Pierre Gasly, born February 7, 1996 in Rouen (Seine-Maritime), is a French racing driver, former member of the French Circuit FFSA team and the Red Bull Junior Team.

Winner of the 2016 GP2 Series Championship, he made his Formula 1 debut with Scuderia Toro Rosso, at the 2017 Malaysian Grand Prix where he replaced Daniil Kvyat. Starting in this team in 2018, he scored his first points by finishing fourth in the Bahrain Grand Prix. The following year, he joined the Red Bull Racing team, alongside Max Verstappen. After a disappointing first half of the season, he was replaced by Alexander Albon at the Belgian Grand Prix and returned to Toro Rosso; for his 46th start in the sport, in Brazil, he became, at 23 years, 9 months and 10 days, the youngest Frenchman to reach a podium.

Gasly keeps his steering wheel for the 2020 championship, whereas the team is renamed AlphaTauri; during the Italian Grand Prix, he wins the first victory of his career and becomes the thirteenth French driver, and the youngest, to win in Formula 1, twenty-four years after Olivier Panis in Monaco in 1996. Reappointed to AlphaTauri, he obtained his third podium in Baku and finished the season with more than 100 points in the drivers’ standings.

After a difficult last year with the Italian team, Pierre Gasly joined Alpine in 2023.
