Scuderia Toro Rosso driver, Daniil Kvyat suffered a poor race in today’s Malaysian Grand Prix after making contact with another car on the opening lap.  The Russian hit the back of Kevin Magnussen‘s Renault as the Dane was slowed by the pack ahead of him, breaking Kvyat’s front wing.

Due to the collision, the car suffered some damage that really hindered the race for Kvyat: “Unfortunately our race was destroyed after some contact on the first lap with another car. My front wing got damaged and, from then on, we really couldn’t hope for much.”

Despite feeling despondent about his overall result of fourteenth place, finishing in front of only Pascal Wehrlein and Esteban Ocon, Kvyat knew that he had to take risks to improve his back of the grid start.

It’s frustrating when this happens, but when you start from so back on the grid this is always one of the risks –sometimes you escape, sometimes you don’t…It was just one of those races! Luckily the race in Japan is next week, so we can start working hard for it straight away and forget today.”
