Daniil Kvyat is looking to put his disappointing weekend at the Red Bull Ring behind him after seeing his Austrian Grand Prix end after completing just the one lap on Sunday.

The Scuderia Toro Rosso driver had started from the pit lane with a new chassis after crashing out of qualifying when his suspension failed at turn eight, but pulled off the circuit at turn one with an unspecified technical issue on his completely rebuilt car.

“What an unfortunate weekend,” revealed Kvyat. “We started today’s race from the pit-lane, but I was only able to complete one lap before having to retire because of what looks like a mechanical issue – we still need to investigate what the exact reason is.

“It’s painful, but this is racing… Of course today I feel really frustrated, but tomorrow I will wake up and will have found the strength to move on.

“In moments like these I always remember what someone once told me: 90% of being a racing driver is tough but the remaining 10% is so good, that it’s all worth it – let’s just hope that 10% is back in Silverstone next week! We will definitely work hard to make it happen.”
