Russian pilot Daniel Quat told about how to it was home race at Sochi Autodrom.
“I’m not the best way started and lost a little time, – quotes Kvyat, who finished 12th, the press service of the Toro Rosso. During my pit stop, managed to get ahead of Kevin Magnussen, but then cut me off lance Stroll. During the second segment I, unfortunately, lost a lot of time due to blue flags, passing the leaders on the circle.
I would like to clarify my first comments, said after the finish. Perhaps these words were too hard on the team. But after talking with the engineers, I realized why I was so early called to the pit stop. It was not easy to make a decision, also in that time no one knew that leaders will stay on track for so long.
On the positive side, the final part of the race was excellent – clean the track, the car looked great! Now we need to make sure that the car was as good in the next race.”
Partner Kvyat at Toro Rosso Carlos Sainz finished tenth.
“Very tough race, especially I lost a few positions penalty on the starting grid. But we managed to do it right: start, first lap, pit stop, strategy. So we can be happy, commented the Spaniard. – I had a good race, rising from 14th to 10th place, and I think he achieved the maximum in this weekend.
After the pit stop I was alone and just had to control the break from Stroll that I was able to do.
Must say looking forward to the next stage, which will be held in Barcelona. I’ve always played well at this track and the home race in front of their home crowd is always a special event.”
