Kvyat has recovered after poor start according to Marko

Daniil Kvyat appears to have put his formula one career back on track.

Earlier in 2015, the young Russian's meteoric rise from GP3, Toro Rosso and then Red Bull appeared to have dramatically stalled as he obviously struggled alongside Daniel Ricciardo.

It looked possible the notorious brutality of Red Bull's driver programme could strike Kvyat at the tender age of 21, as Dr Helmut Marko hailed the "two exceptional young drivers" Max Verstappen and Carlos Sainz at Toro Rosso this year.

But after Kvyat's better run continued at Silverstone last weekend, Marko has now been quoted by Spain's El Confidencial: "Daniil Kvyat had a difficult start at Red Bull, mainly due to technical problems.

"But he has recovered now. We can only make the most of what we have and it's difficult to keep a driver motivated if he has these disadvantages with the power," he added.

Marko, a highly outspoken figure, was referring to the Renault engine problems suffered this year by Red Bull.
