Kvyat ‘happy to go back’ to China

Date published: April 5 2015

Daniil Kvyat is relishing the challenge of racing at the Shanghai International circuit, a track where he scored points in his debut season.

Kvyat, who joined Red Bull Racing from Toro Rosso in the off season, has not had the best of start to his time in the big league.

He was unable to race in Australia as his RB11 broke down on the way to the grid while a lack of pace in Malaysia meant he finished down in ninth place.

The Russian racer, though, is hoping for better next weekend in China.

"The start of the lap is always really tough and it's very easy to get wrong," he said in his assessment of the circuit.

"The lap starts with a big test but the big thing is to find a good rhythm through it. That's the case everywhere there really.

"The long straight is good and the heavy braking zone at the end of that is interesting. It’s a pretty good circuit, wide open, you can really push hard all the way through."

He added: "I had a good race there last year and managed to get a points finish, so I’m happy to go back."
