Red Bull star Daniil Kvyat is set to pay the ultimate price for disastrous brain fade at the Russian Grand Prix on the weekend.

Kvyat smashed into the back of Ferrari driver Sebastian Vettel, who in turn hit Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo, with both drivers' races ruined.

The incident left both manufacturers, as well as Vettel and Ricciardo, absolutely fuming.

The 22-year-old has apologised to both Ferrari and his own team for his error, but according to reports, he is set to lose his seat at Red Bull for next season.

Kvyat, who was already on thin ice prior to the race, will have talks with Red Bull about his future later this week.

This year is Kvyat's second season at Red Bull, after he was promoted from Toro Ross after just one season.
