I have a Logitech G-27 Force Feedback Racing Wheel. This is what I recommend because there are many possible adjustment problems, and I have so far ironed those out with this wheel. The problem is that the G-27 is no longer made, and the price has gone up.

Update: I managed to find my old TrackIR setup, which is a 3 point sensor worn on the headset, and a receiver placed on the computer monitor. It works in F1 2018, and some earlier versions of that game. The difference between racing with TrackIR and without it is significant especially because of the F1 2018 requirement to look around the Halo, and look left or right into the mirrors. Without TrackIR the game allows keypresses to suddenly change your viewpoint from straight ahead to either the right mirror of the left mirror, and that is very disorienting, but Track IR allows a slight movement of the head to the right or left and the viewpoint is then able to see into the mirror. The viewpoint changes in all directions, so a movement sideways will allow the driver to look around the Halo post.


Having tested F12018 with TrackIR on once so far, at the Belgian GP (Spa). It is, to me, essential to have this Track IR, and I like leaning my head into the turns as if preparing for the G-force.
