F1 2017 can use controller like steering wheel like gran turismo?

I am looking for the best set up. With gran turismo you can use the controller like a steering wheel,  when you move to the left it turnster left and right to right, but with f1 it looks like you can't and need to use buttons and that is a shame. Anyone an idea?

    If you are saying can I play with a controller yes you can either the standard PS4 or XB1 controller and either will work on PC.

    Of course you can use a wheel. Did you really think only Gran Turismo is that sophisticated?

    Read the question carefully, I have the same query..... “Can you use the PS4 controller like an actual steering wheel, so that when you turn the controller to the left, the car turns left... etc. ie it uses the controller’s inertia/gravity ability  and you are not using the sticks.
    I have GranTurismo too. It seems it could be more sophisticated if F1 2017 has not got this ability.

    Just by the way how does it even work while driving? I have had really bad experiences with the Switch's and Wii's motion controls in racing games. Also the answer is probably no, except if someone has made a third party software for in on PC.

    No, F1 2017 does not support tilt-to-steer motion control as Gran Turismo.
