Zhou is having a solid debut in Formula 1. The Chinese driver was brought to F1 as the third-placed finisher in Formula 2. The Chinese driver received a lot of criticism at first because many said he would be there mainly because of his big bag of money, but Zhou also showed in 2022 that he can indeed drive well.

In his first Grand Prix, he finished 10th, scoring China's first Formula 1 point. Zhou would score five more points later in the season and is rarely found at fault. Still, the Chinese will have to pace himself a lot faster in 2023, because in 2022 the difference with teammate Valtteri Bottas was a bit too big for a while.
