After a career in clear progression since his start in karting, the driver from Barcelona became the 2012 F3Euroseries and F3 FIA European Champion, ranking as one of the greatest promises in the world of motorsport. A few months before he had also won the RTL Masters of F3 at Zandvoort (Netherlands).
As a reward for being crowned champion of the inaugural FIA F3 European Championship, Daniel would have the privilege of driving for Scuderia Ferrari, at a test that was held at the Italian circuit of Vallelunga. Daniel demonstrated rapid adaptation, completing a total of 45 laps.
On December 8, Daniel received his F3 FIA European Championship trophy at the annual gala that the International Automobile Federation organizes at the end of every season, this time in Istanbul.
