  • Anyone want to trade their yellow F1 wheel for a blue one? (this is a serious question haha)
  • Hello, I want to ask about some the New pedals will release on 2019 for F1 racing game ?that performance like current product's pedals V3 I think most people want. I'm a new user and ordered F1 2018 steering wheel limited version. I prepare to order the DD1 wheel base. Fanatec products makes me excited. Thank you
  • Fantastique il est superbe
  • Is there any chance of a voucher for the PS4 version if its preordered in the next 24-48 hours?  I know the people waiting for the PS4 version haven't had money on the line, but we've been waiting the same amount and many of us would have preordered during the same time as those waiting for the DD1 and DD2, but we weren't given the opportunity to.  Would be really cool if the first day or two of PS4 preorders was treated the same.  
    Difference is that you did not place an order and make a pre-payment yet. ;)
    Does that mean that if we now order the PS4 podium also receive a discount of 349 € on the total?
  • One important thing is: does it work on the next generation? In 1919/2020 comes the ps5 and i dont want to spend so many € for a wheel that i cant use only for a genaration that is near the end.

    Of course not, why would it? Nice try.

    I still have a Thrustmaster t500 that is ps3, and that still works on ps4 once the game launches, I wouldn't worry. Typically Sony leaves the decision of wheel compatibility squarely in the hands of the developers. And software developers will want to support your wheel!

    If and when the time arrives it will be a question to Sony anyway. There is no way that Fanatec can answer this question. It is not in their hands as to what a product (that does not exist yet) will be compatible with in the future.

    There should be no technical reason however, why this wouldn't work with future console releases. 
  • Unless Fanatec and Sony fall out again....
    Thats the point. BTW, what was the price of the t500? I dont think it was near of the new DD PS4.

    Good point, that's why I edited that bit out lol. I guess you are looking at a 3x higher investment. It is certainly a valid question, don't get me wrong, I just don't see how Fanatec can answer it at the moment. Everything seems rosy between Sony and Fanatec at the moment...

    This brings up another point however. Is 1500 euros just too high as a price segment for the console market? Just food for thought. Im sure preorder numbers will still be high though.

    I think this might be the 2019 F1 wheel


    No automatic alt text available.


    It is similar to the F1 black and Carbon in shape, but with the similar buttons and dials to the newer rims.
    And it has an Xbox one Button................................................

    I don't understand the Productplacement from Fanatec. I would wait until i am sure that the next generation will be supported. If not, so it comes for the PS5 and it has the full lifecycle.

    And i know that no-one can answer this question (except Sony)
    I hope for everyone who preorder, it comes with full support for then next generation (PS and Xbox)!

    because the PS4 user will wait at least as long as the PC or XBOX user. Was not a trial but a normal question
  • Hello Thomas

    The new wheel looks sensational.

    With the emphasis on F1 so strong with Fanatec now, will you release your pedals with just a brake pedal and throttle pedal, as an option....
    And when will we start getting infomation on the new Podium pedals....?

    Suppose you're right, the wait has been the same. I would have liked the ps4 version, but figured I would be mainly pc usage. If this had been avail to preorder earlier I would have gone for this one. 

    I guess they all should have been announced together, all delayed together, and all got free wheel. :)
  • Will the 2019 F1 wheel rim promised to the customers that pre-ordered DD1 and DD2 include the magnetic paddleshifters?

    Everytime I try to place a pre-order it causes HTTP ERROR 500 at payment stage
    api.secupay.ag/payment/otnkuhjvazsi3306834/failed?ERRORCODE=1001
    If it continues please contact webshop (at) fanatec (dot) com.
    I've paid via PayPal a moment ago. It looks like SecuPay doesn't work.
    Difference is that you did not place an order and make a pre-payment yet. ;)
    Done. B-) Order ID: #898013 of 07/12/2018. I hope this delay of pre-order start was not your fault.. but Sony or third parties :[email protected] Simultaneous pre-orders start for DD1/DD2/PRW could spared my nerves a lot  ;;)
    5 months left..  ~O)
  • Could someone offer some guidance. Have been wanting to upgrade my current setup since August, got my Vesaro rig coming and fanatec wise I am after BMW GT2 wheel, inverted V3 pedals, shifter and some other accessories. Since hearing the news of the PS4 podium I have wanted to Pre order it and after the special rim was released I thought maybe i would be able to pre order in December and it would then release at the same time as the limited edition F1 rim at the end of January next year. I held back from ordering the CSL Elite base on Black Friday based on my assumptions maybe working out, however with the unfortunate delay that won't be the case. I can't wait to upgrade my things so I was going to purchase the CSL Elite base to tide me over until the PS4 podium is shipped and then sell the CSL elite. I want to buy the whole lot today so was wondering how shipping would work? Will it get put under one shipment and all come in April? Or would i get everything that is available right away and the PS4 podium will be shipped on its own when it is available?
  • PS4 DD will also using DD2 motor ? I want make sure about that , thx
  • Is anybody willing to "sell" me their pre-order slot for the limited and already sold-out ClubSport Wheel F1 2018? I would like to get the Podium Racing Wheel F1 for PS4 but literally hate the blue color of the wheel it ships with. I'm happy to pay 50€/USD on top of the pre-order price. If anybody is up for it please send me a message (and please don't comment with a quote - as all quotes are appearing with the real names in Google Search).
  • PS4 DD will also using DD2 motor ? I want make sure about that , thx
    yes.
  • I pre-ordered the special edition formula 1 2018 gold version, available next january 15th.

    I also pre-ordered the Podium advanced shifters supposed to be released next april. Could it be possible to get these shifters earlier in a way to put them on my upcoming 2018 wheel next january ? Waiting next april is too long...

    Hello... Thomas/ Dominic I Pre Orderd on Day1... If i want to change My DD2 order to the PS4 DD wheel will that Affect/ Negate/ Stop Me from Receiving My Pre Order delay Compensation wheel???...Quesrion Will the PS4 DD wheel be compatible with Xbox1 if I use the Xbox1 universal Hub??? .... Also can you consider to just issue vouchers for those of us that may Not Need or want the New F1 Rim??? Great Looking Rim but as i mostly Race Gt3 class i find its a tad too small for My taste --> it seems to be the same size as the Formuka Black Rim I have... Great Rim But I dont use it much at all.

    1. I highly doubt that you can keep the free rim/voucher if you cancel your DD2 pre-order and switch to a PS4 pre-order but best way I think would be to contact the webshop directly.
    2. yes, its xbox compatible with an xbox compatible rim.

    haha :D
    Thats not possible because the Podium Paddle Shifters I think are still in development and absolutely not ready for shipping in january ^^ I bet if it would be ready, Fanatec would have put them in the webshop with a january release date to launch them together with the F1 2018 LE.

    Hi Iok,

    Thomas wrote that inside there is a DD1 motor:

    Mr Jackermeier what is differends between DD2 and DD PS4?
    The Racing wheel is basically the DD1 +
    • Blue Carbon fiber
    • CluSport Formula V2 steering wheel with P APM 
    • PS4 compatibility (saftey electronics)

    no. Thomas wrote the Podium Racing Wheel is basically a DD1. BUT the DD1 will come with the DD2 motor (but with different electronics).
    For now there is no DD1 motor and ALL DD variants will come with the big fat DD2 motor!

    ok i might be looked at as an idiot, but to me (casual gamer CSL P1 wheel xbox only and GT3 wheel) i see almost no difference to my GT3 wheel. Ok other buttons, better material most likely - i think i can pass :-)
  • Power supply is it 100-220v , same as fanatec product before?
  • Was für ein sexy Teil. Wow.
  • Ich frag mich aber trozdem wie lange es noch dauern wird bis fanatec Produkte für gt sport vollständig implementiert werden.

    That's a valid question! I want to see the beautiful OLED display working in GT Sport!
  • Guess Ive been banned from the Podium update blog as only posts blank messages. Probably deserve it for some of my comments. But felt very aggrieved and angry about the data leak saga. Mellowing now as not had any repercussions yet regarding it. 

    Anyway was only trying to message....Thank you for the voucher.
  • If we have already preordered the DD1 and have the voucher for the wheel, is it possible to exchange it for the PS4 podium package if I pay the extra for the podium paddle shifters? Thanks

    Thanks for the response but i will wait on word from a Fanatec Official.... I dont see how i should lose My Free Rim order because the Fact Remains that I have Paid and Fanatec Has Had $1,500 of My Cash since Day 1 Pre Orders opened... at No time will the Cash be refunded to Me just transfered to a Different product thats Exactly the same Price.

    @Thomas: It's nice to see so many new products for PC and PS4. But what about the Xbox one players? Can you please shine a little light on the above remark and your previous remarks that there will be an new rim for xbox one in 2019! Details please.

    And why wasn't it possible to produce the F1 wheel like the McLaren RIm. Because that one is compattible with PC, PS4 and Xbox one! That would have been the BF deal of the century!!

    It’s not in my order history as they messed up the order and they sent me a separate invoice. I’ve contacted via email but have had no response about a number of questions.

    Hi , Dom :) I have read this on the Podium PS4 product page .

    (Firmware can be updated with new features ).
    (Motor driver firmware can also be updated.).

    On the page of dd1 and dd2
    ( Motor driver firmware can also be updated. ) is not present

    Can I ask if the motor firmware is upgradable even on dd1 and dd2 abses ?

    this new features
    ( Introducing new FFB tuning features like speed sensitive dampening )
    is available even on ps4 DD or only for dd1, dd2 ?.

    Thank you.

    as said you should better contact the webshop directly. They most probably wont answer such questions in public but I still highly doubt that you would keep the free rim/voucher when you switch to the PS4 base as this would be unfair to all other customers which patiently waited for the PS4 Base in the first place. That it would cost the same is in my opinion irrelevant as this free rim is a compensation for the 4 1/2 month delay of already paid DD1 and DD2 pre-orders and the PS4 base is not affected by this delay in the first place as it has the April shipping date since pre-order day 1 now.

    ^^^ You still Missed the point... My $1,500 is still with Fanatec as a DD2 pre order payment Since Day 1 So even if i switch from DD2 to the PS4 DD wheel Fanatec still has and have had the $1,500 pre order payment from day 1...So thanks I have Emailed them so No further comment Needed on the matter i will await answers from a Fanatec Official... Everything else is Guessing and Speculation.
  • Does anyone know if a tablemount-system will be available for the podium? Or do you have to rely on self-construction with aluminum profiles?

    Any type of Clamp on Table Mount with Any DD wheel is Not Going to work...The Motors are just too powerful... You can Make 1 from wood but it has to be at least 3/4ths inch thick...you will Need to drill and Mount using the Botton Mounting Holes or Drill to Match any Mounting Bracket that Might be available for the wheel... Metal would be best option but a well Made Wood DIY Kit would work also... Just Make Sure its Sturdy with Minimum to No Flex ---> Screws and Bolts, Wood Screws will work also but May work themselves lose over time due to the Weight and Power of a DD motor.

    Table clamp v2 is more than enough . It’s a wheel base not a Boeing 747 Yes 25nm peak but the table clamp is sufficent.
