Daniil Kvyat has been relegated out of the points places for the second race in a row due to a post-race time penalty following a collision with a rival.

The Toro Rosso driver was given a five-second time penalty for a collision with Sergio Perez. He therefore falls from 10th to 12th place.

The Racing Point driver said on his radio Perez moved close to him under the yellow flags which were showing because of Kevin Magnussen’s retirement at turn 12.

“Yes, we fucking took it,” exclaimed Kvyat on the slowing-down lap. However his rival was complaining about the move he made at turn 15 which damaged his front-left end plate.

“He came so close under the yellow flag and then he pushed me off,” said Perez. “Is that OK? He just broke my car.

“I lift for the yellow flag, he came really close to me, he just attacked me afterwards. And then into 15 he just pushed me off, came and crashed into me. I gave him enough space and he just pushed me off the track. He broke the front wing, suspension, he just crashed into me and I gave him a lot of room.”

“He didn’t lift under the yellow flag, attacked me straight away and crashed into me,” Perez added.

Kvyat was also penalised after the race in Mexico following a collision with Nico Hulkenberg.
