Frederic Vasseur explains the confirmation of Guanyu Zhou

Alfa Romeo team principal Frederic Vasseur explained the reasons for confirming Guanyu Zhou at the wheel of the Italian single-seater ahead of the upcoming Formula 1 season.

“From the first day of work with the team, I could see his very positive approach. We knew his skills in terms of speed, but the speed with which he adapted to the world of Formula 1 was one of the surprises of the season for us,” said the French executive, praising the Chinese driver’s adaptability.

“He is a very nice guy. In the team, both his personality and his attitude were very impressive. He had the humility to ask questions, to the engineers as well as to Valtteri, an attitude that allowed him to use all the information to progress race after race. Next season he will be able to count on this important experience and I am sure he will be able to take another step forward together with the whole team,” concluded Frederic Vasseur.
