Two more penalty points for ‘The Torpedo’

Daniil 'The Torpedo' Kvyat has continued to rack up the penalty points after colliding with team-mate Carlos Sainz at the British Grand Prix.

The Russian was given a drive-through penalty, his second in as many races, after re-entering the track in an unsafe manner, and now has two more penalty points added to his superlicence.

The opening lap incident means Kvyat has nine penalty points in total, with 12 being an automatic one-race suspension. None of the nine points currently on his licence expire until October.

On the incident, Kvyat said: "I'm very frustrated. My team-mate didn't see me and just came across at massive speed.

"I'm frustrated with the penalty as my race was already ruined. I don't know what the stewards are looking at there."
