Guanyu Zhou: 2021 Net Worth, Salary and Endorsements

Guanyu Zhou is the latest Formula 2 driver to take a giant leap into the world of Formula 1. Hailing from Shanghai, Zhou is the first-ever Chinese driver to compete in the top-tier racing series. Zhou will be teaming up with 10-time Grand Prix winner, Valtteri Bottas, at Ferrari-powered Alfa Romeo Racing for the 2022 F1 season.

Albeit signing a deal with the Sauber-owned racing outfit, Zhou is currently competing in F2 and is one of the prime candidates to clinch the world championship title as well.

Unfortunately, as of now, his chances of securing the championship seem a bit too far-fetched as his Australian rival, Oscar Piastri, is leading the title race with an impeccable points gap in hand.

Zhou is currently a part of the Alpine Academy alongside his F2 colleagues, Piastri and Christian Lundgaard. Prior to joining Alpine, Zhou also spent a fair share of time working under the governance of Ferrari [Driver Academy].

Guanyu Zhou: Stats and On-Track Achievements

Zhou's greatest achievement, so far, is winning the 2021 F3 Asian Championship, racing for the Abu Dhabi Racing team by Prema. The soon-to-be Alfa Romeo driver was also the runner-up of the Italian F4 Championship back in 2015.

Coming to Formula 2, 2021 makes it Zhou's third full stint in the series. While he finished P7 in his debut season (2019), 2020 witnessed Zhou see off the season in P6. Hence, 2021 was certainly a crucial season for Zhou amidst his pursuit of a Formula 1 seat. As of round 6 in Sochi, Zhou secured a total of 142 points and is on course to securing P2 in the championship.

Guanyu Zhou: 2021 Net Worth

According to multiple reports, Zhou's net worth is likely to be anywhere around $1 to $5 million, considering he has been earning a decent sum of money over the past 3 years by competing in Formula 2. However, the numbers will substantially rise in the coming years amidst his arrival to Formula 1.

Meanwhile, his father is rumored to be quite wealthy and may have played a hefty role in buying Zhou the Alfa Romeo F1 seat. Hence, Zhou, like Lance Stroll and Nicholas Latifi, will march into the series as a pay driver. Interestingly, there is almost nil information about Zhou's family background who prefers to remain in the shadow of their soon-to-be F1 driver son.
