F1: Zhou chooses #24 as his number

Guanyu Zhou has selected the race number 24 to use when he makes his Formula 1 debut next year.

The only rookie driver on the grid for the 2022 F1 season will drive for Alfa Romeo alongside Valtteri Bottas.

Zhou is named as the driver of car number 24 in next year’s entry list issued by the FIA. He is the first driver to make that selection since permanent career numbers were introduced in 2014. The last driver to use the number was Timo Glock in 2012.
