Top gaming chairs for a thrilling racing experience

4th September 2018


It's that time again when the F1 season resumes from its summer break and Codemasters release one of the most anticipated racing games of the year.

F1 2018 is the 10th instalment in the video game series and has so far received rave reviews with The Guardian claiming it to be 'thrillingly close to the real thing'.

When it comes to racing games, the more immersive the experience, the closer you get to feeling as exhilarated as Hamilton and Vettel when the lights go out.

For those looking to get closer to the track action, a gaming chair is the perfect place to start.

Comfort is key when racing a full Grand Prix, so we take a look at the top gaming chairs to use with the all-new Formula One game:


The Playseat Evolution is a real car seat covered with black alcantara to provide a high quality finish touch. It's supported by a strong black steel structure which gives the driving simulator great stability and robustness.

The seat is easy to store thanks to its patented foldable design and provides a realistic racing simulation at a very competitive price.


The Sensation Pro is a chair for the elite gamer who wants to take their racing to the highest possible level. It is fully adjustable for players of all sizes, you can easily control the incline of the seat, the distance to the pedals and steering wheel, as well as the angle of the screen… and much more.

The seat has been created to resemble the experience of driving a real race car and its unique quality has even be acknowledged by professional racing drivers.


If you're looking for a less permanent fixture, this racing seat is the one for you. It folds up for easy storage when you're not using it so it's perfect if you are restricted by available space. This seat provides a realistic, highly adjustable racing solution for users who have a lower budget.


If you want to feel like Daniel Ricciardo or Max Verstappen then there really is no better seat than the official Aston Martin Red Bull Racing Cockpit. Its slick design matches that of a real F1 car including the official branding and logos of the Red Bull Formula One team.

It doesn't just look great though- this cockpit incorporates a patented F1 coated framework as well as a high quality leather look-vinyl, which provide excellent comfort and stability.

Take your pick and enjoy burning some virtual rubber!

F1 2018 will be released globally on the 24th August for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC DVD.
