Guanyu Zhou is on Alfa Romeo’s list of candidates for a 2022 race seat but Fred Vasseur doesn’t seem swayed by the €30million that would come with him.
According to reports, Zhou’s sponsors are prepared to pay Alfa Romeo €30million to put the Chinese driver in a seat for next season.
Alfa Romeo is the only team with question marks about its line-up, with the second seat alongside Valtteri Bottas yet to be confirmed.
While Antonio Giovinazzi hopes his recent strong qualifying performances will play out in his favour, his single point in the championship may not.
As such reports suggest his days with Alfa Romeo, and in Formula 1, are numbered with Zhou, second in the Formula 2 championship, leading the running alongside Sauber protégé Theo Pourchaire.
