Kvyat deserves Toro Rosso seat says Coulthard

Daniil Kvyat deserves his place in F1.

Daniil Kvyat deserves his place in F1.

That is the view of former F1 driver David Coulthard, following the claims of other pundits like Jacques Villeneuve who think the young Russian should have been dropped.

"Kvyat has definitely earned a contract extension," the Russian service Sportbox quotes the former McLaren and Red Bull driver as saying.

"Red Bull is not a charitable organisation and they invest heavily in the development of young talent, so they would not have left him in the team for no reason.

"I think he's a great guy. He has excellent speed, but we all know that the main thing is to show it all of the time," Coulthard added.
