I’m still friends with Marko and Horner – Kvyat

Daniil Kvyat’s future in F1 is not as secure as that of his current Toro Rosso teammate Carlos Sainz.

It is believed Sainz is on the cusp of having a one-year contract extension triggered by Toro Rosso owner Red Bull, even though the Spanish daily Marca reports that Renault is also interested in the 21-year-old.

“He deserves a better seat,” Livio Oricchio, a respected Brazilian correspondent, is quoted as saying by another Spanish sports daily, AS.

But while Sainz is weighing up between Toro Rosso and Renault, the fate of his Toro Rosso teammate Daniil Kvyat is much less clear.

Earlier, the young Russian was demoted by Red Bull in favour of Max Verstappen, and now there are rumours Kvyat, 22, is looking around for a seat for 2017.

“At the moment I have nothing in this area to report,” he told the Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf.

“But everyone talks to one another. My phone is always on,” said Kvyat.

Awkwardly for Kvyat, his career has always been guided by Red Bull, but the goings-on of 2016 have created a rift.

“I’m still friends with Helmut Marko and Christian Horner,” he insists, “although things are somewhat different.

“I have people around me who can help me, for the details. But my phone is mine and I can make my own decisions,” Kvyat added.

For now, Kvyat said he is determined to make the most of the remaining 13 races of 2016 with Toro Rosso.

“There are some real classics coming up where it will become clear how good we really are. I don’t call it a deadline but it’s an important point,” he said.
