Daniil Kvyat says he was “on the edge of too young” for Formula 1 when he made his debut at the age of 19.
The Russian driver first appeared in Formula 1 back in 2014 as team-mate to Jean-Eric Vergne at Toro Rosso.
And he admits that certain things which frustrated him back then don’t anymore at the age of 26.
Kvyat himself believes that he was “on the edge of too young” to debut in Formula 1 back in 2014 at 19 years old.
Speaking on the In The Pink podcast, he said: “Sometimes like in the past (media work) was bothering me quite a lot. But now I’ve just grown to learn that this is part of the job.
“To be honest it can still be sometimes frustrating, of course, you can have a bad day and you’re always going to have a not so good day in our sport, especially with so many races.
“Sometimes something will not go your way, and that’s OK, you need to explain and pull yourself forward and live with that and turn the page. So it’s normal.
“Of course when I’m in F1 since I’m 19 years old and in the beginning it’s again very young, maybe on the edge of too young, but then now I see it differently.
“The things that used to irritate me, don’t really irritate me anymore.”
