Kvyat totally disagrees with penalty for lap one incident

Toro Rosso's Daniil Kvyat "totally disagrees" with the drive-through penalty he was handed during the Chinese Grand Prix, as the Russian got handed a drive-through penalty for a collision with both McLaren cars in the very first lap of the 1000th Formula 1 race.

In 2016 at the Chinese Grand Prix, Kvyat earned his notorious 'torpedo' nickname after sending his Red Bull down Sebastian Vettel's inside on the first lap. This year, he was on the inside of both Carlos Sainz and Lando Norris, when he made contact with both cars and ending their hopes of scoring points during the race.

Kvyat was handed a drive-through penalty as a result for the collision, but the 24-year-old doesn't think this should've been the case.

“Regarding the lap-one incident I saw it quite many times now, I had time, and to be honest I totally disagree with the penalty,”  he told Sky Sports F1.

“I will speak with the stewards behind closed doors to find out what is their opinion on that.

“I don’t see ever this incident was very particular. It’s a typical lap one sandwich so these things happen."

Judging by your name you feel obligated to find Kvyat at fault. Look up your namesake from the sixties and what he thought of Russians. Kvyat happens to be Russian - what a coincidence.
