In 2016, Gasly competed in the series, driving for Prema Racing, and had one of his best performances at Silverstone.

The Frenchman claimed pole position after topping the charts in both practice and qualifying.

The race was an intense one, and Gasly had to fight hard to maintain his position at the top.

2018 Bahrain Grand Prix – Pierre Gasly 4th

Gasly made his Formula One debut in 2017, driving for Toro Rosso, the sister team of Red Bull Racing.

His first season was a mixed bag, but he showed plenty of potential and promise. In 2018, he returned to the team for another season, and made headlines with his incredible performance at the Bahrain Grand Prix.

The race was chaotic and dramatic, with several top drivers retiring due to technical issues or accidents.

Gasly managed to avoid all the carnage and held his nerve during the safety car periods, which were caused by some of the incidents.

He steadily moved up the order and found himself battling with the likes of Kevin Magnussen and Nico Hulkenberg.

Despite the pressure, Gasly did not give up and finally crossed the finish line in an impressive fourth place, securing his best result in Formula One up to that point.

He was overjoyed, and his performance was widely lauded by fans, journalists, and his peers alike.

2020 Italian Grand Prix – Pierre Gasly 1st

The 2020 Italian Grand Prix will go down in history as one of the most unexpected and exhilarating races in Formula One history.

Gasly, who had moved back to AlphaTauri after a disappointing stint at Red Bull Racing, was not considered one of the top contenders for the win.

However, he defied expectations and showed his incredible talent by winning the race against all odds.

The race was held at Monza, and Gasly qualified in tenth place. However, several high profile drivers, including Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen, suffered from mishaps and disqualifications.

This opened up the race for Gasly, who steadily moved up the field and found himself in third place by the end of the first lap.

The Frenchman then engaged in an intense battle with Carlos Sainz and Lance Stroll for the lead.

Despite the pressure, he kept his cool and made a daring move to take the lead in the final laps of the race.

He crossed the finish line in first place, securing his maiden Formula One victory and becoming the first French driver to win a race in 24 years.
