Daniil Kvyat: “Shanghai itself is very unique”

Daniil Kvyat is looking forward to next weekend’s Chinese Grand Prix when the 2016 Formula 1 World Championship heads to Shanghai.

For the Red Bull Racing driver, this will only be the third time racing at the Shanghai International Circuit, but Kvyat thinks this circuit is a technical one, with unique corners and fast changes of directions that make the circuit challenging to drive.

“I think the Shanghai Circuit is actually a really interesting and technical track,” said Kvyat. “Turn One is a unique corner and the fast changes of direction in the middle of the lap are challenging. My first race there was in 2014 and we had a wet qualifying which made it challenging as we had very different conditions for the race.

“Shanghai itself is very unique and a really big city. I used to live in Moscow which is big but it doesn’t compare to the size of Shanghai. I think it’s quite an international city, with many things going on there and some nice food. The river that runs through the city is so massive it actually looks like an ocean.

“The fans in China are also very passionate, we have a great group of fans there. I even saw some of them in Australia and they gave me some nice presents. It’s very cool to get this kind of support.”
