Daniil kvyat started the 2020 season of Formula 1 with bad results and a resounding failure on the track. However, as the races went by, the Russian driver showed great confidence and came close to achieving several podiums. After the end of the year, it seems that from the environment of AlphaTauri and Red bull they no longer want to have Kvyat’s services, at least they said so.
After the race of the weekend in which he finished in 11th place, Kvyat faced the microphones of the Spanish chain Movistar F1, and assured that he will not be in Formula 1 in 2021, although he hopes to be in 2022. In addition, he announced that the pilot of Formula 2, the Japanese Yuki tsuonda will be at the controls of AlphaTauri’s car.
They want Tsuonda
I think I won’t be here next year. They have told me that they love Tsunoda and their priority is putting a young driver on the team. I really need a vacation, Formula 1 tires me a lot and especially this environment at AlphaTauri is one of very high pressure, always with young drivers behind. It’s hard. I would like to return in 2022, but we will see it in advance, “confirmed Kvyat.
The Russian pilot assured that next year he will not be in any other category, and that he will take a sabbatical to return. «Now it’s vacation time, just that. Then we will see in 2022. I will try to go back, because I feel that in the right place, with the right people when I am in the car I can be really competitive.
Finally, Kvyat announced that he will continue to be a pilot, even if he is not in competition next year. I still have a lot to give. I am grateful for all these years, also these last two with a team that is fantastic. But it’s a shame I can’t even tell you whether or not I’m going next year. It’s a bit funny, since I’m talking to you here and you still haven’t given me the official confirmation, “he said with a laugh.
