Alonso hopes Andretti’s bid for Formula 1 team will be successful

Fernando Alonso says he hopes Michael Andretti’s bid to join a new Formula 1 team will be successful.

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

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

“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 ability, the resources, they have the talent to be in Formula 1 and be competitive too. ” . So I hope that this thing will happen in the next few years, and I will follow very closely.

Alfa Romeo impressed by Zhou’s racecraft

Alfa Romeo ground engineering manager Xevi Pujolar said he was impressed with Zhou Guanyu’s racing know-how and his ability to overtake in the race.

Rookie Zhou has scored one point so far this season on his Bahrain Grand Prix debut and is yet to reach Q3 so far in 2022 meaning he has had to work his way up to through the peloton in the races. Pujolar says Zhou has shown he has the ability to pass despite his lack of experience.

“He was shown that in every race, when he fights with someone, he overtakes the guy,” Pujolar said.

“He’s not someone who gets stuck for 15 laps behind a competitor. He arrives there and he exceeds. So on that one, I think it’s encouraging, the racecraft that it shows. And for Barcelona with all the updates, hopefully we’ll have two strengths contenders.
