Officially licensed by Formula 1™, the limited edition ClubSport Steering Wheel F1® 2021 features luminescent details to give your racing setup a unique appearance.

Glow in the dark.
Phosphorescent material is injected into the new rubber-coated button framings and thumb encoders, allowing them to glow green in a darkened room. Even the front Fanatec logo glows!

Premium materials.
The 5 mm-thick carbon fibre front plate features a cutaway F1-style grip design. Aluminium and carbon fibre paddle modules offer outstanding tactile feedback. And genuine Alcantara® provides the perfect grip for the compact 270 mm wheel diameter.

Podium Advanced Paddle Module in an exclusive finish.
Preinstalled with our most realistic paddle system, this wheel is equipped with everything you need to execute perfect starts and precision shifts.

Magnetic paddles and dual clutch.
The preinstalled Podium Advanced Paddle Module provides exceptionally crisp and rapid shifting. The dual analogue paddles offer four modes, including an advanced clutch bite point mode for making the perfect start. The colour combination of 3 mm-thick carbon fibre paddles and black anodised aluminium clutch paddles is exclusive to the limited edition F1® 2021 wheel.

Exchangeable Quick Release System.
The ClubSport Steering Wheel F1® 2021 comes preinstalled with the QR1 Wheel-Side (formerly named ClubSport Quick Release Adapter), an automotive-grade quick release system that allows the driver to exchange the wheel within seconds, even during gameplay. This can be upgraded to the next-generation QR2 system (coming soon).

Loaded with Fanatec® innovation.
Advanced multi-colour LED bars, OLED display, and more input options than ever. Master the complex systems of modern race cars, and find the edge over your competitors.

More than just eye-catching.
The wheel’s spectacular light show is also highly functional. RevLEDs with nine multi-colour LEDs represent motor RPM and optimal shifting point, and the two flag LED bars (FlagLEDs) with three multi-colour LEDs can indicate tyre slip, flag warnings, pit limiter, and more.

Multitasking at your fingertips.
11 buttons (with included customisable caps), 12-way multi-position switches, thumb encoders, toggle switches; the list goes on. Up to 67 functions of the game can be adjusted directly.
