01/09/2014

Sochi organisers have announced that the T4 grandstand will be renamed the Kvyat Stand during the Russian Grand Prix weekend.

The T4 Grandstand is one of the best places on the new circuit for fans, from this vantage point they will be able to see all the action in Turns 2, 3, 4 and 5 as the cars manoeuvre the longest left hand corner on the F1 calendar.

Daniil Kvyat was informed of the news when he attended the Sochi Autodrom exhibition at the Moscow International Automobile Salon at the weekend, the Russian driver talked to fans who were visiting the exhibition and also tested the virtual Sochi circuit.

"I was amazed to learn there will be a grandstand bearing my name," said the 20-year-old. "Usually, this is an honour reserved for drivers who have retired, so it is both surprising and a great privilege. I hope that the spectators will enjoy the fantastic view from the T4 grandstand and have a wonderful time. It will be a historic time for Formula 1 and for Russia and I can’t wait to race in front of my home crowd."

"Agree 100% with nonickname & Sennapod.

How on earth can the F1 "Circus" go to Russia and act as if everything's rosy when Russian soldiers are killing (and being killed) in a senseless "war" with Russia's neighbour, and Mr P is blatantly threatening us with a nuclear holocaust?

This won't affect Bernie nor the F1 sycophants. I'm expecting the "Islamic State" to be hosting a GP next year if Mr Ecclestone has anything to do with it!"

"I agree totally with the sentiments of Sennapod.
All f1 does is embarrass itself over and over again.
I really think that it is time that the old folk move on to their dotage. I also look forward to the political community Puttin (sorry!!) a stop to this race."

"With all credit to Daniel Kyvat himself, doesn't this just sound a bit tacky and smacking of desperation (no doubt in part to the lack of any other recognisable Motorsport heritage in Russia that they can't find anyone else to name a stand after)

And I'm wondering anyway when international pressure will build and demand this race is boycotted, postponed whatever. In current circumstances when economic sanctions are already in place and Putin is reminding NATO not to mess with Russia because it's a leading nuclear power, F1 really does seem to be lacking any moral beacon or backbone. The only people who wil come out of this well will be the Russian race promoters and Bernie. Not the teams, drivers or fans..."
