Toro Rosso driver Danill Kvyat departed Montreal fuming after the Canadian Grand Prix in which he was handed two penalties for indiscretions he committed during the race which ended in a DNF for him.
Kvyat’s torrid day began when he remained parked on the grid as the field streamed off for the formation lap. He finally got going but made the mistake of reclaiming his grid spot, which is not permitted by the regulations, as he did not manage to slot in before the first Safety Car line.
What followed was a race packed with irate radio messages, at one point his engineer told him over the radio to calm down with the foul language.
After the race the Russian was still seething when he told reporters, “There were few frustrations. But, yeah I was angry with what’s going on. Another penalty, like it’s a joke, right?”
“I mean, what are we doing? And I get two points on my license which again is a stupid rule. We are taxi drivers here? Or F1 drivers? I don’t understand this. It’s a circus, a stupid f@cking circus!”
“I will go and talk to Charlie. It’s f@cking… It’s annoying, it’s really annoying me. A simple job, they can’t do it properly.
“Maybe it’s better to go in Baku because now the heat is up for me, I don’t want to say anything wrong to anyone. I’m not sure if it’s really Charlie, i’m not sure it’s Charlie. I don’t know. I want to understand first of all who does this job,” added Kvyat.
Meanwhile tensions are also mounting between him and his Toro Rosso teammate Carlos Sainz after the Spaniard claimed that an accord to help one another slip-streaming in qualifying was ignored by the Russian.
