Pierre Gasly Biography

Pierre Gasly spent several years waiting to be the next off the production line from the Red Bull junior programme and a crazy couple of years have put the Frenchman in the top team for 2019 alongside Max Verstappen. Having impressed in Toro Rosso's first year with Honda power units, Gasly was selected as the man to replace Daniel Ricciardo, ahead of fellow academy graduate, and former junior series rival Carlos Sainz.

Before F1 and debut

Gasly was runner-up to Sainz in Formula Renault 3.5 in 2014 – the following year Sainz made his F1 debut for Toro Rosso. Gasly spent 2015 and 2016 in Formula 2, winning the title in the latter season with Prema Racing. Unable to spend another season at that level as champions cannot return to defend their crown, Gasly instead switched to Super Formula for 2017, where he was a title contender with Hiroaki Ishiura and Felix Rosenqvist. Daniil Kvyat's struggles in F1 that year saw Red Bull lose patience towards the end of the year, with Gasly replacing the Russian in Malaysia to make his F1 debut.
