Daniil Kvyat not impressed with Alex Albon at the 2019 Italian Grand Prix

For the second successive race, Daniil Kvyat is not impressed with the speed of his former Toro Rosso team-mate Alexander Albon.

Since joining Red Bull during the summer break, it seems as if Kvyat is not Albon's biggest fan and the Russian driver believes he could've kept the Thai driver behind him at the Italian Grand Prix at the weekend.

Kvyat was ahead of Albon, but an oil leak towards the end of the race meant the former Red Bull man had to retire from the race early. Kvyat believes he could've finished in sixth and ahead of Albon if it wasn't for the unfortunate leakage.

"I can only say it was going to be a great race for us," Kvyat told Will Buxton in the Paddock Pass. "I sat with the Red Bulls at that time. A fifth or sixth place was absolutely possible for us.

"It is very disappointing, but it is part of our sport. Sometimes you can show something great, but the car stops. I drove the same lap times as Albon. I also had fresher tyres, so I was very confident that I could keep him behind me."
