Dany Kvyat will return to duty for Toro Rosso this weekend after being sidelined for two races to allow for a proper evaluation of his potential replacement, Pierre Gasly.
The Russian was benched after Singapore, following a poor performance and a 2017 campaign in which he hasn't particularly shone.
With Carlos Sainz's move to Renault, Gasly's likely return and Brendon Hartley's new presence, the future looks bleak for the Russian, who obviously wasn't pleased with his demotion in Asia.
"I don't think I was meant to be happy," Kvyat told Motorsport.com.
"Other than that, I think it wasn't actually a bad thing - looking back at it, looking at how the races were for the team, I wasn't even too sorry to miss these two races, because they were quite bad for the team's performance – but, to be honest, you always want to race, no?
"We will discuss these things behind closed doors, we will decide what's the next move for the future. I think I deserve this, to have clarifications, and we will get them together, one from another."
Kvyat was rather mum on the subject of his treatment by Red Bull and if he felt his dealings with the energy drink company had been fair.
"I don't want to discuss this now. Talking about this will not help me to focus my mind on the weekend," he said.
"That's all that matters, I want to put away all these thoughts about 'fair' or 'not fair', whatever.
"I just have my work here, my car, I have plenty of new stimulations, motivations, and I want to use them to my best, to try to maximise my performance.
"I feel like there was a very big potential all the time, which has not been used this year very well, and I want to correct this, because there is still a chance to correct this."
