Daniil Kvyat continues his ascension up the Formula 1 World Championship standings after notching up a second top six finish of the season in the British Grand Prix.

A more competitive race for the Red Bull Racing team than of late, Kvyat enjoyed a positive start as he battled with Sebastian Vettel initially, even planting a move on his predecessor for seventh through Luffield early on, only to lose the position again through the pit-stop window.

Despite this, Kvyat would keep the Ferraris honest all afternoon and, save for a quick spin in worsening weather conditions, would get remarkably close to overtaking Valtteri Bottas for fifth place late on.
