Daniil Kvyat excited to race in Italian GP

Monza, Italy: Red Bull driver Daniil Kvyat said he is looking forward to racing at the Formula 1 Italian Grand Prix on September 6 as the Autodromo Nazionale Monza is his favourite track, adding that racing here gives him a special feeling.

"Monza is my favourite track. Every corner just gives you the feeling that you are doing something special. Lesmo I and II, Ascari... every corner. Well, they unfortunately changed Parabolica a little bit. The changes there do make a difference," Kvyat, who finished fourth in the recently held Belgian Grand Prix, said here on Friday.

"It isn't quite the same experience anymore. You still have to push a lot and it still requires a lot of technique, but the problem is that even if you make a mistake you get forgiven. It's not the same. But overall the track is still amazing. An important circuit for me in the past and I love it."

The 21-year-old said he has won here a few times in the early part of his career when he was trying to make his way into Formula 1.

"I won here a few times, in Renault 2.0 (Alps in 2012) and in GP3. In Renault I was on pole and won both races and in GP3 I was on pole, won the feature race and finished second in the sprint race. It's a pretty cool feeling winning there," said the Russian.
