After the news of the Alfa Romeo F1 steering wheel change, the fans were unleashed. And even non-Italian fans write: “Giovinazzi deserved the place more than you”
The certainty that Antonio Giovinazzi will no longer be an Alfa Romeo F1 driver – but will land in Formula E with the Dragon – has made the social media crowd unleash against his successor, Guanyu Zhou, the driver who in 2022 will become the first Chinese al away from a World GP.
