Kvyat breaks Vettel record

It wasn't a good day for Sebastian Vettel in Australia as he not only failed to finish the race, but also lost one of his records to Daniil Kvyat.


At 19 years and 322 days, the Russian became Formula One's youngest points scorer as he crossed the finish line in 10th place, beating Vettel's previous mark by 27 days.

In his first race weekend in F1, the Toro Rosso driver showed maturity beyond his years as he first managed to make it into Q3 and started Sunday's race in sixth place following a penalty to Valtteri Bottas.

He didn't look out of place and finished behind his team-mate Jean-Eric Vergne.

"It was a very intense afternoon and finishing my first race with a point is a great feeling," said the Toro Rosso driver. "It was a fantastic first Grand Prix weekend with the team, everyone worked really hard and scoring points was a great way to end it. The start was a bit messy, but after that I managed to get into a rhythm and the car seemed competitive compared to those around us.

"It was close at the end with Jean-Eric, but I had to save fuel towards the end, so I was not going to attack him. I never expected to score a point in my first race, so it feels amazing. It's a real boost for us and now we have to keep on working hard and if we keep on the way we are going, then we can look forward to a really positive season."
