The First Ever Direct Drive System for PS4

Take your PS4 racing experience to the ultimate level with Fanatec Direct Drive technology. Our partnership with Sony Interactive Entertainment Europe means that the Podium Racing Wheel F1‚© works seamlessly with all PS4 and PS4 Pro Systems. As well as PC. Switch out the wheel for an Xbox compatible version and it will work with Xbox too!

Officially licensed by Formula 1


The Podium Racing Wheel F1‚© combines breakthrough technology with years of simulation hardware experience. Fanatec‚© Direct Drive has no equal. It is quite simply the most realistic force feedback system ever on a console.


This racing wheel defines the new standard for esports competition on the PlayStation. It has matched compatibility with the CSL Elite Racing Wheel for PS4 and therefore well supported by all important racing games. Compatibility is tested and certified. Just plug it in and race.
Officially licensed for PlayStation 4

Direct Drive Without The Hassle

Its all in the details. Our thousands of design hours means that you can just drive and enjoy.
Wireless Data and Power


The endless rotation of our direct drive motor inspired the development of a unique solution to transfer data and power to the wheel inputs and displays wirelessly. This means no USB cables are flying around which can easily get damaged and make it difficult to let the wheel spin in a drift.


Podium Wheel Bases use an outrunner-type motor engineered from the ground up specifically for sim racing. Instead of using a random industrial motor, our custom motors are tailored without compromise for sim racing and exclusive to Fanatec.
Fully Certified, Plug and Play

Exclusive ClubSport Steering Wheel F1‚© PS4 included

The F1‚©-style with a compact 27cm diameter steering wheel features a vast array of features and controls, including the preinstalled Podium Advanced Paddle Module.
Loaded with Fanatec Innovation


11 buttons, 12-way multi-position switches, thumb encoders, rocker switches; weve packed a huge number of controls into this compact wheel, ergonomically positioned for quick access. RevLEDs with nine multi-color LEDs can show motor RPM and optimal shifting point, and the two flag LED bars (FlagLEDs) with three multi-color LEDs can indicate tire slip, fuel level, or incoming radio.


The Podium Advanced Paddle Module provides two magnetic shifters that generate a solid, positive feel to every shift and two additional magnetic paddles for functions like DRS. Dual analogue clutch paddles allow F1‚©-style launch control by pre-defining the clutch bite point. Automotive grade quality, with real carbon fibre paddle plates and an aluminium cage.
