Whenever we put him in a car his efforts were remarkable.
"Whenever we put him in a car his efforts were remarkable," said Red Bull Motorsports Advisor Helmut Marko during the announcement on Servus TV.
"This is fantastic news, a dream come true and I want to thank Red Bull and Toro Rosso for giving me this priceless opportunity," said Kvyat. "Ever since I began karting, I wanted to get to Formula One and now that wish will become reality next season.
"I had a brief taste of working with the Toro Rosso team, when I drove for them at the Silverstone test and I enjoyed the experience very much. The fact I am based in Italy and speak Italian will, I am sure, help me to become part of the team very quickly.”
The Russian will be hoping to win the GP3 title at Abu Dhabi next weekend.
