Although there were very few passes in last weekend's season opener in Melbourne, Albert Park has historically been a circuit where overtaking has proven difficult in F1.
That prompted Renault's Nico Hulkenberg to say passing was "almost impossible" given the dirty air, while FIA president Jean Todt suggested it was a price worth paying for the quicker cars.
Bottas thinks what happened in Australia will not be repeated at all tracks, and he especially thinks that the next race in China, with its long straight, will be a totally different story.
Asked by Autosport whether he felt overtaking being harder in Australia was down to the track or rules, Bottas said: "I think in general it will be a little more difficult, but it'll depend on tracks.
The circuits with really long straights will be very good racing because also the slipstreaming has a bigger effect now, and DRS does too with these rear wings.
"So some places we will see good racing and some places like Barcelona it will be very difficult to overtake.
"Let's wait a few more races and see how the racing goes, but obviously [Australia] was more tricky than last year."
While few were expecting anything other than more difficult overtaking thanks to the higher-downforce cars, Bottas does think it is a pity that it has happened.
"I think when you're in the same car and with similar-ish tyres, it's extremely difficult at a track like this," he said of Albert Park.
