September 1st, 2014 (F1Plus / Rosie Baillie) The organisers of the Russian Grand Prix have announced that they will name a grandstand after Toro Rosso driver Daniil Kvyat.

The turn four grandstand at the Sochi Autodrom will be named after Kvyat, who joined Formula One at the start of the season.

The announcement was made at the Sochi Autodrom exhibition in Moscow.

"I was amazed to learn there will be a grandstand bearing my name at the Sochi Autodrom - usually, this is an honour reserved for drivers who have retired, so it is both surprising and a great privilege,” said Kvyat.

“It will be a historic time for Formula One and for Russia and I can't wait to race in front of my home crowd.”

Turn four will give spectators a view of the first section of the 5.853km circuit.

“I hope that the spectators will enjoy the fantastic view and have a wonderful time over the weekend of the first ever Russian Grand Prix,” said the Russian.

Kvyat is only the second Russian F1 driver. The first was Vitaly Petrov who left the sport at the end of 2011.

Toro Rosso have announced that Kvyat will remain with the team for 2015 and will be joined by Max Verstappen.
