Kvyat: It's not a good period for me

NEWS STORY
30/07/2016

In the wake of today's qualifying session, Daniil Kvyat looked a broken man.

For the second time in the last four races he had failed to get beyond Q1, while during the same period his Toro Rosso teammate, Carlos Sainz, has made it to Q3.

Having already been dropped by Red Bull in favour of Max Verstappen, who has gone from strength to strength, today Kvyat really looked like a man on borrowed time.

"I had a s**t session," he admitted, according to Motorsport.com. "They weren't good laps. I had a very bad lap with many mistakes. I was expecting to be out of Q1.

"I don't feel great," he continued. "It is not a good period for me. It seems like it is never-ending. I am trying every weekend so much but nothing is working so far, so it needs to be more than that.

"I am not having the most pleasant time for sure, it is not easy. But it is not an excuse. Everyone has hard times and if you're doing nothing about it, you just die.

"I don't know what I need," he admitted. "I just need the feeling in the car to be much better. I cannot remember the last time I had a good feeling with any car, so I don't know what is going on. It seems like my window of working is very narrow. We are working on expanding on it but it is not so easy to show.

"Yesterday it seemed like it could be our race, we found some good things yesterday, but I am not sure if it has played a bit against us and made us a bit too relaxed today, I don't know. When it came to qualifying, it didn't seem a very good feeling or connection with the car, and when I don't have connection with the car, it is hard."
