Red Bull driver Daniil Kvyat is wary of avoiding the mistakes which he made during the third practice session at the Japanese Grand Prix, following a lack of running during practice in Russia.
Kvyat described his Saturday morning session in Japan as 'not great', leading to him suffering an enormous accident in qualifying which wrecked his weekend.
With running at a premium following a disrupted opening day of action for his home race at the Sochi Autodrom, Kvyat is aware of the need to enjoy a smooth final practice session on Saturday.
"I hope that we manage to put in some nice laps tomorrow morning, it’s going to be quite an important session as I'm sure everyone will be trying to do as much as possible then," he said.
"Because today was a very irrelevant day third practice will define our qualifying really. In Japan my Saturday morning session was not great which had a significant effect on my qualifying, so we need to aim to have a good session tomorrow."
Team-mate Daniel Ricciardo says Red Bull will have to maximise its track time at a circuit which is unlikely to suit is package.
"Running for no reason made no sense and it was a pretty boring day," he rued.
"We can hope for better weather tomorrow. This is not our most competitive track, but we will do our best, aiming to get through to Q3 and then see what we can do.
"With the lack of track time today, we need to work efficiently tonight, choose a direction to go in and then stick with it."
