Daniil Kvyat’s new job in formula one will see him work mainly in the Ferrari driver simulator. The famous Italian team has announced that the Russian and Red Bull refugee has been signed up as a development driver.
Asked what Kvyat will be doing in 2018, a Ferrari spokesman told Tass news agency: “The role of development driver is normally associated with work in the simulator. Main track activities are covered by our other drivers,” he added.
Nonetheless, the Kvyat news caught many by surprise, including the pundit for Finnish broadcaster C More, Toni Vilander. “It will take valuable experience to Ferrari, as he was still a driver last season,” he said.
