Kvyat edges closer to race ban with Hungarian GP penalty

Published

on

Daniil Kvyat reached onto 10 penalty points for 12-month period and is just two more away from a race ban. None of the penalty points will expire until at least October.

The Russian was handed a three-place grid drop and one penalty point on his super license following impeding Williams F1 rookie Lance Stroll at Turn 11 during the qualifying Q1, as the Canadian tried to escape the drop – which he failed to do.

The Grid penalty resulted Kvyat drop from 13th to 16th on Sunday’s race grid.

The stewards said in a statement: “The stewards examined video, driver radio communications, timing data, telemetry and car positioning data evidence and heard from Daniil Kvyat, Lance Stroll and the team representatives.

“The stewards determined that Kvyat was on an exceptionally slow lap having spun earlier and damaged his tyres. The stewards acknowledged that he was warned by the team very late of the approach of Stroll who was on a fast lap.

“Further, Kvyat pulled as far to the right as he could as soon as he saw Stroll. However, the stewards considered that these were not mitigating factors.

“Kvyat was driving exceptionally slowly and taking the racing line at the end of Q1 when other drivers were attempting to set fast laps and this led to the unnecessary impeding.”

“I have to accept their decision,” Kvyat told reporters. “Unfortunately we had a miscommunication with the team, the team didn’t tell me anyone was coming.

“Unfortunately it happens. I was asked to bring the car in slowly because of vibrations. The speed was so different and when I saw him, I went on the grass but for them it was not enough even that.

“I think they like to make an example out of me.”
