Steering Wheel Range


Recommended Posts

For those of you who use a steering wheel:  What range (°) have you configured?

I played F1 2019/2020 since 3.5 month with a range of 220°.

But what looks like is, that this is not good, because it allows me too fast changes the direction/angle of the steering wheel and this might be one reason for my steadily sliding (because overheading) tyres.

I am not 100% sure. I extended the range to 260° but it was not possible to drive for me with that change. So I reduced it to 240° and will keep that for a while.

Having a higher range looks like to calm down my adhoc driving moves. And it gives more sensitivity in corners. But I have to get used to. First 240°, maybe later again a bit more.

I like it a bit less than the guys here and go for 320/330.  Mainly 320 for the more nadgery tracks like Singapore and Monaco.

 

The whole steering lock debate in F1 gets a bit heated but it's really driver preference.  I know some guys who swear by 450, others who prefer 360, and some who go for 270.

With the topic of question in mind, I dug into some telemetry data of my driving. I only have data for a couple of tracks (Silverstone, Hungary, Spa), but at least on these tracks I don't use more than 60% of steering lock. I think on tracks such as those 360 degrees would work very well for me too, but the problems come with certain tracks like Monaco, Singapore and Tilke chicanes & hairpins in general.

I’m having an issue with F1 2021 where even set at 360°, a quarter turn of the wheel is full lock, which makes the car twitchy as **** to drive. Even set at 540° it looks and feels more like 240°.

You can see the ratio is wrong because the on screen wheel turns way more than your actual wheel.

Is this a bug with the game? I can’t play it because of this. I’ve been using 360° for years, so trying to drive at 180° is impossible and I spin constantly.

You should post about this in the 2021 game section, not here. I'm not aware of this being a widespread issue. If you post full details on the bug reporting section, following the template shown at the top of that section, then someone will be able to try to help.
