  • Still no reply from support regarding the shipping costs being doubled when you add on the F1 2019 game code. Anyone on here heard anything yet? I wonder how many other customers have paid shipping for a code and not realised....?
    Of course this is not intentional, and has been corrected. If anyone has inadvertently paid extra shipping costs for a game code, please contact our sales team via the email webshop (at) fanatec (dot) com. The team is currently very busy due to multiple product launches, but they will get back to you.
    I also just noticed this happened to me as well. Only after I came across this shipping costs overview: https://www.fanatec.com/documents/UPS-Rates.pdf

    Shipping costs were applied for a multiple product order rather than a single one. I sent a message asking for a refund of the excess shipping costs via the website.

    Just received the repayment of the excess shipping costs, so that's great. But, as it appears to be a system error, and I needed to request this myself (Fanatec didn't tell me about it and it has been 1 month after I placed the order), some other consumers might have paid too much but don't know about it. There is a single shipping cost item, you need to check the PDF above to know what you should pay.

    Would be better customer service if Fanatec checked all the orders made for this, because they know it's a system error, and then make the refunds rather than wait for customers to flag it themselves. Even though it's a small amount, that's more out of principle...
  • I received my steering wheel today. High level product, congratulations. However, when I tried to open the fanatec driver, a message asking for update popup and after that, my base freezes. I'm using a dd1 base. But I can play with it.

    Hope somebody can help with you not being able to do the update to it.

    Yes. Was shipped last week and I received it yesterday.

  • Received mine today May 23rd.  No problems with flash. 

    I did notice with all the same settings much more force with the F1 than the Mclaren (with quick release hub).  Wonder if there is some kind of force reduction because the Mclaren is a CSL wheel?

    I had a Thrustmaster Ferrari F1 and those thumb encoders spun on their own.  So far I feel that the Fanatec F1 thumb encoders have a distinct feedback to movement even with bicycle gloves on.

    Interesting re the increased force feedback. What base are you using? Mine should arrive today, can’t try it yet as my csl elite ps4 base is with fanatec for repairs.

    The McLaren is using Full Torque when used with a ClubSport QR - with the plastic QR it is limited in Torque to CSW v2.5 output on a DD, yes - but I think you feel more force because the Formula Wheel is 3cm smaller in diameter. 3cm does not sound much but it actually is a HUGE difference.

    Of course they were not included because they were delayed to mid July and you was informed by this delay by mail a few weeks ago if your ordered them before they were delayed and otherwise the shipping date for the shifters was already set to July when you ordered them already so you shouldn't be surprised....

    When I ordered the APM the availability date was mid June. And until now I never got a mail that says something else ;)

    Ah yes my bad, first batch is expected to be released 18.06 ;)

    Available to order, yes but definitely not available like "in Stock". They were never in Stock actually.

    That's no true,
    I've got no E-Mail and I ordered on 07/05/2019 and the Estimated shipping date is 28/06/2019

    As I said, it was my bad. Delay was from 30.04 to 18.06, not July. But still they were never available in Stock for now so there shouldn't be any surprise that the Podium shifters were not included with the Wheel. Your date 28.06 is for the F1 game.
  • Sorry Maurice,
    the shipping date is for the paddle moduland not for the F1 game.
    I ordered only the advanced Paddle Modul.
    best regards

  • Received the F1 2019 wheel today. In real it looks way better then on pictures. To be honest I was a bit afraid that the chrome parts would look 'toyish' but that's not the case at all. Again a top product which looks, feels even smells quality. Thanks!!
  • Received the new F1 2019 wheel yesterday. It looks fantastic.
    Thank you!
    So I need the Advance Paddle Modul.

    regards

    I'm a bit surprised, because Fanatec points out in the order history, that if one or more items should not be in stock, that then the entire order after receipt of the pre-ordered items in the warehouse will be shipped.
  • Hello,
    I have a question. Do I have to install driver V334 for the steering wheel F1 2019 or can I use the driver V330?

    Hi Guido, generally speaking you should use the driver package with the highest number, as this is the most recent. Our driver package always contains all firmwares, so this includes the firmware for the F1 2019 wheel.
  • Received mine on 28th. Driver 335 and update to steering wheel was no issue. Some movement and noise with the handles but otherwise good quality. LED's and OLED worked fine in Forza 7.
  • I have the csl elite PS4 and using driver 330. Do i need driver 334 to use the wheel? Because on the csl elite page the latest driver is 228 and on the wheel Page it is 334. Grtz Jeroen

    Yes, you need the driver 334. I installed it vesterday and i*ve no problems.

    My pre-order for the wheel + shifter upgrade is now showing as 
    Estimated shipping date: 28/06/2019  (Ordered: 29/04/2019)

    No idea why another month of waiting.  The paddles show availability 2019-07-31 so its not those holding it up, I was expecting those to come later.

    The wheel on the store page still shows as pre-order, availability yesterday?
    Can't get through to anybody to enquire about it either, was expecting it around now.. not in another month  :/


  • Same for me Steven Wright. I pre ordered the wheel, a wheel base and pedals last Friday and (both the wheel base and pedals were in stock with the new F1 2019 shown as pre order available 04/06/2019) but still, nothing has been shipped yet and nothing processed.  The only way I can seem to get in touch with Fanatec is via email or a query via the order itself and so far it has taken them 6 days to respond to anything so I am completely in the dark about what's going on with my order and the queries I had.
  • Just got some info that the shipment had been delayed a few days due to something relating to customs.
    So, hopefully in the next couple of days we should expect some info / dispatch.
  • Just got mine but my OLED isnt turning on. Did all the firmware udates and everything.
    No tuning menu coming on.
  • Does anyone know the degree of compatibility of the formula v2 rim on the ps4? Do the rev lights and speed indicator work when playing on the ps4? I need to know because I’m want to buy the rim.

    It is up to game developers to support these features, so some games behave differently to others. The PS4 can communicate the RevLED and wheel display signals, and many PS4 games support them. These features are not unique to the Formula V2 (the first-generation Formula wheels also have rev lights and a display) so they are commonly supported. Features that have been more recently introduced (such as the multi-position switches) are beginning to be supported on some PC sims, but it will take time before they are commonly supported on console games.

    Got my rim, love the leather grips, the whole reason I chose this one, but I have to say, not that impressed with the flex in the grips, which I assume is due to the cutout at the bottom, alongside the plastic feel.  They feel like a little too much pressure could almost snap them off / break it. 
    The F1 carbon was a lot more rigid by comparison.

  • When will the final batch of these rims be shipped? In my order the estimation for the shipping date ist June 28th. Since it is a few days later now, are there any news on the shipping date?

    Hi Sascha, I'm told your wheel shipped today. I hope you enjoy it!

    I have to say my impressions of the grips are very similar. Especialy under high torque cracking noise happens from time to time. Overall I am very happy with the F1 2019 rim, but the grips could be more solid.
