Formula 1 Steering Wheels Got Lots of Buttons

If you think that today's cars have too many cruise control and media buttons on their steering wheels, take a look at what Formula 1 race car drivers have to deal with:

These steering wheels are loaded to the gills with dials, switches, buttons, screens, toggles and more to confuse, baffle and distract those of us who haven't driven anything more complicated than an Isuzu Impulse.

I am an F1 addict. Have been for 20 years. Back when I started, it was just a regular steering wheel. Given everything a driver has to do today, it's amazing. Old days it was change gear and steer. Now they're practically fighter pilots.

In fact they spend so much time fiddling with buttons, is it any wonder the racing has gone to shit.
