Jean Todt says he is happy to see Russian driver Daniil Kvyat back in Formula 1.

Kvyat lost his place in the Red Bull programme last year and has since been a Ferrari development driver. He will replace Pierre Gasly at Toro Rosso in 2019.

'He will have a good performance'

"He is a very talented driver which he has demonstrated already. My son is his manager, and I am glad that he has come back to F1.

"He will have a good chassis and a good engine so I'm sure he will have a good performance," FIA president Todt told Tass news agency.

Todt has a different view to those who think Kvyat's career has been characterised by key mistakes.

"He had comparatively few mistakes. And if he is in F1, that means he is a very talented driver.

"If you make a lot of mistakes, you simply won't be in F1. If you are there it is because you perform," said the Frenchman.
