Daniil Kvyat apologised to Red Bull after he suffered a high-speed crash during qualifying for the Japanese Grand Prix.
Kvyat dipped a wheel onto the grass at the kink before the hairpin and left the circuit, colliding with the barriers before flipping his RB11.
Kvyat was unhurt in the crash but will start from the pit lane on Sunday due to the damage sustained to his car.
"I’ve never rolled a racing car before and they say there’s a first time for everything," he said.
"I’m feeling more disappointment than pain. I put two wheels on the grass and there was not much run off area at that point so it put me straight into the wall.
"I was pushing hard after a messy FP3 and this is the consequence of going over the limit.
"The car looks really bad and I’m sorry for the guys who have already had a tough couple of weeks and now they have even more work to do."
