F1: Vettel and Kvyat collide again in Russian Federation

Daniil Kvyat phoned Sebastian Vettel after Sochi F1 crashes

Raikkonen agreed, even if the task was formidable with Mercedes having won the last 10 races and 36 out of 42 since the start of 2014. "I think if anybody needs to talk to somebody I guess it's him". "Also, in Sochi, we know roughly what to expect so we can still learn a lot from what other people did". "Still, it is a shame, because now we are lacking some laps, especially in the long runs on race trims, which would have allowed us to see how competitive we are".

The Russian driver also sustained a penalty in the race for causing the collision.

Following on from China where Vettel was unhappy with Kvyat's driving in the first corner, this time in Russian Federation the German was furious.

It was Rosberg's fourth straight win this season and seventh in succession, including three past year, and was a disastrous day for the chasing pack including the Ferrari and Red Bull teams.

He added to the BBC: "It was not my fault - there was nothing I would do differently".

"I got a big hit and was lucky not to spin into Turn Two, then another huge hit which turned me around and I couldn't avoid hitting the barriers".

He then commandeered a scooter from a marshal, riding it back to the paddock with the official behind as a passenger, before seeking out Red Bull's team principal, Christian Horner, on the pit wall. Although Marko understands Kvyat's eagerness to perform on home soil, the motorsport advisor says his actions were unwarranted. "I don't dislike him (Kvyat), but I think he did a mistake two weeks ago, he made a mistake today, but it doesn't help me now".

Rosberg celebrates his victory. "Very, very happy, thanks to everybody", Rosberg said.

Immediately after the crash, Vettel said: "Oh for f-- sake, man!" He's on it and as motivated as ever.

The four-time world champion did not hold back as his growing rivalry with Daniil Kvyat was stoked up yet further when the young Russian thumped into the back of him at the second turn.

Ferraris' Kimi Raikkonen finished in the third place after team Mercedes pilots. The team doesn't want to give up and we want to put all our energy from now on, we have 17 races.
