After an impressive performance during yesterday’s qualifying session for the German Grand Prix, Daniil Kvyat’s race at Hockenheim could not have gone much worse.
A good start saw the Russian youngster move up to sixth place after the safety car period, but he was powerless to hold back the drivers behind. When trying to recover a position from Sergio Perez, he was spun off, causing him to drop well down the order.
He was unable to fight back, and his race then went up in smoke quite literally as his Toro Rosso car caught fire heading down the back straight.
Kvyat was clearly frustrated to retire for the fourth time in five races, raising his hands and punching the air. Even if his luck has been down so far this year, he is certainly turning heads in Formula 1 with such mature and strong performances behind the wheel.
