Russian youngster, surprisingly chosen by Toro Rosso as their driver for their 2014 season, but on his debut became the youngest ever points scorer in F1. GP3 champion in 2013, his rise to the top was spectacularly quick. That said, a move to Red Bull to replace Vettel in 2015 was a big surprise, but Daniil did reasonably. However in 2016, he was demoted back to Toro Rosso, where he remained in 2017, but after a disappointing season, he was dropped towards the end of the year. In 2018, he moved to Ferrari in a test and development role.
