    Daniil Kvyat says he feared he would lose his Formula One seat at Toro Rosso for 2017 heading into this years summer break.On Saturday it was confirmed that Kvyat would remain with Toro Rosso for next season. The Russian was replaced at Red Bull by Max Verstappen after just four races this year and endured a difficult mid-season, admitting at the German Grand Prix that his struggles felt never ending.I had a bit of a drop down on my performance in the middle of the year, obviously for various reasons, Kvyat explained. At that point it looked like I wouldnt be in [Toro Rosso] really if I continued like that.Then I managed to get everything together after the summer break and it was a very important few races because in Red Bull, if you have a trust from them you can be sure its because you are a very good driver.Following the August break, and rumours that he could be replaced by Red Bull young driver Pierre Gasly at Toro Rosso for next year, Kvyat enjoyed a revitalised run of form, highlighted in Singapore with a gutsy drive to ninth place. Kvyat reckons his performances in recent races was the catalyst in securing his place on the F1 grid for next season.I knew that if I did a good job with good results they are going to keep me, so thats what I did after the summer break and even if it was very difficult with this power unit issues and so on, the only real opportunity to shine was Singapore.To be honest there was quite a lot of pressure because I knew that was the only place with some good opportunities and I delivered there. There were a few good qualifyings after that and I felt again back to my normal.In Singapore everything came together and it all felt good again. It felt like my whole motivation, my whole spark came back and I felt very comfortable again in what I was doing and I really started to enjoy it.When asked if he feels like he has been handed a second chance following his troubles this year, Kvyat -- who will enter his fourth F1 season in 2017 -- replied: It does in a way, yes, because this year has been incredibly long and rocky. Its good to settle down now and get this chance because next year everything starts from zero.Its a new car, a new opportunity and a new season. So of course Im going to do my absolute best to use this chance as well as possible and it all comes together much better now. Dion Sims Jersey. LOUIS -- The New Orleans Saints looked like a team playing out the string. John Timu Jersey. After dropping their final six games of December, the Wild opened the new calendar year with four consecutive wins. Following a loss to Colorado on Saturday, Minnesota rebounded the following night to blank Nashville 4-0, but then had the tables turned on them Tuesday. One game after a miserable showing in Oklahoma City, Gay tied a career high with 41 points and the Sacramento Kings cruised to a 114-97 victory at the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday night. Kylie Fitts Jersey. Varlamov made 33 saves and Ryan OReilly had a goal and scored in the shootout as the Avalanche beat the New Jersey Devils 2-1 on Thursday night. Bilal Nichols Jersey. - The Washington Redskins have cut defensive lineman Adam Carriker and punter Sav Rocca.Air Force Blue is expected to have little problem in seeing out the mile trip for the first time as he bids to give trainer Aidan OBrien a record-breaking eighth success in the QIPCO 2000 Guineas at Newmarket on Saturday. Although the three-year-old - whose stablemates Air Vice Marshal, Bravery and Shogun also remain possible starters - has yet to race beyond seven furlongs, connections believe the additional furlong should pose no problems to the triple Group One winner.Reported to have wintered very well, the son of War Front, winner of last years Phoenix Stakes, National Stakes and Dewhurst, is the 8/13 favourite with Sky Bet to make a winning return to action on the Rowley Mile. Speaking at a Newmarket media event on Monday, Kevin Buckley, UK Representative for owners Coolmore, said: He has wintered very well, developed, strengthened and his training regime has gone perfectly, so we are all happy. It has been faultless, I believe.The only question is that has never run over a mile before, but I dont think its really a flaw.Given his physical make-up and how he has developed and how he performed on the Rowley Mile last year, there is every reason to believe everything will be fine.Clearly there has to be some form of concern as he has never done it before, but his training and physique suggests that it should be fine. Until he comes here and does it we wont know for definite.While it is all systems go for Air Force Blue, trainer Hugo Palmer said on Monday that Galileo Gold will only take his place in the line-up should the ground be good or softer.After winning the Vintage Stakes at Glorious Goodwood last year, the Paco Boy colt ended the campaign finishing third in the Prix Jean-Luc Lagardere at Longchamp in October.Although not seen out so far this year, the Al Shaqab Racing-owned three-year-old posted an impressive piece of work in a racecourse gallop at the track before racing at the Craven meeting earlier this month.The Newmarket handler said: I had a long chat with Frankie Dettori before the weekend about which direction to go.There are 15 days between the two races (English and French 2000 Guineas). There is nothing to stop any of the horses running in the English Guineas turning upp in France.ddddddddddddFrankie feels that if the ground was fast the speedier horses might do him for toe in the dip and he would be fast finishing, wherever he is, coming up the hill.On good ground or slower ,Frankie believes he has got a real strong chance. With that in mind, if the ground is good ground or slower he will take his chance at Newmarket, and depending on what happens Deauville or the Curragh (Irish Guineas) would remain an option after that.Blue De Vega is stated to be 50-50 to take his chance after pleasing connections in a workout at the weekend, with his appearance also ground dependent.Trainer Michael OCallaghan said last week the Qatar Racing-owned Blue De Vegas participation was in the balance as he felt the race might just come too soon following a wet winter and a cold spring.However, Blue De Vega has been showing the right signs since and a final decision has yet to be made.Qatar racing manager David Redvers said: We are waiting to see what happens with the ground. He has his last spin on Tuesday so hes left in at the moment and a decision will be made nearer the time.Hes in great shape. Hes got two options - Newmarket or France. It just depends whether Michael feels hes ready to run after his last spin tomorrow.We dont particularly want extremes of going.Godolphin suffered a blow when their main hope Emotionless was ruled out of the race, but they could still mount a challenge, being represented by the Mark Johnston-trained Buratino, Jim Bolgers Herald The Dawn and Ribchester, trained by Richard Fahey.Massaat, runner-up to Air Force Blue in the Dewhurst, will be Owen Burrows first Classic runner after he took over from Barry Hills.His owner Sheikh Hamdan Al Maktoum also has Taqdeer, trained by John Gosden.Peter Chapple-Hyam relies on his Racing Post Trophy victor Marcel, while Ed Walker looks to Stormy Antarctic following his convincing victory in the Craven Stakes over the course and distance earlier this month.The list of possibles is completed by First Selection, Kentuckyconnection, Zhui Feng and Zonderland.
