Kvyat's China opinion unchanged but looking forward to Baku

Daniil Kvyat has revealed he’s holding his ground, over his stance on his penalty for the lap 1 crash between himself and the two McLaren drivers but is now looking forward to the Azerbaijan Grand Prix.

Kvyat collided with Carlos Sainz on the first lap and subsequently bounced into Lando Norris forcing the rookie McLaren driver off the track. Kvyat and Norris went on to retire from the race whilst Carlos Sainz finished P14. The Russian labelled the punishment he got for his role as “harsh” but is now looking forward to Baku.

“After China, my opinion on the penalty decision relating to the first lap incident hasn’t changed, but the debate is over and we must move forward and look to Baku now,” said Kvyat in an interview on thechequeredflag.co.uk.

“Baku is a very nice track, because it presents many challenges, with a bit of everything and overall it is fun to drive there.

"It’s a long track, with a very long straight and a lot of corners, which all makes for exciting racing and should present a good opportunity for us.

“The fun comes partly from all those walls that are very close to the track, which give you a real adrenaline rush."
