Are you afraid of Dr Hel­mut Marko (the head of Red Bull’s Young Driver Pro­gramme)?

F1 Racing - - YOU ASK THE QUESTIONS - Piotr Üwik, Poland

Well, that would be the wrong ap­proach. In the be­gin­ning you feel some pres­sure from his side be­cause he de­mands a lot. But once you get to know him and de­liver what he is ask­ing from you – which isn’t al­ways easy, be­cause he’s ask­ing for wins and top re­sults – and once you un­der­stand how he is, I found that I got on well with him and I had a lot of re­spect for him. Def­i­nitely I’m not afraid of him. We have a good work­ing re­la­tion­ship and now we’ll be col­lab­o­rat­ing more closely. F1R: Can you re­mem­ber when he last shouted at you? DK: When I was in For­mula BMW. F1R: What did you do? DK: I was driv­ing like shit! Like I said, he is fair with you. If you are do­ing a shit job, he will point it out to you.

Kvyat with the no­to­ri­ously hard-toplease Dr Hel­mut Marko: “He is fair with you. If you are do­ing a shit job, he will point it out to you”
