Daniil Kvyat is to make a remarkable return to Red Bull’s junior team a year after being dropped from the drinks company’s driver line-up.
The Russian has been re-signed to drive for Toro Rosso next season despite being demoted and then dropped twice by Red Bull in the space of 18 months in 2016-17.

Kvyat, 24, said he was “particularly pleased” to be re-joining a team he knows “very well”.
