Kvyat convinced "I am the best" after "perfect" Russian GP
Daniil Kvyat has made the bold claim he is "the best" Formula 1 driver after finishing eighth in his home grand prix.
After being promoted to 11th on the grid after Alex Albon was hit with a five-place grid penalty for a gearbox change, the AlphaTauri driver then made the most of an aggressive strategy to score his third consecutive points finish.
Kvyat claimed eighth at the Sochi Autodrom, just eight-tenths of a second behind Renault's Esteban Ocon.
“I know that if I get it right on Sunday I am the best and I can fly, and this was exactly this day," boasted Kvyat.
"I got everything right with my engineers, the set-up, the strategy. Once I was in clean air I felt that this was my race.”
