Challenged and lacking pace, Daniil Kvyat faced the Singapore GP as a perfect opportunity to redeem himself of his last performances that the Toro Rosso with her. With a performance more than positive STR11, the Russian pilot was reunited with his best version, which was exemplified with the determined defence that he did to Max Verstappen in the central part of the race. In the end, the pace of the Red Bull left Verstappen sixth, although that does no more than add value to the career of the pilot natural Ufa. Finally, Daniil Kvyat crossed the finish line in ninth position.
Not had more than listening to Kvyat to see that the pilot Toro Rosso was satisfied with his performance, unlike in previous races. And so I did see: “I Think that today, I did my best out there. The truth is that I had a good dose of fun and I enjoyed some of the great battles that I had during the race. Unfortunately, not everything has been perfect and after a good start to the race ended up behind Sergio Perez and all because we didn’t have enough in straight-line speed to overtake him”.
In this line, Daniil Kvyat noted the effort of both his staff and the team to return to the right path after several Great Prizes complicated for all the parties: “I’ve pushed until the last inch, and I’ve left my soul on the track. The truth is that it is a pity that we could not pass Perez, but I’m happy to finish in the points again, to be fair. The team has done a good job after what has been a difficult period”.
