Renault team welcomes Zhou GuanyuJanuary 22, 2019
The Chinese driver joined the team of Formula 1 “Renault”, where he will perform the role of test pilot in the youth development program.
Despite the fact that Zhou is still in the program of the Ferrari Driver Academy (and most likely he will leave it soon), he has already signed a contract with the French team. In the future season, the young racer will work on a simulator, with engineers in a briefing, and also take part in Formula 2 as part of the former Russian Time.
Zhou expressed his impatience to start working in a team that has serious ambitions: “I am very happy to be part of Renault Sport Racing, an academy listener and a team development driver. I know that the company occupies an important role in China, so I feel pride in representing her and my country in the world of motor sport. ”
“There will be a lot of competition this season, so in a short period I have to do a lot of work. In the offseason, I worked a lot, including the three-day tests F-2 in Abu Dhabi. Now Renault’s advice will be useful to me, since I intend to win. ”
In the meantime, the Mexican rally driver Benito Guerra won the World Cup.
