Thrustmaster Reveal New Ferrari SF1000 Add-On Wheel

Gaming peripheral manufacturer Thrustmaster have revealed a new product for their growing portfolio of racing sim wheels - the replica Ferrari SF1000 Formula One wheel.

The second official Ferrari Grand Prix wheel from the brand, the SF1000 is a faithful replica of the wheel used by Sebastien Vettel and Charles Leclerc during the 2020 Formula One season, and adds to the already impressive collection of officially licenced Ferrari products available from the manufacturer.

To celebrate the launch of their new product, Thrustmaster have released just 1000 units for sale in Europe, with the main public launch of the peripheral set to be made available worldwide from August 26th.

The new wheel is set to retail for a very competitive 349,99 Euros, and of course is compatible with both console and PC platforms via the Thrustmaster T-Series bases family of devices.

Key points:
  • 4.3-inch IPS LCD display offers up to 69 necessary information via various displays depending on the game for optimal piloting comfort
  • 3mm thick carbon fiber breastplate (21 layers) combining rigidity and lightness for balanced force feedback
  • Up to 25 action buttons including 7 encoders for intuitive piloting and limitless adjustment possibilities
  • Native telemetry or wireless connectivity, iconic markings and official landmarks for unprecedented immersion and realism
  • 100% aluminum interchangeable magnetic paddle shifters and two programmable analog paddles
  • Steering wheel compatible with PC (Windows 10), PlayStation and Xbox (list of functions on Thrustmaster support)
  • Steering wheel compatible with Thrustmaster T-Series bases sold separately: TS-XW, T-GT, T300, TX and TS-PC
  • Steering wheel compatible with T-Chrono Paddles (sold separately)
  • Ferrari Official Licensed Replica Steering Wheel

I am curious if Fanatec will create their own rendition of an more extensive F1 wheel. I know Thrustmaster works closely with Ferrari and has for some time. Nonetheless it's a very cool addition for us Formula 1 fans. Hopefully it works well for those who get it.
 
Preordered mine from Scan as the Thrustmaster Website was sold out by the time I managed to get to the checkout, and bought the optional paddles.

Thrustmaster are really starting to up their game with more products at the higher end.

I was trying to buy for an hour, but their website seemed to be crashing a lot due to traffic.
Yeah, tried to use the Thrustmaster shop, but eventually ended up making the purchase via amazon.de (also there it was sold out pretty quickly).

Just looked at the documentation of the wheel and it is quite interesting, how the data on the dash on the wheel works. I have been thinking, that with my Telemetry Tool (https://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/telemetry-application-v10.34318/) I might be able to provide way for other games, which my tool supports, so that e.g. with ACC or AMS2 you could use the F12020 screens on this wheel. But can test that only, when the wheel arrives (ETA est May 10 to June 10, pretty wide target).

Cheers.

Thrustmaster finally trying to up their game like others have said. But sadly don't think we Thrustmaster users will see it for some time. They were gone before they were listed and the states wont see them until Late summer at best.
 
Looks great, I am planning to buy it to upgrade from my "old" Thrustmaster F1 Wheel once it becomes widely available. I just upgraded to T-LCM pedals so I don't even mind that it's already sold out, at least when I get my hands on it support will be more widespread. To give a bit of criticism, despite being a Ferrari fan, I would rather welcome a "generic" F1-style rim with all the dials and buttons, since in the sim I don't drive Ferraris only. However, going to another rim, like the Sparco that comes with the TS-XW or the Open Wheel rim, without the rotational dials, 2 D-Pads, rocker paddles would be... well, I would miss them for sure. Still, looking forward to this hopefully towards the end of this year, thank you Thrustmaster!
 
I think the wheel looks great and I have all Fanatec kit. On the flip side, I really don't trust too many vendors at this time. Especially when they are trying to bring out new products. With the shortages of components, shipping, materials, I just feel like they are pimping a bad situation. This so reminds me of video cards that were released last fall, Xbox, CPU's , bikes, and everything else you can't actually buy.

I,000 maybe considered limited edition, but in this current world that number is way past being just a "limited edition".
 
They were sold out within half a day. And ordering thorugh their website was a nightmare. I know. I tried to get one. :( Couldn't find it via any other website.

Just stumbled upon this (without intending to directly promote the store) if you are in the Netherlands you can still pre-order the wheel from the Alternate webshop, same price:
 
This is pretty baller. Not sure if its a huge step up from my old Ferrari F1 rim with a phone velcroed to it, but something tells me I have to own this. In contrast, the move from my Fanatec Forza CSR wheel to the Ferrari F1 wheel was monumental.

Buuuuut...since it'll be sold out for a while, maybe I'll look at an upgrade from T3PA-Pros to T-LCMs...

Yes, I have read through the docs also. I guess at the heart of it they have incorporated something similar to the SimDash App, except it has a Native Mode as well as a UDP Mode.

I have a Sim Racing Studio Wind Sim and Tacho, which work with F1, AMS2, PC2, AC, ACC, etc. so am hoping that the Screen will work in most of those games on PC in UDP Mode at least, (although I mostly play in VR) but will definitely make use of the rotary encoders and dials.

My ETA is supposed to be 28th April from Scan for the wheel, and the paddles are coming from Thrustmaster.
 
At first I was thinking I was going to be all over this when I first got wind of it a few months ago, however that's not true today. I'm now seriously thinking of moving away from the Thrustmaster eco-system as at some point I want to go DD, and Thrustmaster don't seem to have any interest in the DD market.

Therefore it wouldn't make any sense for me to spend €350 which could go towards a DD wheel. Especially when I already have the TM open wheel and Ferrari F1 wheel. Also the the display wouldn't be that useful for me because of VR, and for those sims lacking, or having unusable VR, my rig is setup to provide a realistic point of view which shows the dashboard anyway.

That said it looks like a great product nevertheless.
