Daniil Kvyat says he will not be disappointed to remain at Toro Rosso for the 2020 Formula 1 season should he miss out on the sole-remaining seat at Red Bull.

Red Bull motorsport advisor Helmut Marko said over the Singapore Grand Prix weekend that either Pierre Gasly or Alexander Albon will take the spare seat to partner Max Verstappen at the Milton Keynes squad for next season

When made aware of Marko’s comments, Kvyat responded: “If he said this, that its like that. So... my thoughts are positive. And I keep working.

Asked if he is disappointed by the decision, he replied: “Not really, no. I’ve done my work. Whatever work they give me, I do it.

“They give me work in Toro Rosso, I'll do my job in Toro Rosso as good as possible. If they give me a job somewhere else, I'll try to do my job as good as possible somewhere else.

“I just do my job. Someone else's experience also could have been in my place. I don't know. I didn't give it too much thought.

“I just do my job, and I don't think too deeply about if I am experienced or not.”

Gasly had been promoted to Red Bull over the winter following Daniel Ricciardo’s bombshell decision to join Renault, but the Frenchman lasted just 12 races before being replaced by Alexander Albon following a tough start to 2019.

Albon finished fifth on his Red Bull debut at Spa, before taking sixth in Italy and Singapore. Since returning to Toro Rosso, Gasly has outscored teammate Kvyat, though the Russian has a podium finish to his name this season thanks to his impressive drive to third in Germany.
