Kvyat three points from ban after clash
16 July 2017 – Daniil Kvyat has edged closer to a one-race ban after he received more penalty points in the wake of a first-lap collision at the British Grand Prix.
Kvyat made contact with Toro Rosso team-mate Carlos Sainz Jr. through Becketts at Silverstone, punting the Spaniard into a spin and subsequent retirement.
Stewards deemed that Kvyat "left the track and rejoined in an unsafe manner", and was "wholly to blame" for causing the collision.
Kvyat was handed a drive-through penalty and two additional points on his Super Licence for the second successive week, after he also triggered a start crash in Austria.
Kvyat's running 12-month total now sits at nine points, just three away from a one-race ban.
The Russian will not drop any of his nine points until this October, meaning he will be walking a tightrope for the next handful of rounds.
