With the Ferrari F1 Wheel Add-On, owners of Thrustmasters T500 RS steering wheel and pedal set can now enter the world of Formula 1 with the release of the latest F1 2011 video game.

The Ferrari F1 Wheel Add-On is a removable, life-size replica of the racing wheel that equips the Ferrari 150° Italia. Designed to attach to the base of the T500 RS steering wheel, it offers a unique racing experience.

The Thrustmaster Quick Release attachment system enables users to easily attach the wheel to the T500 RS base in a few seconds. This concept allows all RS Series wheel base owners to invest in the wheels alone to enjoy realism in all types of races.

Existing T500 RS owners will also need a firmware update (available from http://ts.thrustmaster.com) to operate the F1 Ferrari racing wheel on the T500 RS base.

The Ferrari F1 Wheel Add-On features a scratch-brushed reinforced metal facing. Additionally, the brushed metal F1 Push & Pull sequential shifters are attached to the wheel in true F1 style and feature rubber-textured grips. The extensive built-in equipment includes rotary knobs, switches and buttons, enabling each driver to make precision adjustments according to his own racing style and the conditions on the track.

The racing wheel offers two rotary encoder switches (allowing direct, on-the-track optimization of the car's settings), eight push-buttons (with a 6.5 N dual-detent pressure), three 4.5 N metal switches with three positions and an automatic centering feature, two 2.5 N 8-directional D-Pads and two up/down shifters. When it comes to system compatibility, two game modes are available: a PC and PS3-compatible normal mode (offering 13 action buttons and three D-Pads) as well as an advanced PC-compatible mode (offering 25 action buttons and one D-Pad).

The Ferrari F1 Wheel Add-On will be available in early October at the suggested retail price of $199.99.
