Kvyat counting on new approach to achieve good results on track

Daniil Kvyat has promised a new driving approach during his third spell in Formula 1, as he prepares for the start of the 2019 F1 season.

After a year on the outskirts of F1, Kvyat returns with a point to prove, with Dr Helmut Marko deeming the Russian driver worthy of another Formula 1 stint, this time at Toro Rosso.

Kvyat revealed he felt "anxious" before the post-season test in Abu Dhabi last year, because he did not know exactly where he stood.

"I was, to be fair, slightly anxious before the test," Kvyat admitted to GP Fans in Barcelona last week. "I had been a long time away from an F1 car and from F1, from track action, let's put it this way. It wasn't an easy few days leading up to it, but really happy days in another way also.

"Also (there was) a question mark of how things would go after so long away - generally, the driving. Within five laps I was back to normal, and like Franz (Tost, team principal at Toro Rosso) said, it didn't feel like I had been away."

"I think things are different to when I was here last," Kvyat continued. "I think it was good in away to have this year to put things together and to reflect on things, try to become better as a driver.

"Hopefully the things I've changed in my approach to work in general and to driving will also be very well reflected on the track."
