Daniil Kvyat qualified eighth for the Canadian Grand Prix at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, and felt he got the most out of his Infiniti Red Bull Racing machine on Saturday.
The young Russian driver, who had his best finish of the season last time out in Monaco, out-qualified team-mate Daniel Ricciardo in Canada, and hopes to be able to take a good result in the race on Sunday if he can stay out of trouble and avoid any reliability issues on his RB11.
“It wasn’t an easy qualifying but we got the maximum out of the car we could today,” said Kvyat. “We have to keep pushing as we want to be further up the grid; we have a lot of work to do to be as competitive on the straights as our rivals.
“We knew this track wasn’t going to be easy for us, nevertheless, it’s a competitive position we’re starting from and anything can happen in the race as we have seen in the past.”
