This menu can also be accessed in the GT Menu by pressing the GT logo in the top left corner of the World Map. Then press R1 to scroll over to Controllers and select Wireless Controller 1P. If you’re using a wheel, select your specific wheel from the list.

From here, use the d-pad or left analogue stick to select your preferred button by pressing cross. Then select Change View to reassign the camera change view button.
