UNI-Virtuosi Racing have announced their first signing for the next season of the FIA Formula 2 Championship: Guanyu Zhou.

The Chinese driver competed in the FIA Formula 3 European Championship this season and scored 2 wins, 6 podiums, 3 pole positions and 1 fastest lap.

He is a very talented driver and rapidly got to grips with the F2 car. The championship is extremely tough and we feel Guanyu has the talent to progress quickly and have a very strong competitive year with us.”

Guanyu Zhou said: “I’m extremely happy to be joining UNI-Virtuosi racing for next season! The Abu Dhabi test was very positive and I am ready to have a good strong year with such a professional team.”
