NEWS STORY

Poor Daniil Kvyat is copping it from all sides this week – much like Sebastian Vettel. Not only does the rumour mill have it that he'll be been ousted from his seat at Red Bull but the Pitpass team is showing little mercy also.

Chris Balfe, Max Noble and Mat Coch – who sounds as if he's about to start Trending on Twitter for all the wrong reasons - have once again entered the Pitpass studio to dissect the race, with Balfe and Noble adding their voices to the chorus of criticism young Kvyat has faced since Sochi. Surprisingly it is Coch who leaps to his defence, a point not lost on Kvyat who seemed determined to interrupt the show by continually texting editor Balfe.

But if the team couldn't unanimously agree on just how much at fault Kvyat was, they could at least agree that it was, as Russian Grands Prix go, a pretty good one. It wasn't China good, but it was certainly not Abu Dhabi bad, which on balance means it was probably above average.

That isn't all down to the racing either as the weekend's events provided plenty of ammunition for the team away from the Vettel offensive on Russia's western front. Lewis Hamilton had chins wagging, and not for the right reasons, with the reigning world champion showing all the signs of having been up well past his bed time and having the strops for not getting ice-cream because he didn't eat all his vegetables. Yes, the team agrees his attitude over the weekend was childish, and they're not shy in airing that view.

Whatever medicine Coch is on has clearly left him in a feisty mood, the Australian taking objection to everything that anyone was saying. He's anti-team radio, anti-canopy, anti-Hamilton and, well, anti-anti. If further evidence were required his suggestion that selling Daniel Ricciardo for a buck and dropping Max Verstappen in alongside Kvyat at Red Bull is the way forward tells you everything you need to know.

Unclean, unclean!
