Daniil Kvyat: “It couldn’t have been much better”


Daniil Kvyat was disappointed to be jumped in the pit stops by the Force India of Nico Hulkenberg, but believed he got the most out of his car during the Brazilian Grand Prix on Sunday.

The Infiniti Red Bull Racing driver secured seventh position at Interlagos, but bemoaned the lack of opportunity to reclaim sixth place from Hulkenberg despite finding himself within DRS range on a number of occasions.

“We extracted pretty much the maximum out of what we could have done,” reflected Kvyat. “Unfortunately we got undercut by Force India at the first pit stop which compromised our race a bit.

“After that I was following Hulkenberg all the time and it was quite hard to find a place to overtake. We were stuck behind him trying to attack but they were controlling us in a straight line so it wasn’t easy, I got in DRS range a couple of times but it didn’t really help.

“Anyway we have to be happy with those 6 points at this track. All in all we had a very controlled qualifying yesterday and a controlled race today, so it couldn’t have been much better.”
