Pierre Gasly commended the Kansas City Chiefs for their victory in the Super Bowl against the San Francisco 49ers. Gasly, a Formula 1 driver, expressed his admiration for the Chiefs’ stellar win in a recent Instagram post. The Frenchman, who is a fan of the team, shared a photo of the live coverage showing quarterback Patrick Mahomes celebrating the victory. Gasly described the match as “absolutely incredible” and expressed his joy over the Chiefs’ success. As a prominent figure in the F1 paddock, Gasly’s support for the NFL is not surprising.
Formula 1 is a global sport that requires significant financial investment from teams each season. To secure additional funding, F1 teams often seek outside investors who are willing to acquire a stake in the team in exchange for lucrative financial support. Notably, NFL stars Travis Kelce and Patrick Mahomes have invested in Gasly’s current team, the Alpine F1 team. The Super Bowl LVIII champions joined forces with Kelce and Mahomes to become part-owners of the Enstone-based F1 team, acquiring a 24% stake for $217 million. This partnership between NFL and F1 highlights the convergence of two prestigious sports.
While Gasly showed his support for the Kansas City Chiefs at the Super Bowl, his focus will now shift to the upcoming Formula 1 season. As a driver for Alpine, Gasly is determined to achieve positive results for the French team. With high expectations and the need to perform well, Gasly will strive to make significant progress in the upcoming races.
