A recipe for a major case of grumpy face, surely?
So why, when you see Daniil Kvyat on the TV coverage of Formula 1®, is there invariably a mile-wide smile on his face?
Through sheer determination and quite a bit of good humour, Kvyat bounced back, after a stint in sports car racing and time at Ferrari as a test and simulator driver. He has proven to be a great fit at what is now AlphaTauri, and an able match for teammate Pierre Gasly.
Far from being Red Bull rejects, this pair look capable of success in 2020 and beyond. Imagine how big the smile will be then.
