    All these buttons, switches, dials, gizmo's and other do-dads "look" like "driver assist" mechanisms.......all being relayed back and forth to the pits and HQ in real time.

    No wonder it's more car....than driver.

    I love technology on my smart phone or when I go to a doctors visit....in F1 and in cars...no so much. I recently attended a BMW race for the cure event....they let you drive all models that were available for free....I chose all their M's cars and told the guy accompaning my that I wanted all the driver assist crap switched off and wanted paddle shifts.....we both had alot of fun.

    If he finishes the season ahead of Leclerc he will be considered a F1 future great. At least there's some interest for fans at the back of the track during the races.

    lol i hope Sauber Alfa destroys williams this year, weaker car but better drivers (Ericsson and prodigy Leclerc)

    Was worried Sauber's steering wheel will reveal some secrets about Ferrari parts or engine info or something.

    I don't think a driver necessarily see this the same way as laymen do.

    Things like differential setting or fuel mixture are stuff race drivers know how it works, and what they want.
    I'd imagine any car enthusiast who tunes their car have to know these stuff, let alone race drivers who have to setup their race cars.

    Perhaps the less common thing here is the energy recovery system settings. But this is not unique to F1 either today.

    To laymen, it may seem more complex simply because they don't know what those setting do, and feel that the drivers are fiddling with knobs that does rocket science stuff.
