Zhou Guanyu has revealed that Silverstone is still his favourite Formula 1 circuit despite his horrific crash during the 2022 world championship, after he promised to push himself to the “maximum” the next time he races around the track.
In one of the sport’s scariest moments, Zhou saw his Alfa Romeo flip over and hurtle through the gravel before flying over the tyre barriers at the start of the British Grand Prix last year.
The Chinese F1 star was then trapped between spectators and the catch fencing, eventually being recovered from the car and remarkably walking away without any serious injuries.
