Who Are Jean Jacques Gasly And Pascale Gasly? Pierre Gasly Parents

This article was last updated by on

Pierre Gasly’s parents, Jean Jacques Gasly and Pascale Gasly, come from a family with a racing connection. Jean and Pascale had kids from previous marriages before tying the knot.

The former teammate of Yuki Tsunodo, Pierre Gasly, bid goodbye to Alpha Tauri last season. Now starring for Alpine, Pierre races alongside his French teammate Esteban Ocon. 

Growing up in Rouen, France, Gasly is the youngest child of Jean and Pascale. He is also the only one who showed interest in racing, a sport that runs in the family’s blood.

A former Red Bull driver, Gasly currently stands 14th in the F1 list. His four points came from the first two races of the season at the Bahrain GP and the Saudi Arabian GP.

In the practice session for Miami Grand Prix, Gasly made good friends with the NFL star Tyreek Hill, with the video of two athletes showing their quick reflexes going viral. 

Pierre Gasly Parents, Jean Jacques Gasly And Pascale Gasly

Pierre Gasly’s parents, Jean and Pascale Gasly strived to help their son fulfill his F1 dream.

Unlike other F1 drivers, Pierre doesn’t come from an ultra-rich family. Without sponsors, the Frenchman probably would have never made it big time. 

But along with financial help, talent is also required to become an F1 driver, and Gasly’s talent was never in doubt. His father was the first one to recognize it. 

Jean Jacques Gasly had previously seen his father work with the French karting team in the 1960s. So, even he gave racing a go.

The father of the F1 driver competed in karting, endurance racing, and rallying. But didn’t pursue racing seriously and later opened a small printing business. 

Jean knew about his son’s interest in racing since Pierre turned six. Despite not being financially secure, Jean and Pascale decided to support their son’s dream.

Jean bought his son a second-hand kart and would revamp the engine and chains by himself. In hopes of their son getting a sponsor, Jean and Pascale even traveled to Uganda but later found out it was a scam.

Jean and Pascale were previously married with two kids each before they had Gasly. The couple is seen regularly at Gasly’s races, with the Frenchman dedicating his maiden F1 win to his parents in 2020.

The F1 driver Pierre Gasly has four half-brothers, two from each parent.

Philippe Gasly and Paul Gasly are his two brothers from his dad’s side, and Cyril Caron and Nicolas Caron are the two brothers from his mom’s side.

The Frenchman shares a strong bond with all four of his brothers, having been previously pictured with them during vacations.
