I posted basically the same thing in another forum here but with a different title. I am not sure how many others here are F1 fans and Scuderia Ferrari fans, but I am. I watched the Sochi Russian GP and was quite upset that all Kvyat got for his dangerous driving at the start (2nd and 3rd corners), for hitting Vettel twice in the rear and putting him into the wall (because he sliced Vettel's rear tire with the 2nd hit at the 3rd corner) only netted him a 10 second penalty. At the very least this type of driving should have netted him a 1 race ban as it did Grosjean a few years ago in Spain when he caused the first corner crash and almost took out Alonso. In fact Kvyat's driving makes Maldonado look like a clean driver.

Seems like Red Bull is penalizing Kvyat more than the stewards at Sochi felt the need to for his first lap brain fade. They are demoting him to Torro Rosso and giving his seat to Max Verstappen (thereby avoiding other teams trying to poach Max for 2017).
