Pierre Gasly joins BWT Alpine F1® Team ahead of the 2023 FIA Formula 1 World Championship ready to take on his sixth full season in the sport.
Pierre started his Formula 1 career at Scuderia Toro Rosso having impressively progressed through the junior formulae with driver titles in 2013 in Formula Renault Eurocup and in 2017 in the GP2 Series. His talents caught the eye of Red Bull Racing who nurtured his career until the end of the 2022 campaign. Since his Formula 1 debut in Malaysia midway through 2017, Pierre has amassed 108 race starts, scored 332 points, claimed three podium finishes as well as a famous Grand Prix win, which he emotionally achieved at the 2020 Italian Grand Prix in Monza.
The Frenchman is well known to the Renault family having competed in Formula Renault categories during his teenage years as well as racing for the Renault e.dams Formula E team for two races in 2017. Pierre is well prepared for his Alpine debut in 2023, having sampled the A522 in last season’s Abu Dhabi Test.
Ahead of joining BWT Alpine F1® Team for the 2023 season, Pierre rounded his time with Red Bull Racing / AlphaTauri by finishing fourteenth in the championship after a challenging campaign for the Italy-based team. Pierre announced his new chapter in October ahead of the Japanese Grand Prix before testing for Alpine at the post-season test in Abu Dhabi.
Pierre entered the 2021 season as the latest Grand Prix winner. After a difficult start in Bahrain, Pierre became a regular points-scorer and the season’s surprise package. A third-place finish in Azerbaijan capped a stellar season where he also claimed big points in the Netherlands and Mexico City with fourth-place finishes. He ended the season on a career best in F1® with 110 points in ninth place.
Pierre remained with the rebranded Toro Rosso squad – named Scuderia AlphaTauri – for 2020 in the curtailed Covid-hit season. Top-ten finishes were regular for Pierre before he achieved the improbable: a first Grand Prix victory. Pierre drove calmly in the incident-packed race in Monza to put himself in contention for the win before coolly fending off challengers behind to take the chequered flag. Pierre finished the year in tenth place in the Drivers’ Championship.
His performances in 2018 earned a call-up to Red Bull Racing, joining up with Max Verstappen. Points were frequent for Pierre with standout performances in Monaco with fifth place plus the fastest lap of the race and in Silverstone with fourth place. Pierre went back to Toro Rosso after the summer break and claimed his first podium in Formula 1 with a sensational second-place finish in Brazil.
Pierre was confirmed for a full-time seat in 2018 for Toro Rosso alongside Brendon Hartley. He immediately impressed with a season-best fourth place in round two in Bahrain. Pierre ended the campaign in fifteenth, scoring 29 points.
Pierre made his Formula 1 debut in the 2017 Malaysian Grand Prix at Scuderia Toro Rosso, finishing in fourteenth place. He continued with the team for the remainder of the year – bar the United States Grand Prix due to a clash with Super Formula – with a best finish of twelfth in Brazil.
After playing competitive football as a child, Pierre switched passions at the age of ten when he began karting in the French Minime Championship, competing with Esteban. By the age of 13, Pierre progressed his karting career to European level, finishing runner-up in the CIK FIA European Championship.
His first taste of single-seaters came in 2011 when he took part in the French F4 Championship – finishing third – before he stepped up to Formula Renault Eurocup in 2012. A year later, he won his first drivers’ title in Eurocup and in 2014, Pierre finished second in the Formula Renault 3.5 Series.
After multiple tests for Scuderia Toro Rosso, Pierre was confirmed as Reserve Driver for Red Bull Racing in 2015. He then won GP2 at the second attempt with a Formula 1 call-up from the Austrian team knocking. After finishing runner-up in Super Formula in Japan and a one-off entry in Formula E, Pierre’s opportunity at the pinnacle of motorsport arrived, filling in at Scuderia Toro Rosso at the 2017 Malaysian Grand Prix before taking a full-time role for the 2018 FIA Formula 1 World Championship.
