If the gear changes button are on the stearing that means trying to change gear while turning will be very difficult.
So this is probably useful if you are going straight only.

I think the paddles are not actually on the face of the steering wheel but as paddles behind the wheel at 9 and 3 o'clock positions. If you've got your hands at those positions, which I think they should be for any spirited driving, then I think you would just reach with your fingers for the paddle while still maintaining contact with the wheel. Just my guess.
I dont know if im driving correctly, but I dont change gears in a turn very often. I was just thinking in what situation the turning/shifting might be a problem but I dont really recall a situation where I was shifting thru a turn unless I made a mistake on the initial turn in for the turn. Im not an expert driver so I dont know if this is right or not. But I would think it would be easier to pull on a paddle as opposed to shifting manually in any type of situation.
I just hope the system is as good as people seem to make it out to be. Seems like a very complicated system.

The flippers are mounted on the wheel assembly and turn as the wheels turns.. I actually find this kinda annoying - esp when I turn into a 90 degree corner... as a result I usually use the stick to shift in such cases, as the flipper positions are inverted.
