Kvyat honest about Grosjean: At first I was very angry, but then my mind changed

Daniil Kyvat was initially not happy with the action of Romain Grosjean on the Bahrain International Circuit, he honestly indicates. Pierre Gasly's teammate didn't understand why the Haas F1 driver suddenly dived to the right side of the track. Seconds later, his anger gave way to serious concern.

"[It] was a scary moment," Kvyat reports to Sky. The AlphaTauri driver did not understand why Grosjean suddenly went from left to right on the track. "I saw him [and] at first I was very angry that he came across like this. I thought 'What is he doing?'

"But then my mind changed immediately when I saw in the mirrors the fire. I was just hoping he was okay. I immediately didn't like what I saw in my mirrors and we're glad... I'm glad he's okay. Honestly. Really, this just reminds you what we do is dangerous."

Kvyat not happy with stewards

After the restart, Kvyat then crashed with Lance Stroll. The stewards handed out a ten-second time penalty, something the Russian cannot agree with at all. "I don't share the stewards view on that. I think I had nowhere to go," he said. 

In the end, Kvyat finished in 11th place, just outside the points. "I already put my whole car on the inside kerb. He on the other hand, he knew I was in there, but he turned in as if I wasn't there. So I'm a bit upset with this decision. It kind of ruined my race, because I had a great second start, I was again back in the game, but this penalty just ruined everything," he concluded.
