In brief

Alonso hopes Andretti’s Formula 1 team bid succeeds

Fernando Alonso says he hopes Michael Andretti’s bid to enter a new team in Formula 1 is successful.

Alonso raced in the Indy 500 in 2017 with a McLaren team heavily supported by Andretti, leading 27 laps of the race before an engine failure forced him into retirement. Michael Andretti is currently lobbying for a future entry for the Andretti name into Formula 1, which Alonso says he supports fully.

“It could be a big thing,” said Alonso. “I know Michael very well, I know the Andretti family and they are obviously a big part of motor sport in general and they are legends. So if we can have them in Formula 1 that will be the best news, I think for both.

“Formula 1 would benefit from that and obviously Michael and his team will benefit from the sport and from being in Formula 1. And I think they have the capabilities, the resources, they have the talent to be in Formula 1 and be competitive as well . So I hope this thing comes true in the next few years, and I will follow very closely.”

Alfa Romeo impressed by Zhou’s racecraft

Alfa Romeo’s head of trackside engineering, Xevi Pujolar, says that he is impressed by Zhou Guanyu’s racecraft and ability to overtake in races.

Rookie Zhou has scored one point so far this season on his debut in the Bahrain Grand Prix and has yet to reach Q3 so far in 2022, meaning he has had to makes his way through the field in races. Pujolar says that Zhou has shown he has the ability to overtake despite his lack of experience.

“He has been shown that in every race, when he’s fighting with someone, he’s overtaking the guy,” Pujolar said.

“He’s not someone that gets stuck for 15 laps behind a competitor. He gets there and he overtakes. So on that one, I think it’s encouraging, the racecraft he’s showing. And for Barcelona with all the updates, we hope we will have two strong points contenders.”
