We have seen Sergio Perez and Esteban Ocon of Force India fight on the track, without any regard fellow teammate. But to see a fellow driver leave, the Force India duo felt sympathetic for Daniil Kvyat. Despite a points finish in the US GP, Toro Rosso dropped Kvyat from their lineup. So as of now, ‘The Torpedo’ has no drive but his friend Ocon wants him back on the grid.
Ocon said “Daniil is a very nice guy and I’ve been friends with him for a long time. I’m disappointed to see he will not be on the grid in this race,”. “I want to see him come back and I’m sure he has the capabilities. He’s an awesome driver, really fast and he deserves to be on the grid.”
Force India Duo on Kvyat Situation
Sergio also expressed his views on the whole fiasco.
“I have a lot of sympathy for him. This is a very tough business with very few opportunities and you have to succeed all the time. I really hope Kvyat gets a seat sooner than later and he can be in a good position in the near future.”
Kvyat’s fall in the sport has been brutal. Having driven for Red Bull Racing, he was demoted to sister team Toro Rosso in 2016 in favour of Max Verstappen. And now, a season later, he stands without a certain future in the sport. The story just goes on to tell us how difficult it is to create a mark in Formula 1. Even if you are in one of the top teams in one season, it does not cement your drive for the next.
