How much force is needed to steer a Formula 1 car?

How much force is needed to steer a modern Formula 1 car, compared to a regular car on a track like Spa?

Formula 1 cars nowadays have power steering, the amount force is not tightly regulated so the teams can change this. You don't need as much force to steer as in GP2 or F3000 in their times, because the power steering helps. The steering of a Formula 1 car still requires more force than a regular road going car, but it's no longer extremely hard.
