Notes regarding the FERRARI 458 CHALLENGE WHEEL:
- On PlayStation®3 and PC, the “Ferrari 458 Challenge Wheel” is recognized as a "T500 RS" wheel.
The racing wheel appears onscreen under the name Thrustmaster T500 RS Racing wheel.

Notes regarding the FERRARI F1 racing wheel:
- On PlayStation®3 and PC, the Ferrari F1 racing wheel is recognized as a "T500 RS" wheel.
This is the “Normal Mode” , offering 13 action buttons + D-Pad (in this mode, the D-Pads, shifters and L3/R3 buttons are combined). In this mode, the 2 rotary encoders emulate the D-Pad's 4 main directions. They can therefore be used to alter a car's settings (engines, tires, fairing, etc.). To use them, if required, access your game's Control options and alter them as required.

The racing wheel appears onscreen under the name Thrustmaster T500 RS Racing wheel.

- On PC (only), the racing wheel can be configured in “Advanced Mode” to offer 25 action buttons + 1 D-Pad (in this mode, the 2 rotary encoders, 2 D-Pads, 4 shifters and 4 L3/R3 buttons are configured individually). To do so, in the T500 RS Control Panel, select the Advanced Mode option.

The racing wheel appears onscreen under the name Ferrari F1 wheel Integral T500.
