Daniil Vyacheslavovich Kvyat (Russian: Дании́л Вячесла́вович Квят; pronounced: kv-YAT; born 26 April 1994 in Ufa, Bashorotostan, Russia) is a Russian racing driver who made his Formula One debut in the 2014 Formula One season for the Toro Rosso team, alongside Jean-Éric Vergne. His car number is #26. Kvyat got his first opportunity to drive a Formula One car when he participated in the Young Driver Test for the same team during the 2013 season, in the U.S. and Brazil.

He made his Formula One début at the 2014 Australian Grand Prix. He qualified 8th and then made his first points finish by finishing 10th, but was later promoted to 9th after Daniel Ricciardo was disqualified. He made a new record for the youngest driver to score points at the age of 19 years and 324 days, breaking Sebastian Vettel's record by 19 years and 349 days, until Max Verstappen beat the record in the 2015 Malaysian Grand Prix at the age of 17 years and 180 days.

At the 2014 Japanese Grand Prix, Red Bull announced that Vettel would be leaving the team, promoting Kvyat up to Red Bull.

Following criticism of his actions in the 2016 Russian Grand Prix, Red Bull decided to bring him back to Toro Rosso and have Verstappen in his place.[1]

Starting from the 2017 Malaysian Grand Prix, he was replaced by Pierre Gasly, though he would still remain "part of the Red Bull Family".[2] After the announcement of Carlos Sainz, Jr. moving to Renault early,[3] Kvyat was confirmed to come back to Toro Rosso at the United States Grand Prix,[4] but despite scoring one point there, he was again left without a drive after Gasly and Brendon Hartley were confirmed to compete at the Mexican Grand Prix,[5] and was later released from Toro Rosso and Red Bull.[6] He later became a development driver for Ferrari in 2018.[7]
