Banning Russian Athletes Is 'Unfair Solution', Says Former F1 Driver Kvyat

Excluding Russian athletes from sport because the country invaded Ukraine is an "unfair solution", says ex-Formula 1 driver Daniil Kvyat.

The sport's governing body, the FIA, is staging an emergency meeting on Tuesday to "discuss matters relating to the ongoing crisis in Ukraine".

It will determine whether F1's only current Russian driver, Nikita Mazepin, can compete for his team, Haas.

Russian Kvyat is due to compete in the World Endurance Championship this year.

The 27-year-old said "sport should remain outside politics" and banning Russian athletes "goes against what sport teaches us in principle: the unity and peace".
