Carlos Sainz expresses his frustration towards Daniil Kvyat

Carlos Sainz has expressed his frustrations towards Daniil Kvyat after the Toro Rosso driver crashed into the McLaren causing the Spaniard to retire. Sainz believes that the incident could have been prevented and that Kvyat was too impatient and should have waited a few more laps before he made a move. 

"From my side it is Lap 1," said Sainz to pitpass.com. "Obviously, I understand his frustrations but anything can happen, but it is Lap 1 and there is 55 laps to go. So if you don't get the best of starts… look at your team-mate who has finished in the points starting from the pit lane.

"It is a long race and you don't have to open the steering wheel on the exit of a corner when you know you have two McLarens side-by-side," he continued. "I think he knew, he knew that we were there.

"It's a bit of a shame because of that as it is a long race here in Shanghai and you can overtake here so if you don't get the best of starts you have to be patient and get back in the points. That is exactly what Lando and I were doing but we were in a melee. It is a shame."

Sainz will hope that he gets more luck in Baku and that he can finish high in the points.
