Since Ricciardo had dived down the inside, Daniil Kvyat had nowhere to go and both went wide. Then, something bizarre occurred, where Ricciardo apparently reversed into the Toro Rosso of Daniil Kvyat. Needless to say, Kvyat was not amused at all by the stunt and made it very clear.

However, he did say that Ricciardo needed to learn about patience and there was a long straight coming up. Also, the corner was very tight and since Ricciardo went wide, Kvta was forced to go with him.

At that point, Kvyat jokingly said that next time he will buy Ricciardo a rear-view mirror.
