Kvyat not letting poor Austria record hold him back

Daniil Kvyat is not one for statistics but still doesn't take pleasure in the fact that he has never scored a point around the Red Bull Ring. Having raced in Austria, three times, the Russian has retired twice (2014, 2016) and finished twelfth in his debut year for Red Bull.

Now back at Toro Rosso, Kvyat is hoping that his luck will change around a circuit he enjoys, as it is one he knows he can be very fast around: "Statistics don't interest me that much, it's not something I look into.

"For example, I've never scored any points in Austria, but this isn't something that makes me be obsessed every time this race weekend arrives. It doesn't change my approach to racing. I like this track and I know I can be fast – this is what really matters to me.

"Austria is an interesting track, with corners I enjoy. It's quite a short layout, but all the turns are very challenging and quite unique. The final sector is my favourite part, as it has many high-speed corners which are very cool.

"It's good to have so many race weekends throughout the year, and it's even better when they're one after the other – it's cool to sometimes get a lot of good racing together! It's also challenging for the teams and drivers to maintain high concentration and a good training level during weeks like these."
