Daniil Kvyat wants to forget about his future in F1 in order to focus on delivering strong results for Toro Rosso this season.
Having been moved from Red Bull to Toro Rosso ahead of the Spanish Grand Prix, Kvyat admitted he is considering life away from the Red Bull teams after a frustrating weekend in Monaco. While it has been confirmed Toro Rosso will switch back to Renault power units next season, Kvyat says he is trying to focus on performing for the team rather than worrying about his future.
“I said everything in Monaco so my words are valid,” Kvyat said. “I am focusing on the present and what will be there for me in the future, consider it and if it looks attractive enough I will take that. Simple as that. I want to focus on my own thing now today and think about tomorrow later.
“I keep it in my mind but I’m not focusing on it. I feel very good at the moment at Toro Rosso and want to give it all until the last moment to give it the best of me. Then I think if I do enough of a good job then we’ll see what happens. I don’t have a clue on that yet.”
Asked if he has looked into the possibility of using a psychologist to help him following a difficult few months, Kvyat replied: “No, I am just focusing on my own things.
“I find it surprisingly easy to get on with it and just doing my thing. That is what I focus on and I don’t think you need a psychologist to help you try to focus on your own thing.
“That is what I was doing in Monaco. I probably didn’t know the limit of the car so maybe I didn’t put a good lap in for qualifying Q3 but not race by race things are getting closer and I am completely fine. I think you should always sort your shit out in your life by yourself.”
