Daniil Kvyat has played down rumours regarding Red Bull's future in Formula 1, ahead of his home race in Russia this weekend.
Kvyat, 21, joined Red Bull at the start of the year but the outfit has not yet confirmed that he will be retained into 2016, amid wider speculation that the outfit is considering its future in the sport due to the lack of an engine partner.
"It’s not great to hear these rumours and stuff like that of course but on the other side, if you look at it, what can I change?," he said.
"I can drive the car, I can try to put ourselves as high as possible at the finish of a race and then you have to be patient. Formula 1 is a rough world, you have to be patient, you have to consider it’s a honeymoon at some point.
"The beginning of the year was very tough for us and then we started to climb, slowly but surely and we’ve been quite competitive in the last races, I think, so I think everyone has to be patient in the team and I think the right decisions will be taken in the future from our bosses. I’m sure... like I said I rely on them fully."
Kvyat is pessimistic regarding his prospects of collecting a strong result at the Sochi Autodrom, believing that the layout will not suit the RB11 package.
"I think obviously it’s not the easiest track for us, probably it’s not suiting us as good as Singapore or Hungary, but I still think that as has been proven you always have to keep pushing and things can come towards us," he said.
"There are a few long straights here, which probably don’t suit us so well, however we will keep pushing; we will try to maximise our potential, find the right compromise and who knows what can happen in the race."
