Based on the premises of the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula One Team, Brackley, a purpose-built esports training centre provides the team’s gamers with world class facilities and state-of-the-art equipment from our Esports partners, to develop their skills, train and compete. Being integrated into the Driver-in-Loop Simulator department, where F1 development drivers provide feedback to engineers on a virtual model of the car, the esports programme will benefit from transferable elements pertinent to optimising car set-up and honing race craft.
What I personally like about these pedals, is how easy it is to get used to them. The throttle pedal is amazing, I can already feel how much easier it is to calculate the exact amount of input I want out of corners compared to many other pedals which are so much harder to calculate. Furthermore, the SmartControl from Heusinkveld is incredible. I can exactly customise how I want my pedals set-up and adapt them to other cars which need different inputs, which makes it so much easier for games like iRacing where you are usually changing the type of car you use. With the pedals I can be much more precise with the amount of inputs I want to apply on both the throttle and the brake, and ultimately you can see that in lap time and consistency.
The Heusinkveld Sim Pedals Ultimate+ are a great tool for us drivers, helping us to extract the most out of ourselves. The best feature probably is that each pedal is fully customisable, which enables us to be much more consistent and helps us perform at the highest level. These pedals are great for anyone who is trying to reach the top of sim racing.
The precision of the throttle pedal and the amazing feel of the brake pedal can give that little edge of confidence which is crucial in racing. Personally, I have found that the recent software update that makes it easier to change the throttle and brake shape which is a massive help when changing between different racing games. Every sim needs different styles and this help a lot with that! The quality and durability of the pedals is amazing.
