    I've noticed that the minimum pressure available in AMS for the Formula V10 is 80 kpa which equates to about 11 psi. I've heard that the V10 cars used in that era were running a hot PSI of around 11-14 psi, so in theory, shouldn't the minimum cold pressure allowed be around 5-6 psi (~40 kpa)? Or am I completely wrong? lol

    Or does the setup screen account for the tyre blankets on the F1 cars which would naturally account for the higher starting pressure value?

    Wow, only 11-14 PSI? Sounds way too low. In SCE you could abuse camber and pressures, I think you can perhaps do the same in AMS.

    Edit: Abuse with a lot of negative camber and high tire pressure.

    Yes, whatever pressure you put in the garage will be your starting pressure.

    I think it was a bit higher than that (15-16 PSI), with 2-3 PSI difference to cold pressures depending on the track layout.
