How is his name pronounced, Kye?  Guanyu Zhou, or Zhou Guanyu?  I have seen it both ways in the media.

I haven't been watching F2 (no time) so I have no idea. 

I still think Ho Pin Tung was a cooler name. ;D

Risky move for Zhou. I certainly wouldn't want to be going up against a reinvigorated Bottas in an Alfa.

Likely to be down the back, and getting hosed by his team mate. Good luck to him!
