Carlos Sainz continued to impress the paddock with another strong points paying position at the Hungarian Grand Prix.
Sainz finished eight, collecting a solid four points for himself and Toro Rosso.
"A solid race from us today here in Budapest, I'm satisfied with the result. I'm pretty pleased with the race, even if Fernando (Alonso) got past us at the start," he said. "We were able to keep up with McLaren's pace, something that during the practice sessions on Friday and Saturday didn't look like we'd be able to do,It was just impossible to overtake him."
"If you would have told me I'd finish P8 after the bad start to the weekend that we had, I wouldn't have believed it," he continued. "I think we can be very happy and pleased with ourselves - the team did a great job to turn things around and I'd like to thank them for this! We can now go to Germany feeling confident."
Daniil Kvyat has struggled since his demotion from Red Bull and rumours are already hinting at a complete departure from the team at the end of the season. He finished 16th.
"Unfortunately, I have to say this was one of the least enjoyable races I've experienced for quite a while," he said. "We had a very poor start - I had too much wheel spin and there was something wrong with the settings - and that sadly defined the rest of our race. We lost a few positions, went towards the back of the grid and from then on it was very hard to recover and move forward.
"In motorsport you have good days and bad days and this has been one of those negative ones. Luckily the next race is next week, so we can forget about this one quickly and hope for a better one in Germany."
