Zhou Guanyu “Residual Alfa Romeo F1 in 2023 has not been decided yet”[F1-Gate.com]

Guanyu Zhou has not decided to stay at Alfa Romeo F1 in 2023, but says he is not yet worried about being without a racing seat.

Zhou Guanyu, who made his debut as China’s first F1 driver this year, says Alfa Romeo F1 is “very happy” with his performance, but the Sauber-led F1 team will see Zhou Guanyu join Valtteri Bottas in 2023. We have not confirmed that we are still together.

“It’s my first year in F1, so the team is analyzing my performance,” said 23-year-old Guanyu Zhou.

“But the feedback is encouraging and the team is very happy with the job I did. I’m happy to work with them. I like working with them a lot.”

However, Guanyu Zhou’s one-year contract expires at the end of the season.

When asked about extending the contract, Zhou Guan-yu replied, “I haven’t received anything yet.

Some insiders expected Alfa Romeo F1 to use the opportunity of the recent Italian F1 Grand Prix to announce Zhou Guanyu’s 2023 contract.

When asked why it didn’t happen, Guanyu Zhou told El Mundo Deportivo: “Well, it’s because it hasn’t been decided yet.”

“We have a plan and we have to make a contractual decision based on the returns. We are talking about the future right now and everything looks promising, but we have to wait.”

But despite the uncertainty, Zhou Guanyu insists he is on track with his ultimate goal of one day fighting to become world champion.

“That’s what this job is all about,” Zhou Guanyu said.

“The first year my goal was to learn and improve my skills, but there will come a time when you want to fight for the podium and not just score points.”

“I would love to be in this position one day, but right now I’m trying to get it right in the first few years before I take this step.”
