A very disappointing home Grand Prix for the Russian driver Daniil Kvyat so far. Power issues, missing qualifying and start from the last position. It looks like "a karma" of home race, because the driver faces problem in Sochi every year.
However, Daniil is full of confident and positivity for tomorrow race. And despite the start position he believes in some points for the team on Sunday.
"I still think we can do pretty good job tomorrow. I’ll start last, from Moscow actually. But I still think we can attack tomorrow and try to do good confident race and try to fight with the guys to Top 10," – Kvyat said.
Now it’s 30% for wet race tomorrow, but it’s most likely we will have fully dry race, especially according to today’s weather. For Daniil it makes no sense, he said that everything can happen on Sunday. And even it’s still raining it can work out quite well for him.
"Why not? If it [rain] will come, I would say it’s not the bad thing for sure, especially for my side, and even if it’s fully dry like today. Who knows what can happen at the Grand Prix? Remember Spa race, Friday and Saturday were awful, and Sunday was fantastic. So, I don’t give up at this weekend."
Today it’s turned out that Toro Rosso applied for rename the team for next season. According to some information, it’ll named "Alpha Tauri". The Russian stated he doesn’t know a lot about team’s plans in this term.
"I haven’t heard anything, I’ve heard as much as you did, so, I don’t know. I’m not in power to comment on it, because I’m honestly don’t know anything about it. For me it’s important to know the team is doing well in the future. And if they decide something needs to be changed, it’s no problem at all," – the driver told.
