I am afraid you are the one who knows nothing about F1. And contrary to what some have suggested, I am not being sarcastic, I am dead serious. The picture below should put an end to this discussion!

6MT, physical clutch pedal, physical stick shift and no shift lights FTW!!!!!! Just like in Formula 1

I'm not sure where you got that picture, but I don't think it's an F1 car! That tach only goes to 11000 rpm and current engines rev to 18K...that tach would be useless in an F1 car!

Also a simple search on F1's official site will show you that gearboxes in F1 are paddle-shifted sequential units.

just look at all them dials and numbers ... might he need a co-driver like a good pilot needs a bombardier?

I would be lost with all them dials and lights ... then I am older and go by sound and feel no need for all them dials and lights

Wow! I was expecting a little more from such a knowlageable crowd... To fall for a grossly altered F1 steering wheel picture and a couple of sarcastic remarks from a guy who owns a M3 with DCT (on my signature)... Disappointing.

Now, to say that shift lights are useless is just nonsense. Nearly all (if not all) racing cars and the vast majority of performance-oriented cars have them. The fact that one can keep both eyes on the road/track and use peripheral vision to know exactly when to change gears, every time, under any condition, is a no-brainer. To even suggest that one is better off "feeling the engine" or looking down at the rev counter for the redline is just silly. And I am not even talking about the 6MT vs DCT thing.

I wonder what is the next argument from the 6MT guys?
- ABS is for people who do not know how to pump the brakes.
- EDC is for people who do not know how to appreciate the mechanical feel of leaf springs.
- Airbags are for pussies afraid of a of dying in a car crash.

PS. Below is the unaltered picture of a F1 steering wheel (BMW Sauber), with the shift lights on the top and no tach.

What I want to know is why did they stop with just shift lights?

I want brake lights to know when I should apply the brake, acceleration lights so I know when to hit the gas pedal, mirror lights to help remind me to check the mirror, and a turn light so I know when to put on my signal and make a turn.

I also want food lights so I don't forget to eat. And a shit light, so I don't forget to take a dump. I don't need a beer light - that's not something I need to be reminded of. But I would like a tail light to notify me of any hot piece of ass in the area.

Had a bad college roomate with a night light that came on like every few minutes. I was like "what with the light?". He said - "That's my masturbation light. It comes on to remind me to rub one out." So, I shot him.
