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.
Starting from the 2017 Malaysian Grand Prix, he was replaced by Pierre Gasly, though he would still remain "part of the Red Bull Family". After the announcement of Carlos Sainz, Jr. moving to Renault early, Kvyat was confirmed to come back to Toro Rosso starting from the United States Grand Prix.
