Max Verstappen has backed Red Bull's decision to resurrect the career of axed Russian Daniil Kvyat.

In 2016, Red Bull demoted Kvyat from its senior team to Toro Rosso, and by the end of the following year, he was dropped from Formula 1 altogether.

'He has experience'

Now 24, the Russian has been rebuilding his career with a testing role at Ferrari, and Verstappen thinks Red Bull was right to sign him up for Toro Rosso for 2019.

"He has experience, he knows the teams and they know him. That's all very useful next year, when Toro Rosso will have some more Red Bull parts. I think it's the right choice," Verstappen added.

"I would not know who else should be there. There's no one in the Red Bull programme with enough license points. Daniil has not driven for a while, but I think it's possible he has still developed as a driver," the Dutchman continued.
