EDIFICE and Scuderia Toro Rosso
In February 2016 EDIFICE joined the Scuderia Toro Rosso team on the starting grid in the premier league of motor racing. The brand has a close affiliation with the young racing team, which is regarded as a key hub for developing talent within the industry. A hunger for maximum precision, technical innovation and drive is common to both partners. The up-and-coming racing team has ambitious plans. Scuderia Toro Rosso and EDIFICE are now putting the pedal to the metal together — in the fast lane, of course.

Daniil had his first encounter with motor sports at the age of 9, when he spotted a go-kart track on the way home from school and begged his parents to let him have a go. He turned out to be a natural, and was soon racing in events throughout Russia. Before long, he had gone as far as he could go in his home country. In 2007, the entire Kvyat family moved to Rome, the hub of European kart racing.
In 2008, Daniil came third in the KF3 European Championship and finished as runner-up in the WSK International Series. He eventually started his formula racing career in 2010, starting in Formula BMW Europe and Pacific as part of the Red Bull Junior Team driver development programme. In the following winter he showed off his talents during the Toyota Racing Series in New Zealand. In 2011 he returned to Europe, and was promoted to Formula Renault 2.0. He completed full seasons in the Eurocup and the North European Cup in this category.
Daniil Kvyat debuted in the 2014 Australian Grand Prix at the age of 19. He finished in ninth place, breaking Sebastian Vettel's record for the youngest points scorer in the premier league of motor sports. In 2015 he competed for Red Bull Racing, staying there until the start of the 2016 European racing season when he moved back to Scuderia Toro Rosso.
Carlos Sainz, son of the former world rally champion of the same name, began go-karting at the age of 7 and started racing three years later. He brought home various karting titles between 2006 and 2009, including the Asia-Pacific KF3 Championship and the European and Monaco KF3 Kart Cups. In 2010 he joined the Red Bull Junior Team, racing in Formula BMW Europe and Pacific and winning the Formula BMW Rookie Cup in Europe. The young Spaniard's victory at the Formula Renault 2.0 Northern European Cup in 2011 followed yet another brilliant performance. In 2012 he competed in both the British and the European F3 championships, and in the following year he made a successful debut in GP3. In 2014 he achieved his most important win to date in the Formula Renault 3.5 World Series. Following another successful year in 2015, he is now competing in his second season in the premier league of motor sports, behind the wheel of an STR11.
