Daniil Kvyat wants to begin 2016 how he finished this season.

The Russian suffered a slump in form after being dropped by Red Bull Racing but recovered after the summer break.

Now set to begin 2017 with Toro Rosso again after being retained by the energy drinks company's Italian team, Kvyat wants to carry the positive momentum from the tail-end of this year through.

"I have been feeling comfortable in the car, confidence levels have grown through the season, especially after the summer break," Kvyat said. "My engineering crew, we have had good confidence [towards the end of the year] in doing our thing and they are pleased with how everything works. We hope to carry this confidence to next year."

Kvyat credits the summer break for rescuing his season, and as a result his career as his place in the team was under threat from eventual GP2 champion Pierre Gasly.

"I think summer break was very useful for me. After the summer break it started to be much better and Singapore was the turning point.

"After the summer break it was more relaxed, everything was more under control operation wise, I was a lot calmer in my radio communications and everything."
