Daniil Kvyat (STR11-03, Car 26)

Franz Tost (Team Principal):


"After facing two failures on the rear rim of Daniil's car today, it was decided to avoid sending Carlos out on track again because we still haven't understood 100% where the problem is coming from. We will now work hard tonight, together with the engineers back in Faenza, and hopefully we will sort it out for tomorrow."
