China’s first and only Formula One driver, Guanyu Zhou will remain with Alfa Romeo next season after the Swiss-based team announced a contract extension yesterday.
Zhou, 23, made his F1 debut this year and has scored six points from 16 races, compared with 46 for Finnish teammate Valtteri Bottas.

The announcement was expected and provided another boost for Chinese fans a week after Formula One published a record 24-race calendar for 2023 with the Chinese Grand Prix in Shanghai scheduled to return for the first time since 2019.
Zhou’s confirmation leaves less than a handful of seats still potentially open on the 2023 grid.
