BBC Sport - Formula 1: Valtteri Bottas explains how an F1 car starts

How does a Formula 1 car start?

Williams driver Valtteri Bottas explains to BBC Sport's Allan McNish how the settings on a Formula 1 steering wheel work.

Bottas reveals it is the engineers who suggest the perfect clutch setting to pull away from the start, with the drivers adjusting accordingly.

Next season the rules are changing and no settings are able to change once the cars leave the garages before the formation lap.
