In China, Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel wrongfully pointed an accusing finger at Red Bull?s Daniil Kvyat.

The Russian embarrassed the four-time Formula One World Champion on that occasion, but in Russia, Vettel was well within his rights to have an issue with Kvyat.

The Red Bull Racing driver punted Vettel off the track not once, but twice!

Heading into the second corner Kvyat carried too much pace and bumped into the back of Vettel causing contact in front of him.

To make a bad situation worse, Kvyat then crashed into the back of Vettel for a second time in the third corner, spinning him off into the tyre wall forcing the German to retire and bring out a safety car.

‘There was a bit going on [at the start], and I think in the last moment I didn’t expect it to slow so much.

‘I tried to press the brakes, the rear wheels locked and the first contact came from that. The second contact he just slowed down a lot, I couldn’t see ahead, and I didn’t have time to react.
Kvyat told

‘All the mess came from me? of course it doesn’t feel great but these things happen sometimes. It’s probably the messiest [start] of my career. I will learn from it – and of course apologies to everyone involved.

‘I think we will speak [with Vettel and Ricciardo], that’s all we can do. Everyone will attack me, but I’m okay with that.’
