Valtteri Bottas admitted being surprised at Guanyu Zhou’s lack of mistakes after the Chinese driver’s first year in Formula 1.

Zhou joined Bottas at the Alfa Romeo Racing team. The rookie achieved 6 points during the 2022 season out of the 55 team points in total. However, it implies a good result for a new driver like him, and his Finnish teammate praised his progress in the series.

“The biggest strength this year has been that he really hasn’t made any mistakes,” Bottas told Autosport.

“It’s not guaranteed as a rookie, and it’s a sport where it’s easy to try too much and too hard and make silly mistakes.

“But he’s been good on giving himself some time to develop and not wanting things too quickly. He’s been able to progress step by step, both in qualifying and then in race pace.

“His technical knowledge is getting better and better, he’s getting more confident on choosing the set-up for him. It’s been good to see the progress.”
