The Formula One team Alfa Romeo has confirmed that Zhou Guanyu would continue to be a part of the squad for the 2023 season. In this year’s Bahrain Grand Prix, Zhou made history by becoming the first Chinese driver to compete in Formula One. He finished second against Valtteri Bottas, who had won 10 races with the same team.
The former F2 driver had a good season with Bottas, but mechanical issues have kept him from scoring as often as the Finn, and Alfa is slipping back towards the middle of the pack after a great start to the season.
Zhou is now 17th in the standings after 16 races after finishing 10th at Bahrain, 8th in Canada, and 10th in Monza.
So far, his most memorable Grand Prix moment occurred in the British Grand Prix, when he was turned over by George Russell in the Mercedes and leapt the tyre barrier at the start.
Miraculously, he avoided serious injury and returned to action a week later in Austria.
I need to know Zhou’s opinion.
With Alfa’s confirmation of Zhou for 2023, there are now just three available seats on the grid.
Pierre Gasly is confirmed to drive for AlphaTauri in 2023, but it is widely assumed that he will also drive for Alpine if Red Bull is unable to draft in a replacement for him. The second seats at Alpine, Haas, and Williams have not yet been filled.
Zhou expressed his gratitude for Alfa Romeo for allowing him to be a member of the squad for another year.
“Making it to Formula 1 was a lifelong goal of mine, and the thrill of racing in my first race will be with me forever. The team has been so encouraging and helpful, welcome me with open arms and preparing me to take on the most challenging series in motorsport.
“The effort that we have put in together since the beginning of the year is only the beginning of where we want to go next season, and there is more that I want to do in this sport and with the club.
As the author puts it, “there is still a lot to learn, a lot to grow, but I am confident in our work: I am looking forward to the next chapter of our tale together.”
