Kvyat: Should be an interesting weekend
3 June 2014 – Daniil Kvyat is expecting an 'interesting weekend' in Canada as he takes to the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve for the very first time.
Kvyat has made the step up to Formula 1 this season and until Monaco last time out, when he was forced out due to an exhaust failure, he had finished every race, taking points in Australia, Malaysia and China.
He is now looking forward to discovering Montreal and going to Canada for the very first time.
"The Gilles Villeneuve Circuit is another one on the calendar where I have never raced before," said the 2013 GP3 Champion in the countdown to the seventh round in the 2014 Formula 1 World Championship.
"In preparation, I've watched a few Canadian Grand's Prix on television, especially the on-board footage and a few days ago, I also spent several hours in the simulator preparing for it."
"My first impression is that it's going to be an interesting weekend," he continued. "The track has a lot of stop and go sections, as well as the hairpin and chicanes. It's going to be challenging and as always, it's going to be about finding the right rhythm and putting the lap together."
"It's a bit like Monaco, as there is not much run-off area, but after my first experience of Monaco nothing seems difficult now!" concluded the Scuderia Toro Rosso pilot.
