Fernando Alonso has commented on the announcement that Guanyu Zhou will drive for Alfa Romeo Racing in the 2022 F1 season.

Details:

  • Alonso has revealed his experience of working with Zhou at Alpine.
  • The Spaniard thinks that Formula 1 and China will benefit from Zhou’s coming.

What he had to say:

  • “Yes, yes I’m happy for him, he’s a nice kid and we obviously had him in the [Alpine] Academy this year so I had a few days with him in testing. Also last year when I was testing the old Renault on my comeback to the sport, I shared with Zhou a couple of days in Bahrain and Abu Dhabi.”
  • “We have a good relationship, as I said, happy for him with this opportunity.”
  • “In the same way, Antonio [Giovinazzi] is stepping out, which is always how it works in this sport but it’s good for Formula 1 in general, I think For China, for Zhou.”
