About:

Lik so many of his colleagues, Danii came up through the junior ranks of GP3 and Formula Renault, taking the GP3 championship in 2013. He made the move to Formula One the following season in the Red Bull junior team, Scuderia Toro Rosso. When Sebastian Vettel moved from Red Bull Racing to Ferrari at the end of 2014, Red Bull promoted Danii to race alongside Daniel Ricciardo in the 2015 season. It was this season where he scored his first ever podium finish, at the Hungarian Grand Prix, coming second to Sebastian Vettel. Sadly his time at Red Bull was short lived and in May of 2016 he was demoted back to Toro Rosso and Max Verstappen was promoted in his place.
