Daniil Kvyat expressed his delight after the Toro Rosso driver finished in the points at the Chinese Grand Prix.

Kvyat finished in 10th place, meaning that the Russian has scored points in three of his four starts in the sport.

"It felt great today and I’m very happy with my performance," he said.

"I had a good start and I managed to make up some positions during the first lap. Our pace was very strong today and I enjoyed the fight with Jenson [Button] pretty much throughout the race.

"We did a good job with the tyre management, so we were able to stay out longer. Even though it all went very well today, I think there’s still a lot more to come from the car, so I’m really looking forward to starting the European part of the season, where I hope to get some more points."

Jean-Eric Vergne could only managed 12th place after dropping down the order at the start.

"As for my race, I had a bad start and a bad first lap," he said. "We need to understand what happened exactly to improve this aspect. After that, I could not make the best out of the option tyres because I was stuck behind Button, so it was not possible to build a gap and pull away.

"It was definitely a tough race but we should not have to forget some positive aspects: we had a really good qualifying yesterday, the general pace was not bad and we know exactly the direction to take in order to improve."
