Lewis Hamilton shows the evolution of the McLaren Steering Wheel

Yet another great video about Formula One Steering Wheels, from back in the day when Lewis Hamilton was still a loyal McLaren driver.

Follow along as Lewis shows the evolution of the McLaren Formula One Steering wheel, from way back in the day with a steering wheel from John Watson’s McLaren with no buttons on it at all, through the Ayrton Senna steering wheels with a couple of buttons, to Mika Hakkinen’s steering wheel where we saw more evolution through to the wheel on Lewis Hamiltons 2010 McLaren.

A fascinating history clearly showing not only the evolution of electronics and the associated buttons to adjust everything, but also the materials the steering wheels are made of and their coverings, from shiny hard leather to more grippy materials like suede.
