Daniil Kvyat is excited to be returning to the legendary circuit that is Spa-Francorchamps after the three-week Summer break.

The Scuderia Toro Rosso driver had a disappointing German Grand Prix after he finished in fifteenth, behind team-mate Carlos Sainz Jr. Kvyat believed it was a tough race with the car lacking grip and power in straight lines.

Kvyat enjoys the different aspects of the Belgian circuit mostly with Eau Rouge, a corner which he really enjoys. The Russian likes the high-speed and fast flowing corners and believes these aspects make it very exciting for the drivers.

“When I think of Spa-Francorchamps, the first thing that comes to my mind is Eau Rouge,” said Kvyat. “It’s a corner I really enjoy and where you need to be brave and go for it!

“The straight after that is quite long and a good spot to try and overtake your rivals. You then arrive to Turns 5 and 6, a fast chicane, and you then need to prepare the exit out of Turn 7 well. Turns 12 and 13 form another fast chicane, and the exit out of Turn 14 is important as you then drive flat out until the end of the lap.

“This is a very special track which I really enjoy; it’s high-speed, full of elevation changes and with many fast-flowing corners which make it very exciting for the driver. The second sector in particular is the part I enjoy the most, as it includes a lot of cool corners. I can’t wait to race there again!”
