Pierre Gasly, the driver who surprised us all by achieving an incredible first podium for him and another podium for his team. He has had a tough season. He initially started with Red Bull Racing due to his promotion from Toro Rosso to the senior team. During the preseason, he had two big crashes and maybe, those crashes were the ones who broke his confidence. Anyway, he started the season with Red Bull, but their results were not the ones that Christian Horner’s team were looking for. After a very tough first half of the 2019 season, he was demoted back to Toro Rosso. When the Austrian team decided this, they were very criticized because they didn’t let Pierre to finish an entire season with them, but they still continued with the process of demotion. Back with Toro Rosso, the Frenchman managed to build again his confidence and he achieved great results. From getting some passes to Q3 in many GPs to achieving a podium last week in Brazil. And we’re going to talk about this last achievement.
Pierre Gasly started sixth in the Brazilian Grand Prix and he took advantage of every single situation he was presented in. He even beat Lewis Hamilton’s Mercedes in the final straight. He deserved to be in the podium and he also broke a record while achieving this. Pierre Gasly is the youngest Frenchman to step into the podium. Even though, he is the 27° youngest driver to finish on a podium position, he beat Jean Alesi, who was 25 years and 9 months. In the other hand is Pierre, who was 23 years, 9 months and 10 days when he achieved his first podium ever. How many records will the Frenchman break in the future?
