Tom's Hardware:

Each team in the F1 uses a different, custom-developed steering wheel. The similarities usually end with the fact that they all are detachable, built out of carbon fiber and integrate a small, PDA-like PC. For example, Ferrari uses one of the most complex devices, integrating 26 different buttons and switches plus a display. Sauber's steering wheel shows "just" 18 buttons and switches plus a display. The teams declined to comment on the exact cost of such a steering wheel, but a Sauber spokesperson told us that "you could buy a small Mercedes for it."

I couldn't help but be mighty impressed by the advanced level of technology used in F1 cars. There is also an AMD vs. Intel angle. Plus, Michael Schumacher makes an appearance. Read the article from the start.
