Antonio Felix da Costa deserved to move up to formula one in 2014.
"The strange thing is not the fact that he (Kvyat) is coming from GP3," he explained. "A driver can demonstrate his talent in many categories.
"What I'm saying it that there is a loss of momentum," said Razia, insisting that da Costa showed every sign of being prepared to take the final step into F1.
"Antonio won a third of the races he contested in the World Series. The Arden team is good, but it had some problems in this season, but even so, he finished the championship third," he added.
"I'm the devil's advocate because I'm Antonio's friend, but I think he was in a much stronger position (to debut in F1).
"But we all know that is not all -- it is very clear that next year there is a race in Russia, and F1 needs a Russian.
"It (F1) is a very political category, and he (Kvyat) is even sponsored by a Russian bank. Toro Rosso has difficulties, as everyone does, so it was a situation where everything fell into place for him," he added.
