Zhou Guanyu (Alfa Romeo) wants to get back in the car after his horror accident after the start of the British Grand Prix next week in Austria.
“It was a serious accident and I’m glad I’m fine,” said the Chinese. He wants to get back on track as soon as possible and “do what I love: I’m fit and I’m looking forward to Austria next week.”
Zhou’s car was turned upside down in the crash, flew over the gravel, rotated in the air, crashed over a stack of tires and only came to a stop after it hit the safety fence. The Halo system probably saved the racer’s life.
“The marshals and the medical team at the track reacted fantastically quickly. I also have to thank the FIA and Formula 1 for all the work they have done and continue to do to improve the safety of our cars,” said Zhou: “The Halo saved me today and it shows that every step we take to improve our cars brings real, valuable results.”
