    Pretty interesting. Of course you realize when similar full control steering wheel technology is implemented in the future for automobile manufacturing en masse, there's still going to be some little old lady going down the highway with her turn signal flashing continuously...

    I thought plus and minus were for the gears ??? I have no idea, really, it's just a guess.

    I remember hearing something about a hand clutch, any idea which one it is ?

    Also, what is "multi-down" ? Is it to rapidly downshift the car ?

    Wow.... All I can say is that there's more buttons there than any video game system I've played. I bet he's good at Mario Kar :lol:

    Anyways on a serious note, that looks VERY complicated but I suppose it's something you learn in time. I know they have little labels but I wish I knew what half of them did (further explained).

    Sorry, I haven't seen those up close. Are they the things poking out from behind the wheel, on the left located behind the "F" (fuel hatch) button, and on the right, behind that black button labelled "Start prep" ? I labelled them here, are these the correct controls ?

    Sorry for the noob query.

    I thought brake bias was underneath the steering wheel (manual adjustment is required I think)?

    this wheel must be from an older car... like the brake bias, and i also thought that there was no traction control on F1'a any more... at least the got rid of it in 94' but thats all i really know...
