Lewis Hamilton has led the calls for changes to be made to the kerbs around the Red Bull Ring after a high-speed suspension failure and crash for Daniil Kvyat in qualifying for the Austrian Grand Prix.

Kvyat crashed heavily after running wide at turn eight and damaging the suspension on the kerbs, the Toro Rosso spearing out of control to clip the inside barrier at turn nine before coming to rest at the exit of the corner.

It comes after Max Verstappen aired his concerns about the kerbs after damaging his car in FP1, while they would be also be blamed for the suspension failures suffered by Nico Rosberg in FP3 and Sergio Perez in qualifying ahead of Kvyat's smash.

"At the last corner, everyone is going off [with] four wheels, they wanted to make it better but actually they made it worse," he told Sky Sports F1.

"I think this year the track needs a bit of review, because the track limits is an issue and these kerbs are not very cool, and they are very dangerous actually."
