Mercedes F1 Explains A 2019 Formula 1 Steering Wheel

Published

on


The good old days of racing where drivers did not have much control of their vehicle but the gas, brake, clutch and steering inputs through turning the steering wheel, today drivers are in control of the most complex piece of machinery on this planet. The formula 1 steering wheel comes with an instruction booklet for drivers that is as thick as an encyclopedia. Every year switches and dials change that control new functions on their race car and they better know the ins and outs of this control when their race engineer needs them to make a change on the fly during practice, qualifying or the race itself.

Below is a video brought to us by Mercedes F1 that explains all of the buttons, switches, screens and dials that are incorporated into a 2019 Formula 1 steering wheel.
