Daniil Kvyat says Eau Rouge has returned to being the corner which calls for the most bravery at Spa-Francorchamps.

The Belgian Grand Prix circuit is a firm favourite among the current F1 drivers, with the Eau Rouge/Radillon section the most iconic on the track. However, with car performance changing every season, different corners have become more challenging.

Asked which corner on the circuit requires the biggest balls, Kvyat replied: "Eau Rouge once again.

"With these cars it’s back to being a bit of a balls out corner – especially in the wet. Pouhon is pretty much and Blanchimont still, but really only in the wet. It’s full of great, flowing, interesting sections."

And Kvyat says he enjoys the "unique" atmosphere of racing in the Ardennes Forest.

"It’s a totally unique feeling. There’s great history there; the atmosphere is amazing. To be honest it’s quite hard to put into words. I like the weather. It always feels like one of the freshest weekends of the year, if that doesn’t sound strange, but it’s cold at night, and the mist and everything adds to the atmosphere."
