Catalunya circuit has great variety: Daniil Kvyat
Barcelona, May 1 (IANS): Formula 1 driver Daniil Kvyat on Friday said the Circuit de Catalunya, which will host the Spanish Grand Prix on May 10, is a venue that holds few secrets for drivers but despite that it is a big challenge.
"Obviously the teams and drivers know the track very well simply through testing. We're there in pre-season and all the drivers do a lot of miles there. However, just because we do a lot of testing there it doesn't mean the track is any less challenging for a driver," said the Russian.
"There's a reason it's used so much and that's because it's got a great variety of corners and a lot of different challenges. For a driver it's a tough track, quite technical but if you get everything right then it's really enjoyable."
Kvyat said that he loves being in Spain and has lived there earlier.
"I know Barcelona well and really like being in Spain. I lived there for three months when I was racing in Formula Renault 2.0 as my team at the time was based there," he said.
"Because I speak Italian it was easy for me to pick up some Spanish and that makes the experience of being there a bit better. I have a lot of friends there and try to hang out a bit when I'm there."
