Red Bull's rookie driver Daniil Kvyat talks to AOL Cars

He may be Infiniti Red Bull Racing's rookie driver for 2015, replacing four times world champion Sebastian Vettel, but that hasn't meant 21-year-old Daniil Kvyat has played second fiddle to teammate Daniel Ricciardo.

There might have been a few raised eyebrows when the youngster was picked to step up from sister team Torro Rosso for the 2015 season, but going into this weekend's finale, the Abu Dabhi Grand Prix, the Russian racer currently leads his team mate by 10 points in the driver's championship, lying seventh to the Aussie's eighth.
