No Nascar move for Daniil Kvyat

European Nascar chief Jerome Galpin plays down suggestions Daniil Kvyat is set to move to the series next year.

European Nascar chief Jerome Galpin has played down suggestions that Daniil Kvyat is set to move to the series next year.

Kvyat, the Toro Rosso refugee, tested a European Nascar during the "recruitment tests" at Italy's Franciacorta circuit.

Galpin told France's Auto Hebdo: "He enjoyed driving the car without these extra systems that are in Formula 1.

"But they were tests purely for pleasure. Daniil is still focused on a career in Formula one, and his plans do not include moving to a Nascar series."

Kvyat is currently without an F1 team, having been dropped by Toro Rosso.
