Russian born F1 driver Daniil Kvyat who currently races for the constructors company Toro Rosso at the Formula 1 championship 2017 could get a race ban due to his unprofessional behaviors at the race track during the Hungarian GP qualifying races yesterday. he had become guilt of obstructing Lance Stroll who drives for Williams company in the F1 championship.
The Toro Rosso driver gave an explanation that he had been warned by his team at the eleventh hour that Williams driver Lance Stroll was becoming close to go on a hot lap and he just took it to the grass when he could realize.
Lance who was trying to escape the first qualifier elimination and flying down the track and eventually came up on the Russian and became forced to go around him and said to his team on the radio that he got blocked by Kvyat on the track.
Whatever, it has been come to the spotlight that, there was a radio message from the Toro Rosso team to their driver Kvyat that told him to watch out for Lance who was becoming close to him and the Russian responded harshly.
But it has not proven that he did enough to avoid obstructing others on the track, rather it looked like he was doing the intentionally as he was driving very slowly on the track which made himself impeding other drivers.
Whatever, the authority has given him a three grid place penalty for the final race which will happen on Sunday. He had got his pole position as the 13th racer. But, he will start as the 16th driver at the final race which will take place at Hungaroring.
He had been also awarded with a penalty point, which has taken his penalty point tally to 10 and if he gains another two points he will be awarded a one race ban.
Whatever, Kvyat has said that, the stewards want to make an example of punishment and he thinks he is the guinea pig for them.
Kvyat said to the media that he has to accept the penalty. He also said that, there was some sort of miscommunication among him and his team. He stated that his team did not let him know that any car was coming during the incident.
He admitted that these things happen sometimes. He said that he was asked to bring the car slowly because there were some vibrations in the tyres. The speed was different he admits and he also said that whenever he saw a car coming he immediately tried to take his car to the grass but that was not enough to make room for the other cars. He said that he thinks that they are trying to make an example out of him.
Kvyat was asked if he feels he is being targeted by officials as he has received actually a series of penalties this season. The Russian replied with ease that he actually does not care any more.
He also stated that he does not think it will help to consult with the FIA F1race director about his penalties.
