Podcast: What to expect from Zhou in F1

Nov 16 2021

Guanyu Zhou’s prospects for his rookie season with Alfa Romeo in 2022 and his impact on Formula 1 as the first Chinese race driver are discussed in the latest episode of The Race F1 podcast.

Scott Mitchell and, for the first time, The Race assistant editor Josh Suttill join Edd Straw to look at Zhou’s progress through the junior ranks and what qualities he will bring to the Sauber-run team alongside Valtteri Bottas next year.

But with Zhou becoming a focal point for grand prix racing’s growth in China’s and potentially paving the way for a second race in the world’s most populous country, he could also have a profound impact on F1.

We also ask if there’s any injustice that fellow Alpine Academy driver Oscar Piastri, who is on target to beat Zhou to the F2 title in his rookie season at that level, missed out on the drive.

And we look at how the Bottas/Zhou partnership will work and where it ranks among the 10 line-ups next season.
