Laurent Rossi says Alpine is currently busy finding alternative places in motorsport for its youngsters. It also appears that the Alpine boss is giving an important hint about Guanyu Zhou’s future in Formula 1.
Antonio Giovinazzi’s future at Alfa Romeo is very uncertain. Now that Ferrari is no longer in control of its seat, it is up to Alfa Romeo itself to make a decision. The Italian recently indicated that he hasn’t had any discussions yet about his future, so he has no idea if he will continue to drive in Formula 1 in 2022. The Swiss team has plenty of alternatives, because there are plenty of drivers ready to get in. Nick de Vries, Callum Ilott, Nico Hulkenberg, Oscar Biastri and Cho are just a few of the names on the Swiss national team’s long list.
Zhou in particular is often associated with this chair. According to a number of sources, he was going to sign a contract, although, of course, this is still speculation. The young driver actually belongs to the Alpine training program, but this team has nowhere to park at the moment, with Fernando Alonso and Esteban Ocon already in place. At the same time, other alpine youngsters are patiently waiting for their opportunities.

An alternative scenario for Zhou
“The lack of places in Formula 1 was unexpected when we brought in our kids,” Rossi said. Cars, cars and sports. “All these guys are good guys and we’re trying to live up to that and find something for them,” he says. “For now we can only make sure that they all have a good future in racing.” Like, for example [Christian] Lundgaard in the United States. “Rossi is very reticent about Zhou.” We also have a scenario in mind for Zhou, maybe something else will come for him. He deserves it because he is a very talented driver. With this said, the director appears to be hinting a bit at a switch to Alfa Romeo, but whether that really is the case remains a mystery at the moment.
