Guanyu Zhou‘s consistency continued as he achieved fourth podium of the 2021 FIA Formula 2 season so far.

The UNI-Virtuosi driver managed to hold on to third in the first Sprint Race, and extends his drivers’ championship lead to 23 points.

Heading into Round 3 off the back of victory in Monaco, Zhou stated how tight the margin for error continues to be this weekend.

“Obviously I’ve been here before back in 2019, but I think coming from Monaco to here is a huge difference.

“You have to push always to the limit on braking and it’s so easy to lock even the rears or the front and missing the corners.”

Zhou is one of only four drivers to have raced around the streets of Baku in Formula 2, alongside Ralph Boschung, Roy Nissany and Jack Aitken.

His experience has proved to be crucial in getting up to speed quickly on the 18-inch tyres, with the track heavily punishing mistakes.

“In Practice, we are not getting a lot of laps in every track we go to, so it is really difficult. Also, it’s important to be efficient straight away, to be on the point.

“F2 is not easy. We don’t get a lot of track time like Formula 1, so all the drivers have to get on with it.

Formula 2 has proven itself to be a learning curve for many. Yet at the moment, it looks as though Zhou has firmly made his mark on the championship this year.

He will start the second Sprint Race this afternoon from eighth on the grid, the same position he qualified in for Feature Race tomorrow.

Will Zhou continue to hold the championship lead after Round 3 concludes?
