Red Bull has confirmed that Daniil Kvyat will keep his drive for 2016 as the team praised his ‘strong legs’ and ‘stout soled shoes’.

Speaking candidly at the Mexican Grand Prix, boss Christian Horner said the Russian driver had ‘excellent ankle stamina’ and spoke highly of his ‘ability to scuttle’.

Horner also sang the praises of Kvyat’s team mate, Daniel Ricciardo, noting that he has ‘the required level of knee fitness’ and is ‘excellent at making pretend engine noises’.

When asked about Red Bull’s ongoing power unit supply problem for next year, Horner smiled enigmatically and said he had ‘something in mind’.
