Kvyat given two penalty points

Daniil Kvyat has been given two penalty points for his accident with Sergio Perez at the start of the race.

Kvyat hit the rear of Sergio Perez hard heading into the hairpin, which spun the Force India around. While the Toro Rosso picked up some front wing damage, it ruined the race for Perez and the Russian driver was given a 10 second penalty during the race, which was served at his pit stop.

Along with the 10 second penalty, the Russian was also given two penalty points on his licence.
