Formula for Success - Steering wheels

Formula 1 experts including 13-time Grand Prix winner David Coulthard explains the importance behind the steering wheel in a Formula 1 car.

Former Jordan and Jaguar designer Gary Anderson describes the most expensive piece of equipment on-board as the "brain of the car", allowing drivers to change gear, make radio transmissions, operate Kers and DRS, adjust their brake balance and even have a drink while racing.
