Valtteri Bottas believes that the new Formula 1 challengers will not differ very much from the 2021 cars in terms of driving.

Formula 1 is entering a new era with the introduction of new technical regulations next year. The new cars will look different from the ones that we used to see.

Some drivers have already tried out the new car on the simulator, stating that they need a new approach to it. However, Bottas does not agree with that.

“At least at that point, it felt like the cars are a bit off in terms of downforce,” he said.

“But the overall feeling, at least in the sim, wasn’t that dissimilar in either of the simulators. We can’t simulate following other cars and stuff like that, but it’s not crazy different. Maybe still a bit less downforce but, like I said, that will change.”
