Steering wheel

Steering wheel
F1 steering wheels are constructed mainly from costly carbon fibre and also have silicon grips. McLaren Applied Technologies supplies the standardised ECU which the steering wheel is based around, which limits each to 20 buttons, nine rotary switches and six paddles. However, every button and switch function is customisable for each team’s needs. Despite its small size, the multitude of possible technological adjustments to the wheel make it extremely valuable. Cost: $50,000 (£35,000)
