Evolution of the Steering Wheel

By Viva F1 | 21 Jun 2013 | One Comment | 44,897 views

For a long time, the steering wheel was a humble piece of equipment which did exactly what it says on the tin – it’s a wheel and it controls the steering. However, as the video below from Sauber shows, in the last twenty years it has evolved into a €30,000, multifunctional interface controlling far more than simply the direction the car points.

Sauber have also produced an infographic explaining all the functions of the current incarnation of their steering wheel, downloadable in pdf format from here.
