    Thanks for that link. I’ve been getting more interested in F1, and I find it really fascinating with how many controls they pack onto the steering wheel.

    Hi Puraz,

    The steering wheel of an F1 is indeed a marvellous piece of technology. All at the fingertips of the driver to shave off that few precious seconds in a race.
