Daniil Kvyat says he’s reached a new level of performance since returning to Toro Rosso, the team which dropped him before the end of the 2017 season.Monaco Grand Prix, Kvyat said he is “in very good form” at the moment.
“I’m very happy with how things are going for me. I’m driving better than I’ve ever been, so I hope it will bring very good things in the near future.”
Although Toro Rosso scored its best result of the season so far at Monaco, one of F1’s most unusual tracks, Kvyat believes the team can expect to be competitive on a broad range of circuits.
“We’ve been good in every track this year. We’ve been improving after Australia onwards very well. Already in the race in Australia at some point I was the fastest car on the track and then it’s just getting better and better.
“In Bahrain maybe we understood what I don’t like from the car and we managed to improve things better and better. We did a lot of good things to understand, to analyse.
“I don’t think it’s just track related because I think we were the fastest midfield team in Barcelona as well and here we are as well in the mix. So I think this is that we are getting better and better.”
Having been narrowly beaten to first in the midfield fight by Carlos Sainz Jnr in Monaco, Kvyat believes the team can compete for a similar position in Canada.
“How things have been going, if we find the right balance we can again be in the mix for the ‘best of the rest’, hopefully. So if we do our job well I think we can be competitive there.”
