" It was a normal lap-one incident , one car coming from off the track and one car being sandwiched," Kvyat said. Norris also failed to finish, but Sainz came home in 14th and was critical of Kvyat 's first lap . "We were just all fighting and at the exit of the corner I think someone didn't enjoy going side by

Daniil Kvyat refuses to believe that he was at fault for the first-lap accident between his Toro Rosso and the two McLaren’s during the Chinese Grand Prix.

The three drivers came together on the exit of Turn 6. Lando Norris had run wide onto the kerb on the exit in his McLaren, while his team-mate Carlos Sainz had been overtaken Kvyat’s Toro Rosso on the inside.

With cold tyres, Kvyat had oversteer which squeezed Sainz into Norris, who was returning to the track. If left both McLaren drivers with damage, including an airborne moment for Norris.

The stewards handed Kvyat a drive-through penalty for the accident, something which the Toro Rosso driver strongly contests.

“It was not definitely fair. I think there was no penalty at all, not even close to a drive through, so I disagree with that,” Kvyat said.

“We will discuss with steward behind closed doors. What happened there? I am curious, without doubt, I will prove my point of view to them.

“It was a very usual Lap 1 incident, just three cars in one corner. I left enough space to at least one of them, honestly, I fell I did everything right.”

Despite Kvyat pleading his innocence, Sainz suggested a lack of patience from the Russian was key to the incident.

“It’s one of those things, you have to be patient at the start, it’s a 56-lap race,” Sainz said.

“Even if you don’t get the best of starts, I didn’t get the best of starts for once.

“At the exit of Turn 6 is somewhere unlikely to go side by side and (Kvyat) created a bit of a melee.”

Sainz came home 14th, while both Kvyat and Norris retired with damage caused on Lap 1.

Bottas wins in Azerbaijan, Mercedes earns record breaking one-two.
Valtteri Bottas edged team-mate Lewis Hamilton to take victory and the Formula 1 championship lead at the Azerbaijan Grand Prix, as Mercedes sealed a fourth consecutive one-two finish. Mercedes has become the first team in history to open a season with four one-twos, with Bottas becoming the first driver to win from pole in 2019. Successfully fending off Hamilton as the two ran side by side through the first two corners, Bottas was able to keep his team-mate at arms length throughout the majority of the race. Hamilton did manage to close up in the closing stages, edging to within DRS range late on.
