FIA Formula 2 championship contender, Guanyu Zhou, isn’t putting an end to the speculation as to whether he will make a move to Alfa Romeo this season.

He neither confirmed or denied being offered the final Formula 1 seat for the 2022 season but did indicate this could be his last opportunity to win the F2 Drivers’ Championship.

“I haven’t made a final decision about my future. But it’s pretty much my last season in F2.”

Whilst being linked with the Italian outfit, he remains committed to the task ahead:

“I’m not really putting my focus on anything else, just the F2 championship.

“This year is all about putting everything into good results. I’m just trying to perform as much as I can for the team and myself.”

The pressures of performing to not only win a series championship, but also to impress the biggest names in motorsport is a constant, as Zhou said, “Everyone in the F1 paddock is watching you.”

Despite the distractions of media and pit lane predictions, The UNI-Virtuosi driver has his eyes firmly fixed on the weekend ahead in Monza.

With just five points difference at the top of the standings, Zhou qualified third, behind championship leader Oscar Piastri, in a mixed session of bunched traffic and tyre choice.

He overcame his P8 in the first run, to leap up the order to third on the grid for Sunday’s Feature Race.

His summary of the current speculation, and his weekend ahead was, “Later we will know better who will have the [Alfa Romeo] seat. But for now, there’s still a championship to be winning.”
