Alfa Romeo have confirmed that Guanyu Zhou will become the first Chinese driver in Formula One history when he races for the team in 2022. ‘To be the first ever Chinese driver in Formula One is a breakthrough for Chinese motorsport history.’. The Chinese driver will make his on-track debut with Alfa in the Abu Dhabi young driver test in December after the final race of the season. Zhou will face a tough test next season alongside the experienced Bottas who has won ten races during his five-year stint at Mercedes. Mercedes decided to part ways with Bottas for next season after five years alongside Lewis Hamilton. He will be replaced by Williams driver George Russell who has come through the Mercedes junior driver programme.
