As a new pair of eyes to Formula One, Sebastien Buemi predicts a "very difficult" leap for the sport's three new entrants.

US F1, a start-up operation, as well as lower-formula outfits Campos and Manor, have all been granted spots on the 2010 entry list.

20-year-old Buemi is the only rookie driver in F1 this year, having stepped up from the GP2 support series to one of the smallest Grand Prix outfits Toro Rosso.

But the Swiss believes the step for a team is even more daunting.

"For the new teams it will be very difficult, because the leap into Formula One is so big," he told Germany's Auto Motor und Sport. "It's a different world.

"If it was simple, there would already be more teams," Buemi added.
