Who Goes Where 2022

NEWS STORY
23/09/2021

And then there was one...

With Haas retaining Mick Schumacher and Nikita Mazepin for 2022, the only remaining seat is that at Alfa Romeo alongside Valtteri Bottas

The Swiss/Italian team is being linked with Chinese racer, Guanyu Zhou, Alfa Romeo, and indeed F1 aware of the (financial) impact the recruitment of a Chinese driver would have.

Fellow F2 racers, Australia's Oscar Piastri, who currently leads the championship, and Russia's Robert Shwartzman, currently third, have both been linked with the seat, as has Callum Ilott, but all are playing down their chances.

While current incumbent, Antonio Giovinazzi prefers not to pay any attention to the speculation everything points to the Italian being out of F1 season end.

"If the decision was just about what the team needs in a driver then Haas could do with some experience for new car development (provided they have the funds to actually develop a car), so perhaps Giovinazzi would be swapped for Schumacher?
Whatever happens it is looking likely that this year's F2 champion will need to go to another series or cool his heals as a "reserve" driver."
