In all results lists, Zhou Guanyu is listed as "Z. Guanyu". This is wrong, he should be listed as "Zhou G.". Please fix.

I checked official FIA results from Brasil and it is either G. Zhou or ZHOU Guanyu so I think correct

ZHOU Guanyu is correct, family name first per Chinese name order (but capitalising is wrong, that is French). G. Zhou is less correct, since it is wrong order, but still it is abbrevating the first name and not the family name. Z. Guanyu is even less correct since it abbrevates the family name but writes the first name in full. 

 

And the problem is still there, it is obvious that Autosport doesn't even read their own forum. Sad.

Please bear in mind that the forum is operated independently of the website. Please don’t expect instant reactions to minor quibbles about the main Autosport website here.

It’s quite obvious that the results database abbreviates driver names automatically for these tables. It’s unlikely to be a high priority for Autosport/Motorsport (I suspect they use the same database) to change it just because it offends you that it abbreviates the wrong part of his name, even though they’ve taken the trouble to put his name in the correct order for a Chinese person.

This part of the forum is called "Website feedback" and therefore I would expect the administrators of the website to follow this particular section of the forum and pick up on feedback given.
