Frederic Vasseur admits that Guanyu Zhou is among the contenders for the 2022 Alfa Romeo Racing seat.
Why it matters: The second Alfa Romeo seat for the next season is still available with several drivers in contention for it, including Antonio Giovinazzi and Theo Pourchaire.
- Zhou is considered as possible new Valtteri Bottas’ teammate because of his performance in Formula 2.
- Vasseur admits that Pourchaire needs more time behind the wheel of an F1 car.
What he had to say:
- “Zhou is doing a good job in F2. For sure he is on the list. But it’s not only due to the fact that he is Chinese, that he is a frontrunner in F2. He won some races and I think every single team in F1 is looking after him.
- “We have to let to Theo the time to improve, and to build up not only the pace, because that he has the speed, but all the education around this.”
