Kvyat denies need for psychologist

Daniil Kvyat has played down suggestions he might benefit from employing a psychologist.

Amid his own career turmoil a few years ago, Romain Grosjean turned to a sports psychologist for help and is now regarded as one of F1’s best drivers.

“No,” Russian Kvyat said in Montreal when asked if he has thought about doing the same.

The 22-year-old recently lost his seat at Red Bull and since then has suggested he might move away from the energy drink company completely beyond 2016.

But Kvyat insists: “I was able to cope with the situation surprisingly well. A psychologist would help you focus on the main things but I’m doing that already.

“I believe you need to solve the problems in your life by yourself,” he added.

However, some believe Kvyat’s most recent behaviour has lessened the chance he might hang onto his Toro Rosso seat for 2017, just as the team is set to switch to more competitive Renault power.

“I already spoke on this subject in Monaco and it’s still relevant,” he said.

“For now I’m fully concentrated on this season and I will think about the future later.”

Kvyat’s teammate Carlos Sainz on Thursday sounded more open to staying at Toro Rosso in 2017.

“Toro Rosso is already good place to be and next year with the Renault engine it looks even better,” he is quoted by the Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf.

“It’s still early but everything seems to be going well,” Sainz added.
