Toro Rosso driver Daniil Kvyat says he is 'honoured' to earn a seat with Red Bull for the 2015 season.

Reigning GP3 champion Kvyat will join Daniel Ricciardo at the team after it was confirmed that Sebastian Vettel will leave the squad at the end of the year.

"I found out this morning when I arrived at the track and I was very pleased about it," he told Sky Sports.

"Very honoured, happy, of course I have to thank Red Bull for this great opportunity.

"I believe first of all that I am a racing driver and at every race I will give my best, be flat out every race and I have five races left with Toro Rosso.

"I will still do my best, but it is nice of course to know where I will be next season. There will always be a little bit of thought towards that, but nevertheless I will be pushing hard."

Toro Rosso has yet to confirm a replacement for Kvyat.
