Fanatec and Formula 1® renew licensing partnership

Dominic BrennanDominic Brennan Member, Administrator

Fanatec is pleased to announce that it is continuing as an Official Licensee of Formula 1® and Official Provider of Formula 1® Sim Racing with a new multi-year agreement. 

As Official Provider of Formula 1® Sim Racing, Fanatec supplies teams and drivers with a full racing set up including a steering wheel, pedals, direct drive wheel base, and cockpit. Round three of the 2024 F1® Sim Racing Championship will take place on May 7. 

We have recently introduced a new Officially Licensed Formula 1® package:

ClubSport Racing Wheel F1®.

This combines a new F1® Steering Wheel with unique blue forged carbon finish together with the acclaimed 15Nm ClubSport DD+ Wheel Base. Officially licensed by PlayStation for PS5® and PS4™ consoles, this product was developed under the official licensing and approval of Sony Interactive Entertainment.

The iconic 270 mm ClubSport Formula wheel features a stunning blue forged carbon finish with perforated leather grips, magnetic paddle shifters, OLED display, and RGB LEDs. The Direct Drive Wheel Base uses a custom 15 Nm servo motor designed in Germany specifically for sim racing, achieving best-in-class thermal and slew rate performance. The combination of Steering Wheel and Wheel Base is completed with the included QR2 quick release system, which ensures a precision fit and flawless transfer of force feedback from the motor to the driver’s hands.

The finest detail is achieved with FullForce, Fanatec’s new force feedback protocol tailored specifically and exclusively for Fanatec Direct Drive.

 The ClubSport Racing Wheel F1® is available now at!

“Throughout the last six years, our partnership with Fanatec has gone from strength-to-strength providing our worldwide gaming audience with realistic F1 products that brings the thrill of racing into their homes and lets them compete through onsite activations at our Grands Prix.”

  • Nice 👍

  • Very nice, now please, develop new steering wheels, maybe 290/300mm

  • Wouldn't it be better to spend more on quality control and customer service than on marketing?

  • Fiddling, while Rome burns...

  • Would be good news, if it wasnt for the all bad news ref people not getting there orders. Surely this would be more important, and perhaps trying to repair the companys terrible reputation (Trustpilot 1.7 BAD)

  • I would like to have one, but it is not sold in Japan.
    I would like to know when I can buy it in Japan.

    Wow... Does it mean driver release version will be released before may 7th? Or fanatec decided to run beta version during races. Anyway should be exciting

    Or we have to watch it when drivers lose their steering wheels and ffb :)) and that's during official f1 races :)

    That's brave from Fanatec and even more brave from F1 (unless they have no clue / don't care)

  • Well, this is nice.

    But where is my order ?

  • “ The ClubSport Racing Wheel F1® is available now at!”

    Well not in Japan though.

  • Habe grade denn Preis gesehen. Schöner, Bündel Preis.

    Aber es gibt das doch auch mit mein Lieblings material, und von allen ohne Handschuhe empfohlenen material.

    Ach so doch nicht.

    Was natürlich: Glattleder eng-smooth leather

    Soll beste material sein, auch Handschuhe Fahrer annehmbar.

    Das Bündel macht die Lenkrade Basis Preiswerter.

    Deswegen ein weiterer Kracher für mich.

    Fanatec haut ein ding nach dem anderen raus, da sind die vielen neue Produkte von Fanatec

    Die damals angekündigt würden.

    Das ist nicht neu aber bessere, neuer Preis.

    PS: Schön FANATEC.

    Jetzt könnte auch mal wieder ein Podiums Kracher kommen.
