Kvyat keeping 'eyes open' over F1 future


Toro Rosso driver Daniil Kvyat says he will keep his "eyes open" when it comes to deciding his Formula One future.

Kvyat returned to Toro Rosso early last season after being swapped for Max Verstappen by parent team Red Bull.

The Russian's frustrations were clear following that switch but he kicked off the 2017 campaign with a points finish in Australia, before retiring with a hydraulics problem in China having qualified ninth.

Kvyat's seat was thought to be under threat from reserve driver Pierre Gasly before Toro Rosso opted to stick with the same line-up for 2017, but Kvyat is relaxed about his future beyond the end of this season.

"Right now, I'm not worried, I'm just focusing on my job on track," Kvyat told GP Gazette.

"That's what matters to me.

"Toro Rosso is a very good place to be at the moment. You cannot rule out to be here in the future, either, because it's a competitive team.

"Like I said, if you do well, you just need to keep your eyes open, simple as that."
