Guanyu Zhou is one of two new members of the Renault Sport Academy for 2019.
Nineteen-year-old Guanyu hails from Shanghai, China, and has a strong record of single-seater racing in Europe since 2015 when he finished runner-up in the Italian F4 Championship.
Guanyu began karting as an eight-year-old and moved to London to study in 2012 while also continuing his racing career. By 2013, he had won the European Junior Rotax and ABKC S1 Rotax Junior Series.
After finishing runner-up in Italian F4 in his first year of single-seaters, Guanyu switched to the FIA Formula 3 European Championship in 2016, finishing 13th. He continued in the series in 2017, ending the year eighth before claiming eighth again in 2018.
