Red Bull youngster Daniil Kvyat expressed his happiness after he collected fifth position at his home event in Russia.

Kvyat started the race from 11th place on the grid but made progress and avoided the trouble which affected some of his rivals to secure fifth spot and bag 10 championship points.

"I think we squeezed everything out of it today and 10 points at the end of such a complicated race is a very good achievement, so we have to be satisfied with these points," he said.

"With hindsight, you could say we could have run a slightly better strategy, but you can never be completely sure how these things will turn out and you never stop learning in this respect."

Daniel Ricciardo was on course for a haul of points in the other Red Bull until a late failure.

"I’m happy with how I drove but it’s a shame we don’t have any points to show for it," he said.

"The risky strategy was working well and we were looking good to earn some decent points. We’re not sure what happened, we suspect it’s a suspension issue.

"I came out of Turn 4 and I felt something was not right and I reported back to the team.  The team will investigate the issue but I think considering we weren’t expecting too much from this track, we can be pleased that we were racing with the faster cars of Williams and Ferrari and managed to keep them behind us for a good while."
