The latest highly anticipated F1 Tracks driver takeover has just landed, as Formula 1 driver Pierre Gasly curates a playlist of his top tracks.
The young Frenchman, who currently races for Scuderia AlphaTauri, recently secured his maiden F1 victory at the 2020 Italian Grand Prix and has selected some of his favourite tunes to inspire and motivate him both on and off the track. Pierre’s takeover features 22 different songs from an eclectic range of artists and genres, from Destiny’s Child iconic “Say My Name” to the 2019 funk carioca hit “Bola Rebola”, by Brazilian producer duo Tropkillaz, featuring J Balvin and Anitta.
When asked which music helps him power through a workout, Pierre highlighted US rap and in particular 50 Cent as the artist that motivates him the most.
