Charles Leclerc has revealed that he has driven a simulation of Ferrari's 2022 Formula 1 car which he has confirmed is very different to this year's machine.
F1 will introduce a new set of technical regulations in a bid to create more wheel to wheel action and for the cars to follow more closely.
"We've got the chance to have a very good simulator in Ferrari, and we can we can try different things on that simulator," Leclerc told RacingNews365.com and other select members of the press.
"There the driver input is very important. It's very early days for us to to actually say something.
"The only thing we can do is to try and work in the best way possible with with Carlos to try and explain what are the weaknesses on this year's car.
"Trying to understand why we had those weaknesses and to try to not reproduce those mistakes for next year's car even though the project is completely different.
"So I will say on the simulator, we've got quite a big input and we can help a lot."
Leclerc reiterated that it's still very early days and it's anyone's guess as to what the pecking order will look like next year, with some teams already working on their cars for six months.
"It [the 2022 car] feels very different," said Leclerc. "I think it's a question mark for everyone, whether we are developing well or not. It's such a different project.
"It's very, very early days, so nobody knows where we are positioning ourselves compared to the others. But, we are working on it."
