Red Bull matched Ferrari pace – Kvyat

Daniil Kvyat is expecting Red Bull to challenge F1 pacesetter Mercedes later in 2016.

The Russian surprised with his podium finish in China last weekend, the day after teammate Daniel Ricciardo qualified on the front row of the grid.

“I believe the Red Bull is the best chassis on the grid,” works Renault driver Kevin Magnussen told the Danish newspaper Ekstra Bladet.

And so with Renault expected to dramatically improve Red Bull’s Tag Heuer-branded power unit in the coming weeks, Kvyat is confident of more podium finishes.

“Sunday’s race has given us a lot of confidence,” Kvyat is quoted by Russia’s Sportbox. “I think our pace was almost comparable to Ferrari’s, and we have proved we are already the third team.

“Mercedes is still a long way ahead of us, but we are planning large updates around the Canada race,” the 21-year-old added.

“Perhaps they will allow us to compete on an even footing with Mercedes.”
