Kvyat ‘won’t change’ style as race ban looms

Daniil Kvyat has said he will not let his mounting tally of penalty points affect his approach for the rest of the season.

'The Torpedo' tag has become firmly reattached following first lap accidents at both Spielberg and Silverstone and now has nine penalty points on his licence.

None of those points will expire before the United States Grand Prix in October and he is just three more away from a one-race ban.

But, the Russian, is staying cool about the situation.

"I no longer feel any pressure, first of all, because these are two different kinds of accidents," Kvyat told FormulaPassion.it.

"At the end you don’t change the approach, we’re racing and not just avoiding collisions. Before the last two races there were some problems, and when you start pushing things a bit, it never ends well.

"Normally, after two races like these, you take a deep breath and go on."

Asked whether he is worried about a ban, he added: "No, also Vettel had nine points on his license, but all these are not eleven, so you can go and do your job. This is not something that bothers me, absolutely."
