Daniil Kvyat says Red Bull is searching for "a turning point" in its season and he feels it could come at any moment.
After winning three races last season in the face of Mercedes dominance, Red Bull was confident of being able to challenge more closely this year. However, problems with the Renault power unit - initially with drivability and lately reliability - have hampered those attempts. Kvyat retired from the Chinese Grand Prix and will use the third of his four power units for the season this weekend, but he says he will not get frustrated as he sees how hard the team is working to turn the situation around.
"We are fighters, we are a racing team that wants to win so we keep our mind open for the strong mind-set," Kvyat said. "Whenever could be a turning point so we will just keep doing the maximum and the best from our side."
And Kvyat says he is relishing the challenge of trying to improve Red Bull's fortunes after the difficult start so far.
"Expectations are never good really. We didn’t plan to be where we are now, but sometimes it is good to get a bit of a challenge. Some races open our eyes and issues to address and we now have no choice but to work hard and sort them out. I see the team is doing everything from their side and I am doing everything from my side."
