Daniil Kvyat kept up his record of scoring points in every British Grand Prix he has competed in after recovering from his disappointing qualifying to finish tenth on Sunday.

The Scuderia Toro Rosso driver felt he had a competitive afternoon around the Silverstone circuit, and was less than six seconds behind the Ferrari of Sebastian Vettel at the chequered flag.

Kvyat believed that he deserved an even better result on race day, and is looking to build on the positive vibes taken from Silverstone into future events.

“I think today’s race wasn’t a bad one – we managed to fight our way back nicely through the field, keep up with Ferrari and end up in the points, which was our target,” said Kvyat.

“We looked very competitive and actually I’d say that we deserved more points today. This is a good sign after a very long unlucky period! Personally, I am happy – I finally had a good day at a racing track and it’s a long time since I felt this.

“I’m sure that we will now learn from these positive moments and carry them with us all the way through to the end of the season. I look forward to the next race in Hungary!”
