Kvyat relishes Catalunya return

Kvyat relishes Catalunya return

Ahead of this week's Spanish Grand Prix, Toro Rosso rookie Daniil Kvyat is looking forward to return to a track he has "learned many valuable lessons" during his fledgling career.

The European leg of the Formula One season starts at the Circuit de Catalunya this week and the Russian is pleased to have the opportunity to compete at a track he has excelled at during his time in other formulae.

"Like all the drivers, I have spent a lot of time at this circuit, racing and testing," Kvyat told crash.net ahead of this week's Spanish Grand Prix.

"I've had some good results there, I particularly remember a Eurocup race in 2011, when I started from twentieth and finished third. There were also some painful memories, when I lost the Eurocup there one year later, but overall, I have learned many valuable lessons at the Catalunya circuit."

Although the 20-year-old is clearly comfortable around the Barcelona circuit, he is unsure how quick his Toro Rosso STR9 will be there this week.

"I'm looking forward to being back in Europe and having some shorter flights. It will all feel more familiar to me," he added.

Here at this track, you need to find the right compromise between the high speed and slow sections, so finding the right balance in the set-up is the key to a quick lap.

"I have no idea how the track will suit the STR9, except that so far this year, we have been okay in the high speed corners. We won't know until Friday."
