Toro Rosso matched Ferrari's pace at Silverstone, says Kvyat
By:

Daniil Kvyat says his Scuderia Toro Rosso squad deserved to get more out of the British Grand Prix - and that it even matched a struggling Ferrari outfit on race pace.

The Russian finished 10th, behind Toro Rosso teammate Carlos Sainz and Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel.

It was only the second point Kvyat has scored since rejoining STR, having earned the same result in Spain.

“We fought our way back to the points,” he said.

“I think we deserved a bit more this weekend, especially my side of the garage. I felt on Friday we had really good pace on our long run.

"[On Sunday] we just stuck on the medium on the car after the intermediate start and then we just went until the end with no major issues.

“Our pace was comparable, I think, with Sebastian’s pace, and I think, if our pace is comparable with Ferrari’s at this track, I think it wasn’t too bad a race. Many things to analyse, but so far it didn’t feel bad.”
