Kvyat: Strong finish to season will open doors

ยฉ XPB 

Daniil Kvyat says he is motivated to deliver for Toro Rosso in the final part of the 2016 season as it will also open doors for his future.

The Russian driver has endured a difficult season, losing his seat at Red Bull after a frustrating home race at Sochi andย only scoring two points for Toro Rosso since being replaced by Max Verstappen. While he acknowledges his future is in the hands of Red Bull, Kvyat says finishing the season strongly would impress both his current team and potential suitors.

โ€œYeah obviously Red Bull has an option on me but Formula One is a sport where anything can happen anyway," Kvyat said. "Nevertheless I always aim to deliver as high a performance as possible because this will always open more doors for your future.

"At the moment I am just thinking about what happens today with this team and I am giving my absolute best to Toro Rosso. Then we will see.โ€

And Kvyat says he is getting better at dealing with the difficulties he has been facing in order to deliver on track.

โ€œIn a way yes because in the last five years there have always been a lot of up and downs. Of course in this last six months I would say itโ€™s quite different and a not very comfortable atmosphere for working, I would say.

"But I still feel like normal, for me itโ€™s all quite calm. Iโ€™m enjoying all the time on the track, Iโ€™m able to stay focused, able to work well with my engineers and we believe we are able to get closer and closer to extracting the maximum of the car.โ€
