The leader of the pack, Max Verstappen stated, “It’s interesting, it looks very different to what we are used to. The most important thing is that the racing is better. We have to be able to follow the car in front of us closer and if this is the way forward for that, I will be delighted.”
Meanwhile, Lewis Hamilton said, “It’s a serious challenge getting used to a new era and if this car makes following easier then it will be amazing for the fans and the sport.”
Whilst talking to Sky F1, retired British driver and former champion Jenson Button said that the car would definitely be harder to drive.
“Less downforce, it’s always more difficult to drive, those high-speed corners where now they are just bolted to the road, basically, I think we will see a few more moments. The cars these days are so on edge you can’t get a slide whereas this, when it’s less about the downforce and more about the tyre, I think you’ll be getting some drifts here and there which will be nice to see.”
