Former Red Bull and Toro Rosso driver Daniil Kvyat has joined Ferrari as a development driver. The Russian was once a highly rated prospect and has scored two podiums in his career but had been on a downward spiral seemingly since his demotion from Red Bull early in the 2016 season and was eventually sacked by the Toro Rosso team last year.
At only 23 this could be a lifeline for Kvyat who could potentially revive his career at Ferrari if he impresses as a development driver, with the potential of seats at Haas or Sauber available through their youth system.
