Pierre Gasly is a 26-year-old French F1 driver who currently represents the AlphaTauri team. Gasly has had a career filled with ups and downs. He was promoted to Red Bull Racing from Toro Rosso in 2019. However, his season was not good enough with them and hence he was replaced by Sergio Pérez the following year.
However, Gasly came back stronger and won his first race title with AlphaTauri by winning the Italian Grand Prix in 2021, also accomplishing three podium finishes with them. In 2021, he managed only one podium, but going into 2022, Gasly will look to add to his tally of podiums and get a few more wins under his belt.
