Daniil Kvyat will return to Formula One at the United States Grand Prix with Toro Rosso, the team has announced.
The Russian driver was replaced in the team’s line-up by Pierre Gasly two races ago. However with Carlos Sainz Jnr making an early move to Renault, Kvyat will now return alongside Gasly.
The news means Gasly will miss the final Japanese Super Formula round at Suzuka. He lies second in the championship, half a point behind Hiroaki Ishiura.
Kvyat has scored four points so far this year. His most recent points finish was ninth in the Spanish Grand Prix.
The 23-year-old made his Formula One debut with Toro Rosso in 2014 and was promoted to Red Bull the following year. However he lost his seat four races into last season and returned to Toro Rosso.
