Daniil Kvyat says the initial pace of Red Bull's RB12 at the Australian Grand Prix is promising but remains wary that the picture was distorted due to wet weather.

Kvyat was second to Lewis Hamilton in the opening session, with team-mate Daniel Ricciardo, before he rounded out the top 10 in the second session.

Both sessions were affected by wet weather, with only a narrow window of dry running available early in the afternoon.

"Everything went well today I think, the car felt good out of the box so it’s promising," he said.

"Obviously there wasn’t much running but it was the same for everyone and every lap we tried to take the most out of it, to learn as much as we could and we can put this data in our pocket for qualifying tomorrow and for Sunday.

"There’s not many indications from today, it’s impossible to predict what others were doing, what they’re going to do and so on, and so it wouldn’t be wise to draw any kind of conclusions.

"We still don’t know what the weather will be like tomorrow so we just have to be patient and see what the day will bring us."
