This week ahead of the Miami Grand Prix, 26-year-old racing driver Pierre Gasly said after meeting the very experienced basketball player Michael Jordan that “meeting him was the best experience I’ve ever had.”
For AlphaTauri, Gasly succeeded in the Formula One 2020 Italian Grand Prix for the first time in his life. He enjoyed dinner with former NBA player Jordan for nearly three hours. The former legend played for the NBA for 15 years in his life, winning six championship titles with the Chicago Bulls.
Jordan has become a symbol of inspiration after success in his sport, and he was inspired by the achievement of Nike’s Air Jordan range of sneakers. Last of the week, they held their meeting on Wednesday for the inaugural Miami Grand Prix at Hard Rock Stadium.
On 4 May 2022, Pierre Gasly shared a photo of dinner with Jordan on his Twitter account, and he can never forget this moment. Almost one lakh people have liked this post, and lots of good comments have also been given by fans. One fan wrote, hoping that he is lucky to be wearing the helmet; another wrote Look at that smile.
Every man says that meeting his ideal leads to dissatisfaction, but the opposite happened to me. This man is a legend, in another league the way he thinks. I got inspired a lot by them.
A helmet is seen in a Twitter post that Gasly gave to Jordan and, in return, got him to sign it on his Air Jordan so that he could keep it in his house.
