Pierre Jean-Jacques Gasly was born on February 7, 1996, to father Jean-Jacques Gasly and mother Pascale Gasly. He was born in Rouen, France, and he also represents France in his racing career.
Like almost every driver who made it all the way to Formula One, the Frenchman's talent was evident from the early days. In 2016, Gasly won the GP2 Series championship, and one year after that, he finished second in the 2017 Super Formula Championship, trailing champion Hiroaki Ishiura only by half a point and recording the joint-most wins, two.
Still, in 2017, Gasly made his debut in F1 when he drove for Scuderia Toro Rosso at the 2017 Malaysian Grand Prix, replacing Daniil Kvyat in the team. However, the French driver missed the 2017 United States Grand Prix, as he was still competing in the Super Formula Championship, and the race at the Circuit of the Americas clashed with his race in the Super Formula.
In 2018, Gasly completed a full Formula One season for the Red Bull Toro Rosso Honda, where he teamed up with Brendon Hartley. The Frenchman outscored his teammate (29-4), and deserved a promotion to Red Bull Racing in 2019.
Yet, he completed only the first 12 races in Red Bull, as he was replaced by Alex Albon for the 2019 Belgian Grand Prix, and the Thai driver remained in the Red Bull seat until the end of the season.
In the following three seasons, Gasly raced for Scuderia AlphaTauri, and even though he didn't produce many memorable moments during his career in Red Bull's so-called B team, he won his only race in AlphaTauri, when he surprised everyone at the 2020 Italian Grand Prix at the Monza Circuit.
A three-year stint at AlphaTauri ended with an eventual move to the Alpine F1 Team, where he completed his first Formula One season in the team in 2023 alongside fellow Frenchman Esteban Ocon.
