I just set-up, installed, and tried playing F1 2018 my Fanatec CSL Elite wheel and pedals, but within a minute my wheel disconnects and turns all the way to one side. Windows makes the sound effect of plugging in a USB device and the game-screen flashes a "controller disconnected" message. If I don't hold the wheel on the center, the FFB just keeps rotating against the rotation limit. The wheel stays like this until I turn off the entire wheel-base (persists even after I close the game). I have only run in Time Trials, but this problem has occurred at every map that I have loaded. If I turn off my wheel-base, it goes back to normal, but only temporarily as it locks up shortly after.
I have re-installed and re-flashed the drivers for my wheel. I have verified the integrity of F1 2018 within Steam. My wheel works perfectly fine in Project Cars 2 and Assetto Corsa, so it has to be something within F1 2018 that's triggering it.
