Daniil Kvyat dropped foul of the ruthlessness at the Programme. In 2014, he had been tracked in to Formula 1 and had a good first season with Toro Rosso. He did being breaking the record for points scorer and qualifying 5th at the . He ended at the tournament below teammate Jean-Eric Vergne that was more capable but obtained the driveway to restore that was outscored and outgoing Sebastian Vettel by two points in 2015.

However, the writing was to the wall (in Dutch).

had amazed in 2015. Became the ideal overtaker in F1 and scored the most points for a Toro Rosso Driver with 49. (Vettel might have scored 93 things with the recent points arrangement in 2008, but he had been ’s 4x World Champion).

And he did this all.

RedBull wanted him towards the pressure and also the very best. He knew he had to prove himself and a podium at China looked to be just that.

Kvyat had been a broken man and Verstappen’in Barcelona would just seal the bargain, s triumph.

Toro Rosso towards the end of 2017 eventually droped him Towards and . He had been acquired as a growing driver by Ferrari in 2018. However, with Ricciardo’so proceed to and Hartley falling out Kvyat had been rear.

He will start his third career chance.


Alex Albon was the surprise of the 2018 f 2 season winning him a return into the junior fold and also a works FormulaE drive using a 20-19 Toro Rosso seat.

For 2018, ART droped him and picked up despite not having enough sponsorship to see the season out. This meant he had to perform. And he did.

Albon’s re-appointment was hunted until Ticktum failed to win against against the F3 championship leading to legal discussions with Nissan who’d picked up him for 3 41, but no arm was outstretched.
