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.

Details:

  • 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.”
