Max Verstappen thinks the new F1 cars will be difficult to drive in 2022 because they will generate much less grip. He compares it to the F1 cars of 2015, his debut year in F1.

Next year the rules in Formula 1 will be completely overhauled and in this case that also means that the cars will undergo a complete transformation. The cars will be slower, mainly due to the fact that they generate less grip and that should ensure that the spectacle on the track improves.

When asked whether he thinks the new cars will suit him, the young Dutchman cannot give a ready answer, but he thinks the amount of grip will be comparable to the car with which he made his debut in 2015.

“Of course I haven’t driven that new car yet, so I can’t answer that yet,” said Verstappen on his official website ‘’ “But we do know that the cars will be a lot slower. I understand that it will also have completely different handling characteristics. ”

“The bikes will stay the same, so with the same or more power and less grip, it won’t be easy. We will see. I think it goes back to the grip levels of 2014 or 2015, so that’s a big change. ”

Whether he will like the new car or not is not really an issue, according to Verstappen, the most important thing he thinks is that racing will improve.

“They will look very different. But most importantly, and we all hope that racing will improve. That’s what the fans will like, ”concludes Verstappen.
