Kvyat returns to F1 car for Alpine test

Daniil Kvyat was replaced at AlphaTauri at the end of the 2020 season by Yuki Tsunoda, but the Russian will return to an F1 car this week for a testing session with Pirelli.

Daniil Kvyat will make a return to an F1 car this week at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya for a testing session with Pirelli driving an Alpine. The Russian driver, who was let go by AlphaTauri at the end of 2020 and replaced by Yuki Tsunoda, will conduct a testing session in the R.S. 18 for Pirelli from tomorrow in his current role as back up driver to Fernando Alonso and Esteban Ocon. He previously tested for Ferrari back in 2018 after he was dropped from the then Toro Rosso team. Kvyat has recently also spoke of his desire to return to racing, saying that while he has various options on the table he remains committed to finding a way to return to Formula 1.


The action at @Circuitcat_eng isn’t over yet! We’ve got three teams testing 2022 #Fit4F1 18-inch tyres for us starting from tomorrow. @AlpineF1Team and @kvyatofficial will be testing on Wednesday. @F1 @fia pic.twitter.com/TX9BDt2ZGi — Pirelli Motorsport (@pirellisport) May 10, 2021
