Sochi grandstand named in Kvyat's honour
2 September 2014 – Russian Grand Prix organisers have named a grandstand at Sochi Autodrom in Daniil Kvyat's honour.
The grandstand in question, located on the inside of the 5.853-km circuit which journeys through the resort's Olympic Park, offers views of the opening segment of the lap, running from Turn 2 through Turns 3, 4 and 5.
The announcement was made as Toro Rosso's Kvyat, the only Russian on the grid for the country's inaugural Formula 1 event, attended the Sochi Autodrom exhibition at the Moscow International Automobile Salon.
"I was amazed to learn there will be a grandstand bearing my name at the Sochi Autodrom," said Kvyat. "Usually, this is an honour reserved for drivers who have retired, so it is both surprising and a great privilege."
The Russian Grand Prix is scheduled to take place from October 10-12, the 16th of 19 rounds in 2014.
