Fast Friday Video: IndyCar title contender Ryan Hunter Reay explains his steering wheel

Ahead of the 2012 IndyCar season finale this weekend in California, here’s one of the men with a shot at the title (the other being Aussie Will Power) giving you a tour of the massively complicated and expensive steering wheel he uses to pilot his Dallara DW12.

 

 

For those who love to compare F1 to IndyCar, there isn’t much of a tech gap between the two steering wheels, methinks.  Obviously, each F1 wheel is unique to that car, and has many more buttons for things like differential settings, KERS, and DRS, but the IndyCar wheel is a pretty high end piece of kit, too!

 

And for the record, I’m rooting for this guy.  Don’t forget to tune in on Sunday!  GO RHR!
