Daniil Kvyat Biography

Daniil Kvyat first practice with the Toro Rosso STR8 (Brazil 2013)

A GP3 championship in 2012 was the catalyst for the surprise move to Toro Rosso as Kvyat had a strong finish to claim the title. He joined the Red Bull academy in 2010 and has also claimed the Formula 2.0 Alps trophy.

Sebastian Vettel’s replacement at Red Bull will be entering only his third season in Formula 1, emphasising how talented many consider young Russian Daniil Kvyat to be.

Kvyat impressed at Red Bull’s junior team Toro Rosso in 2014, and he was picked over the more experienced Jean-Eric Vergne for Vettel’s seat.

Red Bull has shown ruthlessness before with their young drivers, and history shows that they only promote the very best to the main team.

However, Kvyat made a lasting impression in his first season by beating Daniel Ricciardo in the championship standings.

The 21-year-old was chosen ahead of more experienced drivers to get the Toro Rosso's 2014 seat , and he duly delivered a promising season by scoring eight points including two on his debut in Australia.

Naturally fast, his most impressive performances came in qualifying where he finished fifth on two occasions, including in home race at the inaugural Russian Grand Prix.

With Carlos Sainz and Max Verstappen in place at Toro Rosso in 2015, Kvyat was under immediate pressure to impress at his new team, just as his new team-mate Daniel Ricciardo did in 2014.

After a sluggish start, he found form and secured his first podium with 2nd in Hungary. As the season went on, he grew in confidence and Ricciardo struggled to compete.

2016 was not a good season for Daniil. After being responsible for 2 collisions early in the season he was replaced by upcoming star Max Verstappen. Daniil pick up his pace of earlier season and was outperformed by Carlos Sainz, his new very talented Spanish teammate.
