Daniil Kvyat says he is determined to prove his potential with Toro Rosso when Formula 1 visits Montreal this weekend for the Canadian Grand Prix.

Kvyat finished on the podium in China but was demoted from Red Bull to Toro Rosso after four races in order to make way for Max Verstappen.

Kvyat qualified inside the top 10 in Monaco but a technical problem during the early laps left him a lap down, before retiring in the wake of a collision with Renault's Kevin Magnussen.

The Russian youngster was handed a three-place grid penalty for the upcoming race after stewards deemed he caused the incident with Magnussen, but is nonetheless confident of proving his worth.

"The frustration from last week's race in Monaco is now forgotten and has made me even more determined to show what I'm capable of doing," said Kvyat.

"Since I got back home all my focus has been on this week's Canadian Grand Prix.

"I'd describe the Montreal track as one where you are always bouncing on the different kerbs – they are very high and there are quite a few of them."

Kvyat retired from the Canadian Grand Prix on his first attempt in 2014 but placed ninth last year while racing for Red Bull.
