PIQUET ON HAMILTON: “NEGUINHO SHOULD GIVE MORE C*”.

Guanyu Zhou is making Alfa Romeo happy in such a way that the possibility of him staying with the team beyond 2022 is already a real possibility. According to a German magazine Cars and Sports and a Swiss newspaper ClickHinwil team boss Frédéric Vasseur is convinced that the first Chinese driver in Formula 1 history deserves a contract extension.

Alfa Romeo sporting director Beat Zehnder hinted that the team would not be sending the 23-year-old away after just one season and called Zhou “one of the best players” the Hinwil team has ever had on its driver list.

“Usually with new kids, you always have to rely on one or two hits. But Zhou does not make mistakes in practice. Experience tells us that there must be a collision at some point in the future, but that is also part of the learning process. He is definitely one of the players the best we’ve ever had on our team,” Zehnder said.

The stream of praise for Zhou has not yet begun. Recently, Xevi Pujolar, head of athletics engineering at Alfa Romeo, and Frédéric Vasseur, team principal, said that the main characteristic of the Chinese rocker is his maturity and also his ability to manage the tires.

Pujolar went further and said that if Zhou is able to perform at his usual level of performance, then the Chinese will have “a bright future in Formula 1”.

After his best result of the year – 8th place in Montreal – Zhou is looking to set his sights on the 2022 Formula 1 season at Silverstone, at the British GP, the 10th round of the season. O BIG PRIZES are accompanied LIVE and in REAL TIME all weekend activities.
