Moscow, June 12 (IANS)
Formula One team Red Bull's driver Daniil Kvyat believes the Austrian Grand Prix circuit is one of the best tracks on the calendar and says he loves racing on it.
Austria returned to the calendar last year for the first time in over a decade and the track was re-named as the Red Bull ring. This year, the race will take place on June 21.
"I raced there in Formula Renault and also in Formula 3. It's great fun to drive. Actually, I think it is one of the best circuits on the calendar. It's fast, it flows well, the lap is pretty busy. It's a good circuit and I have good memories of it," Kvyat said in a statement released on Friday.
"I really enjoy the track; it's a really good circuit. I already knew the track well as I had raced there before in junior series, so I was really looking forward to going back," he said.
Kvyat also insisted the huge amount of attention -- with Red Bull being the home team -- would not be much of a problem.
"It should be OK. I was at Toro Rosso last year so we didn't have too much pressure from a media point of view, certainly not as much as the Red Bull Racing guys, so it was pretty easy from my point of view.
"But it's a good atmosphere and the team's home race is obviously important. However, I don't think you can let it distract you. It's just racing in the end and I'll try to enjoy the weekend as much as possible," he said.
