Daniil Kvyat says there is no point continuing to talk about the drive-through penalty that he received at the Chinese Grand Prix.
On the opening lap of the race, the Russian made contact with both McLaren's at the exit of Turn 4, which resulted in both papaya-coloured cars returning to the pit lane for quick repairs.
Ahead of the Azerbaijan Grand Prix next weekend, Kvyat says that he must move on from the penalty as discussing it further will not bring his race in Shanghai back.
"After China, my opinion on the penalty decision relating to the first lap incident hasn’t changed, but the debate is over and we must move forward and look to Baku now," he said.
"Thinking about what happened or discussing it further will not bring my race back. On the positive side, in Shanghai, qualifying was very satisfying and my pace in the race was very promising.
"We just have to keep working hard, not get disheartened, not give up and the results will come."
With the tricky Baku City Circuit hosting the fourth round of the 2019 Formula 1 world championship next weekend, Kvyat believes that the nature of the track will deliver some good opportunities for Toro Rosso.
"Baku is a very nice track, because it presents many challenges, with a bit of everything and overall it is fun to drive there," he said. "It’s a long track, with a very long straight and a lot of corners, which all makes for exciting racing and should present a good opportunity for us.
"The fun comes partly from all those walls that are very close to the track, which give you a real adrenaline rush. It’s a track with many overtaking opportunities and the long straight means you can fight other cars.
"It’s an interesting track as it is very demanding and you have to run slightly less downforce than you would do normally at a street circuit.
"Braking is also challenging so you have to be on top of that, especially approaching Turn 1 at very high speed at the end of the very long straight. You need to be precise with the braking points there. I will give it my all."
