spanish Grand Prix.
The Finn failed to go out for a second run and watched from his garage as he slid down to 16th place, among the first five cars to be eliminated.
"It was my mistake. I didn't do a very good first run," he told BBC Sport.
"It doesn't really matter whose fault it is. I wasn't really keen to go again, I thought we had done enough."
It is the second time in five races this season that Ferrari have been caught out in this manner, after the same thing happened to Raikkonen's team-mate Felipe Massa in Malaysia in April.
"I am disappointed because the car was looking in good shape this weekend," said Raikkonen who had earlier finished second fastest behind his team-mate Felipe Massa in final practice on Saturday morning.
Ferrari have had a disastrous start to the season but are running with a revamped car in Spain this weekend.
The team's new diffuser, sidepods, revised front suspension and tweaked front wing appear to be paying dividends - Massa qualified fourth, the team's best result of the season.
Barcelona has been a happy hunting ground for the Italian team in previous seasons with Raikkonen and Massa winning the last two Grands Prix held here.
