Zhou and Lundgaard set for FIA Formula 2 start in Austria

29.06.2020: Renault Sport Academy duo Guanyu Zhou and Christian Lundgaard are back in action this weekend as the FIA Formula 2 Championship gets underway in Austria, supporting the Formula 1 Grand Prix.

Renault Sport Academy duo Guanyu Zhou and Christian Lundgaard are back in action this weekend as the FIA Formula 2 Championship gets underway in Austria, supporting the Formula 1 Grand Prix.

Zhou has set his sights on the summit of the championship, as he looks to build on a solid maiden campaign in the series last year, which saw the Chinese driver claim seventh spot and Top Rookie in the standings.

Christian will make his second Formula 2 start as he embarks on a full, debut season in the championship. After finishing sixth in last year’s inaugural Formula 3 series, Christian has joined ART Grand Prix for 2020 after enjoying a taster outing in Abu Dhabi for Trident Motorsport last November.

Guanyu Zhou: “Finally we’re back in action and I’m super excited for the first race of the season. It’s been a long period of waiting but I’m more than ready to jump back into my race office. I like the track in Austria, but it has been an unlucky place for me in the past.

We had the potential for a race win last year but my gearbox failed. Hopefully we can have a good one this year and be up near the front. It’s going to be a very busy but exciting few weeks coming up.”

Christian Lundgaard: “I
’m very excited to finally get back out on the track after seven long months. It will be a tough weekend with only 45 minutes of practice before qualifying, so I’ve got to get the most out from it. It’s been a long break and I’ve put in lots of hard work to make the difference.

I’ve been focusing hard on points I’ve previously found more difficult. I’m standing as a better driver than before the break from racing and I’m aiming to show that on track.”
