Daniil Kvyat to lead G-Drive Racing on team’s WEC return – Former Formula 1 driver Daniil Kvyat will spearhead G-Drive Racing for the team’s LMP2 entry in this year’s FIA World Endurance Championship.

The successful driver, who so far has enjoyed three podiums in 110 F1 starts will drive the No. 26 entered Oreca 07 Gibson alongside teammates James Allen (Australia) and Rene Binder (Austria).

G-Drive Racing competed in the WEC full-time between 2012 and 2017, amassing LMP2 class victories and the World Championship crown in 2015. In addition to its success on the global stage, the RAF-entered team also won three titles and 10 races in the European Le Mans Series (ELMS).

Daniil Kvyat commented: “I am happy to join G-Drive Racing, without a doubt the most successful sportscar teams in the world. Endurance racing has always fascinated me and to compete in the legendary 24 hours of Le Mans, one of the most famous and prestigious races on the planet, is every driver’s dream but first I am looking forward to the first race in Sebring. This form of racing is a new challenge for me and the competition in this year’s FIA World Endurance Championship will be very tough, but together with my teammates and the G-Drive Racing team, we are ready to fight.”
