Ferrari F10 Steering Wheel Simplified

by F1Fan on May 14, 2010

If you ever wondered what functions all those buttons and dials perform on a Formula One steering wheel the following video gives a great explanation of the 2010 Ferrari F10’s steering wheel and capability.

What really blew me away was the explanation given by Felipe Massa’s performance engineer that this season the number of controls on the wheel have been reduced and are much simpler as there are no longer any KER’s related controls.

No wonder Giancarlo Fisichella had such a difficult time adapting to his Ferrari last season when he transferred over from Force India.

It just boggles the mind that an F1 Driver has to adjust many of these controls during the race while traveling at speeds of over 200 mph. On a normal Grand Prix circuit with plenty of run off areas if you make a mistake it must be difficult enough but at Monaco with the armco barriers just inches away, it is truly incredible.

Just incredible.

Pretty insightful post. Never thought that it was this simple after all. I had spent a good deal of my time looking for someone to explain this subject clearly and you’re the only one that ever did that. Kudos to you! Keep it up
