Kvyat rose quickly in to Formula One but ever-improving results in his junior career hint at a fast learner. Having followed a similar path to many in to motorsport - karting - Kvyat started driving single-seaters in 2010 as Red Bull backed him to compete in Formula BMW Europe. While he didn't exactly shine in his debut year on the continent - a second place at Monza his best result - he won twice in Malaysia while driving in the Pacific series.

After that he stepped up to Formula Renault 2.0 and won twice in the Eurocup racing alongside Carlos Sainz Jr. He also competed in the Toyota Racing Series in New Zealand and finished fifth in the championship. Another year in Formula Renault 2.0 followed and was much more productive as Kvyat finished second in the standings to Stoffel Vandoorne and won the Formula Renault 2.0 Alps championship.

Red Bull then moved Kvyat in to GP3 rather than the Formula Renault 3.5 series, and he made quick progress throughout the season to go in to the season finale seven points off the championship lead. He combined his GP3 duties with appearances in European F3 and took five pole positions, seven podiums and a win at Zandvoort.

Kvyat's performances in 2013 led Red Bull to quickly elevate him to Formula One as he was announced as Daniel Ricciardo's replacement at Toro Rosso in 2014. Following the announcement, he duly sewed up the GP3 title in Abu Dhabi.
