Red Bull protege Daniil Kvyat reckons he did all he could in his first test outing to prove he has a future in Formula 1.
The 19-year-old Russian completed 22 laps for Toro Rosso at Silverstone on Friday to finish 11th fastest.
Asked by Autosport if he felt the test had brought him closer to an F1 seat, Kvyat replied: "Today made my dream even bigger.
"My first dream was to drive an F1 car. Today it's done, and now after this session I feel like with more mileage I should get more comfortable with the car and I'm confident I could be quick in this car.
"Unfortunately it's really limited for young drivers these days but hopefully my job has not gone unnoticed. I'm sure it hasn't.
"For now, it's not up to me. My main concern is the championships I'm racing in.
"I did the best I could today. We had a few issues, but I think the team saw what they needed to from me.
"I need a bit more time to analyse what happened today. I can't tell if I'm ready [for F1] next year, tomorrow, or whenever.
"For sure one day I want to be in F1 - today I understood this."
There will be changes in the line-ups of Red Bull's Formula 1 teams next year. Mark Webber's imminent departure has raised the possibility of Daniel Ricciardo graduating from Toro Rosso to Red Bull and leaving his spot vacant.
But Kvyat says he is staying focused on his own racing duties in both GP3 and the European Formula 3 Championship.
"I'm not giving it too much attention at the moment," he added.
"It's not really my business so far, but of course I keep an eye on it."
