Daniil Kvyat: I just missed out on the final podium spot

Date:

Daniil Kvyat narrowly missed out on a podium finish at the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix, finishing in fourth place thanks to a superb drive at the Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari.

While the Russian excelled in Imola, it was a disappointing day for his Scuderia AlphaTauri teammate Pierre Gasly, who had started the race in fourth place, but had to retire after just eight laps due to an issue with his car.

Max Verstappen was also unable to finish after a puncture brought a premature end to his race when he was in second, while Aston Martin Red Bull Racing teammate Alex Albon spun when in sixth place and eventually finished in 15th place. 

“It was a very good and fun race, the car felt amazing and I really enjoyed myself out there! The Safety Car restart was very important, and I managed to overtake a few cars on that lap. Unfortunately, Daniel managed to warm up his tyres so even if I pushed very hard until the end to overtake him, I just missed out on the final podium spot.

It’s a shame but I’m still very satisfied with my driving and happy with the team’s job. We recovered small points to Ferrari in the Constructors’ Championship, so I hope we can give them a little fight until the end.”, – said D. Kvyat.
