Thrustmaster released an update for their steering wheels that most notably does take care of a few issues with Codemasters F1 23. While the firmware simply lists “Force Feedback improvement”, the driver contains many more changes that include fixes for freezing and more. You can grab the download via Thrustmaster Support.

**IMPORTANT**:
– IF A DRIVER PACKAGE FOR YOUR PRODUCT IS ALREADY INSTALLED ON THE COMPUTER, RUNNING THE PACKAGE INSTALLATION ONCE WILL ACTUALLY UNINSTALL THE PREVIOUS VERSION.
IT WILL THEN BE NECESSARY TO RUN IT AGAIN TO PROCEED TO THE INSTALLATION OF THE NEW VERSION
– DO NOT CONNECT the racing wheel to your PC before being prompted to do so.
– DO NOT CLICK in any Windows-specific panes that may appear during the update process.
– RESTART THE COMPUTER once the package setup is complete.

**Important notes regarding F1 22 – PC**:
– In addition to installing this new driver, it is also recommended to disconnect your other USB gaming devices (such as USB shifter, USB handbrake, USB gamepad, etc.) in order to avoid any conflicts with USB wheels and/or USB pedal sets.
– If you are using a Ferrari F1 Wheel Add-On simultaneously with a T-LCM Pedals set connected via USB, you must select NORMAL Mode (and not ADVANCED MODE) in the Thrustmaster Control Panel. You can select ADVANCED MODE only if the T-LCM Pedals set is connected directly to the Thrustmaster wheel base with the RJ12 cable.

**Installation**:
1- Double-click the installation file (2023_TTRS_4.exe) to proceed with the installation.
2- Follow the instructions displayed onscreen.
3- When done:
* Select Start/All Apps/Thrustmaster/FFB Racing Wheel/Control Panel. (Windows 10/11)
* Or, your keyboard, click simultaneously on the Windows + R keys. The Run window opens, type “joy.cpl”, then click OK

The racing wheel appears onscreen with the status indication OK

4- In the Control Panel, click Properties to configure your racing wheel:
* Test Input: Enables you to test the buttons, the D-Pad, the Wheel, the Pedals and to configure wheel Rotation Angle.
* Test Forces: Enables you to test 12 force effects.
* Gain Settings: Enables you to configure the Force Feedback.

Click on OK to save your settings and exit the Control Panel.

You are now ready to race!

** Notes regarding the FERRARI F1 racing wheel**:
– On PC, the Ferrari F1 racing wheel is recognized and appears onscreen under the name Thrustmaster T-GT Racing Wheel or TS-XW RACER (USB)
or TS-PC RACER or Thrustmaster T500 RS Racing Wheel, Thrustmaster TX Racing wheel, or Thrustmaster T300 RS Racing 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.
– 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 Control Panel, select the Advanced Mode option.
The racing wheel appears onscreen under the name Ferrari F1 Wheel Advanced T-GT or Ferrari F1 Wheel Advanced TS-XW Racer
or Ferrari F1 Wheel Advanced TS-PC Racer or Ferrari F1 wheel Integral T500 or Ferrari F1 wheel Advanced TX or Ferrari F1 wheel Advanced T300.

**General comments**:
– For most games: in the OPTIONS/CONTROLS/FORCE FEEDBACK settings, Force Feedback effects must be set to “POSITIVE = + Values” or “NON-REVERSED”.
