Kvyat to start from pitlane with new chassis
Toro Rosso driver Daniil Kvyat will start the Austrian Grand Prix from the pit lane after his team were forced to replace his chassis which was wrecked during qualifying.
A suspension failure in Turn 8 resulted in him losing control and slamming the barrier.
After evaluating the damage overnight, Toro Rosso decided to replace the survival cell of Kvyat’s car, which automatically resulted in a pit lane start and required the fitting of a new gearbox.
Kvyat was set to start the race at Red Bull Ring from 18th on the grid.
