Pierre Gasly has been one of the star performers in F1 this season, but who is his girlfriend and parents? How did his father make his fortune? How many brothers does he have?
Pierre Gasly’s strong form in the 2021 F1 season continued in qualifying for the Qatar Grand Prix, sticking his AlphaTauri fourth on the grid.
Only Lewis Hamilton, Max Verstappen, and Valtteri Bottas will start ahead of him in the 20th round of the season.
It’s just the latest standout performance from Gasly, who has gone from strength-to-strength since he was dropped from the main Red Bull team in mid-2019.
Who is the one-time grand prix winner’s girlfriend?
Was his father a racing driver himself, and just how many brothers does Gasly have?
Pierre Gasly’s girlfriend revealed
Gasly is in a relationship with Katerina Berezhna.
Berezhna is in Qatar supporting Gasly this weekend.
She was born in Ukraine in 1998, two years after Gasly in France.
Berezhna is a model and social media influencer.
Gasly was in a relationship with Italian aerospace engineer Caterina Massetti Zannini from 2018-2020.
Massetti Zannini (below) is now in a relationship with reserve F1, IndyCar and World Endurance driver Callum Ilott.
Pierre Gasly parents
Gasly was born in Rouen, in northern France in February 1996.
His parents are Jean-Jacques and Pascale Gasly.
HIs father Jean-Jacques was a racing driver himself, taking part endurance racing and rallying, among others.
In the late 1980s, Jean-Jacques started three rallies, and took a best finish of 15th on the Rallye Jeanne d’Arc.
Away from the race-track, Jean-Jacques Gasly made his fortune dealing in real estate.
He also dealt in the textile industry.
Going further back, Pierre Gasly’s grandmother Evelyn was a karting champion in the 1960s.
How many brothers does he have?
Pierre is the youngest of five half-siblings, all brothers.
Nicolas and Cyril are his half-brothers on his mother’s side, while his father had Phillipe and Paul from a previous relationship.
Taking up karting from an early age, Gasly quickly moved up through the ranks, entering car racing in 2011.
In 2014, he joined the famed Red Bull Junior programme, and was earmarked as a potential F1 driver.
He got his chance in 2017, moving full-time in 2018.
For 2019, he was promoted to replace Renault-bound Daniel Ricciardo at the senior Red Bull team alongside Max Verstappen.
He struggled, and was sent back to Toro Rosso during the summer break that year.
Since then, he’s scored three podium finishes in a midfield car, at best.
One of these was his victory at the 2020 Italian Grand Prix, where he became the first French driver to win in F1 since Olivier Panis in 1996.
