Daniil Kvyat: “It’s a great place for racing”

On the back of his best result of fourth in Formula 1 at Monte Carlo two weeks ago, Russian driver Daniil Kvyat arrives in Canada for round seven of the season this weekend looking for more of the same.

Despite both Monaco and Montreal being temporary circuits, Infiniti Red Bull Racing’s Kvyat knows that the race weekend in Canada is likely to be vastly different to that of Monte Carlo, revealing that he is looking forward to the ‘unique feeling’ of racing at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve.

“It’s quite intense but in a very different way,” revealed Kvyat. “The straights are long but you have these big braking zones. It has a little bit of the feeling of street circuit because of the walls but it is more of a traditional, classic track.

“It has a unique feeling though and it’s a great place for racing. It’s great for drivers and the races are usually very exciting, so I’m looking forward to it.

“The atmosphere is always really good. It’s a great crowd and they seem to really know a lot about F1, which is great.”
