Daniil Kvyat has been backed to make a success of a second stint with Red Bull, if he were to be drafted in to replace the struggling Pierre Gasly, according to his current boss Toro Rosso team principal Franz Tost.
Gasly's position in the senior Red Bull team has come under increased scrutiny in recent weeks as he struggles to adapt to the team.
Kvyat returned to the Red Bull fold for 2019, having spent last year as a Ferrari development driver after being kicked out of Toro Rosso in 2017, a year and a half on from his own demotion from Red Bull.
Although his career has been as tumultuous as most, Tost believes Kvyat can still be a success in a top team.
"No, I don't see it as a loss of face," Tost told the 'Starting Grid' podcast of his potential return.
