Haas F1 driver Romain Grosjean doesn't think Pierre Gasly was at fault for impeding him during qualifying for the Monaco Grand Prix, as the 33-year-old...
Pierre Gasly is a French Formula 1 driver who drives for Red Bull Racing. After only one season, the 23-year-old was promoted from Toro Rosso to Red Bull after Daniel Ricciardo left the team for Renault at the end of the 2018 season.
Gasly put himself on the map when he spectacularly finished in fourth place in Bahrain for Toro Rosso in 2018.

Route to Formula 1
Gasly started karting in 2006 and moved up to the international scene in 2009 where the Frenchman entered in the KF3 category where he finished runner up in the CIK-FIA European Championship.
In 2011 Gasly made his debut in single seater racing when he took part in the French F4 Championship. He finished the season in third and won multiple races throughout the season, most notably Spa and Le Castellet.
Gasly stepped up to race in the 2 litre version of the Formula Renault machinery in 2012 and had a mixed season in which he finished 10th.
For the 2013 season the Frenchman moved to Tech 1 Racing where he won five podiums with three victories. He managed to win the series after some close racing with Oliver Rowland.
In 2014 Gasly stepped up to race in the Formula Renault 3.5 series and was subsequently signed by Arden under the Red Bull Junior development programme. He finished the season in second place losing out to Carlos Sainz Jnr who won the title.
Pierre Gasly started to race in GP2 in 2014 when he stepped in for Tom Dillmann who had commitments racing for another Formula for the weekend.
Gasly won the 2016 GP2 series, opening up an opportunity to race in Formula 1 with Toro Rosso for the 2017 season as he replaced Daniil Kvyat for a number of races.
Formula 1 career
In 2015 Red Bull announced that Pierre Gasly would be their reserve driver for the season.
Toro Rosso signed the Frenchman full time for the 2018 season and finished the season 15th in the driver's championship. Gasly had great success in Bahrain in 2018 when he finished the race in 4th having qualified in 5th. Toro Rosso were thrilled with the result and the Frenchman had established himself as a fast driver.
Gasly would establish a good relationship with Honda whilst at Toro Rosso. The team managed to get some solid performance out of the engine, something which McLaren had struggled to do the year before.
For the 2019 season Gasly was signed by Red Bull to race alongside Max Verstappen. Although Gasly is two years older than his teammate he will very much be the number two driver at the team as he has had a lot less experience in Formula 1 than the Dutchman.
In 2017 Pierre Gasly replaced Sebastian Buemi for the Formula E New York ePrix. In his first race he finished 7th after qualifying in 19th position. In his second race he came fourth after a collision in the wall meant that he couldn’t compete for 3rd place.
In the February of 2017 it was announced that Gasly would join Team Mugen and drive a Red Bull sponsored Honda at the 2017 Super Formula Championship. Gasly finished second overall after picking up two race wins and scoring 33 points across the seven races.
Gasly will hope that he impresses Red Bull in his first season as in the past they have been ruthless about sacking drivers who were not immediately fast, like Daniil Kvyat.
The team has very much been structured around Verstappen but Gasly will hope that he can make a name for himself at the team and establish himself as a top driver.
