Daniil Kvyat says that this weekend's Russian Grand Prix will be a 'special' moment, although acknowledges that events at Suzuka will overshadow the inaugural race.

Kvyat will be the only Russian driver on the grid at Sochi but is aware that last weekend's serious accident for Jules Bianchi will cast a shadow over events.

"Quite mixed feelings as you see here the atmosphere and all our thoughts are still about Japan," he said

"So, I think it will be like this for a while.

"Another side of course, it's my home Grand Prix. I'm pleased to see what I see here. Big structures, big track and I think around 10 years ago, when I was starting my career, we couldn't have even dreamed about this; not this thing becoming reality.

"So, obviously it's a special moment for me and the first time racing in Russia. In the end it's our work and we carry on doing what we've been doing for such a long time."
