Daniil Kvyat does not think that the 'Halo' system is need for extra protection despite heavy plans for it's introduction in 2018.

The 'Halo' is a safety feature that looks to protect the drivers head from any flying debris, but Kvyat thinks that there is enough safety already in the sport.

Of course, it’s a valid item but in my opinion there’s enough safety in Formula 1 and we don’t need it, but it’s not my decision.”

Kvyat also spoke about his Friday running and is quite happy with how it went.

“Regarding today, I think it was a decent Friday for us. We’ve completed a good amount of laps, ticking most of the boxes on our programme for today. The track conditions were not easy, as there was quite a bit of wind, but in general it was a good day.

“We will now do our usual job tonight and try to fine-tune everything to my liking in the attempt to be stronger tomorrow.”
