Just like his team-mate, Kvyat knows first hand how brutal Formula One is and in particular, the Red Bull driving system. 

After one season at Toro Rosso, just like Gasly, he was promoted to Red Bull to partner Daniel Riccardo in which Kvyat even out-scored his team-mate during their first year together.

However the presence of Max Verstappen was too much for Red Bull to resist as Kvyat was sent packing and back down to the ‘B’ team after just four races into the 2016 season. The demotion seemingly affected Kvyat which was represented in his form but tough times don’t last, tough people do - he is one of those. 

After a year out of the sport, Kvyat made a surprise comeback to the team which gave him his debut and it was a terrific return for the driver which included a podium in Germany.
