On Tuesday, it was officially confirmed that the new Alfa Romeo driver will be Guanyu Zhou of China. He will be a partner of Fin Valtteri Bottas, who is leaving the Mercedes team.
They will replace the Italian Antonio Giovinazzi and Finn Kimi Raikkonen, who have represented the colors of this team in the past three seasons. The last of the previously mentioned announced his decision to end his career.
Negotiations are underway with Kubica
The fate of Kubica, who has been reserve and test driver for Alfa Romeo Racing Orleans for the past two seasons, is still in the balance. All seats in Formula 1 cars are already taken, so there is only a role to play that is similar to the current one. The Swiss president is open to that.
“We are negotiating with Robert and I believe he will remain a part of this family,” Vasseur admitted in an interview with RacingNews365.com.
– In his case, I don’t know yet whether he will participate in another program at the same time. We will try to build something on this basis – he explained in an interview with Motorsport.com.
