Kvyat laments “boring, annoying” race

2015 Japanese Grand Prix

Daniil Kvyat was thoroughly unsatisfied with his Japanese Grand Prix after starting from the pits in a new chassis following his crash yesterday.

Kvyat finished 13th but was frustrated by being unable to use his engine’s overtake button in the closing stages.

“It was pretty boring for me out there this afternoon,” said Kvyat, “because a combination of circumstances meant I had to just sit back and was unable to attack.”

“I had a completely new car, so that wasn’t so easy. We had difficulties with the tyres, the brakes and the overtake button, which made life complicated.”

“In the end, I did manage to overtake some people, but it wasn’t great. It’s frustrating and annoying, but there was nothing I could do.”

“Battling for P13 does not give you much satisfaction. But a big thank you to the team, they had a lot of work to do on Saturday night to get the car ready for the race.”

    1. Kvyat would make a great ‘rate the race’ commenter.

    2. Kvyat’s nothing but a cry baby to me. I find him annoying more than anyone else

      1. At least he doesn’t bash his team in public like Ricciardo does …

        1. That’s so true.

        2. When did he do that?

      2. His comments read more like a series of factual statements to me.

        Or maybe you just don’t like Kvyat, and are trying to hide your bias.

        1. @raceprouk I don’t mind Kvyat I just think he needs an attitude adjustment before he gets my respect

      3. Some of the viewers aren’t agree with you. :D

    3. I think you had more then enough excitement in Q3 on Saturday :P

    4. It didn’t feel any different with tv screen in between either….

    5. Spoken like a true racing fan.

    6. Well it probably was boring compared to his previous day…

    7. Yes, yes it was.
