Daniil Kvyat has called for both Toro Rosso and Honda to improve further in 2020 after the team enjoyed a strong 2019 season. 

Red Bull’s sister team have enjoyed one of their best year’s, finishing P6 in the Constructors’ Championship and taking two podiums.

Kvyat, who got one of them in Germany with a P3 finish, was pleased with both the engine and the chassis but thinks the team can still improve.

“Honda made a big step this year, and next year if it can be even more of a step then it’d be great,” Kvyat said as per gptoday.net.

“From that point, I’m not too worried. I think the progress was good. The chassis was similar. We have to keep working and improving our package.”

The 2021 regulations will most likely shake things and give midfield teams a chance to fight at the top. There are no such changes for 2020 though, and Kvyat says that his team, soon to be known as Alpha Tauri, need to be at their best for another midfield battle.

“It doesn’t seem like there will be a very big regulation change next year in any era so we need to be on top of our game to improve the car as much as we can,” he added.

“Hopefully, we can do that. We can’t set any exact expectations.

“We will probably be around the midfield zone again. It’s going to be tight again, but we’ll try to do our best to be as high up the order as we can.”
