Pierre Gasly made his Formula One debut in 2017 for the Toro Rosso team. He filled in for the ousted Daniil Kvyat for two races before Brendon Hartley replaced him in the United States. Later, when Carlos Sainz left for Renault, Gasly returned for the remainder of the season.
He made his full-time debut in 2018, alongside Kiwi teammate Hartley, for Toro Rosso. His impressive performances in the sister team earned him a call-up to the Red Bull Formula 1 team for the 2019 season.
Unfortunately, he was fairly underwhelming when pitted against the Dutch phenom, Max Verstappen. So, he was demoted to Toro Rosso mid-season- after the race in Hungary. Following this, his performances displayed a complete 180.
Having only just started his F1 career, the young Frenchman does not boast of such significant records or performances. His best was a 2nd place finish in Brazil in 2019.
Sadly, as mentioned before, he wilted under the pressure and was demoted to Toro Rosso as a result. However, he has suddenly regained his mojo, and it has translated to a welcome maiden podium in Brazil.
In a relatively short career spanning merely 47 Grand Prix starts, Gasly’s scored 124 points and 2 fastest laps, with one podium to his name. He achieved a career-best finish of seventh in the Championship standings last year.
Gasly is currently dating Italian Caterina Masetti Zannini, who is believed to be pursuing a career in Aerospace engineering.
In 2016, Gasly was involved in a serious accident in Silverstone, which left his mother critically injured. The crash injured Pierre’s vertebrae.
“I was in the back, in the middle,” recalled Pierre. “My mother was sitting to my left. We crashed, overturned four times and the car ended 50 metres from the road, on the roof!
“There was blood everywhere — everywhere I saw blood. I thought my mother would die. She could not breathe and was scared to death, like me,”
Gasly’s mother spent 90 days in intensive care and is recovering after undergoing multiple surgeries.
Since he is part of the Red Bull family, he is sponsored by the Austrian giant. He also announced a partnership with Crypto Gaming in November.
Gasly is currently sponsored by headphone brand Blomm and Berger, Driver management agency – The Grid and Destination Grand Prix.
Gasly supports various causes like a foundation that lends support to people affected by Cystic Fibrosis.
Pierre Gasly recently participated in the #restezchezvoustrophy– an eSports tournament that hosted FIFA matches to raise money as an aid in the fight against Coronavirus.
