    Wow, thanks @John Oliver

    This literally takes 8 seconds off from the default setup. Maximum downforce for the win!

    Ofcouse ,maximum downforce! this circuit has a lot of high speed corners ! you can still go faster ... i think the fastest lap will be around low 21s or high 20s !

    Thanks for sharing !

    I normaly run within less than one second off the top times so id say a 22 or maybe 21.9 at best,that said I may still improve this time yet.

    I did 1,23,04 so far but there is 0,5 to cut. But that's it. Don't know how to go below 1,21....

    I don't understand it either maybe very low wings but then car is too unstable
    im gonna work on the damping today maybe a lot of time to gain there.

    I am searching an setup for the Ferrari F14T and i found very bad that the Lotus 98t is actually quicker than a car that is, how much, 20 and some years newer ?
    Anyway thanks for the setup!

    I agree this 98t seems too easy to drive

    I think it's okay tbh.
    On a 100% grippy track then most things are fairly easy, because there's grip for days! :D

    Keep in mind this year's F1 is on average a few seconds slower than the V8 era which were already slower than the 2004-spec V10s (which could have been even quicker if they didn't have to use grooved tyres).

    Also hotlaps on optimum tracks, 100% boost, no fuel and qualifying tyres are meaningless, as those sorts of settings would have only lasted a lap in real life.

    Here's a comparison of pole times at Monza (1986 version is slightly different than modern version, but it's the best comparison between all cars for pace) :
    1986: 1:24.078
    2004: 1:20.089
    2010: 1:21.962
    2013: 1:23.755
    2014 AC Hotlap record: 1:24.5 (no DRS and ERS quali settings, expect 23s and maybe 22s next week)

    As you can see, the difference is relatively close considering the 28 year time span. On other tracks the 2014 spec car is slower than 2013 by upwards of a few seconds which would put in on par and maybe slightly slower than 1986 in race-trim. Yes 2014 F1 is that slow right now. :p

    F1s constant restrictions from the mid-2000s onwards have limited just what F1 could have been really, and I believe breaking the 1:20 in 2004 would have been easily possible with slick tyres at the very least. Times and expectations of F1 have changed since then and sadly pure speed is a victim of it.

    That being said, with the quality of racing this year I want the current formula around for a while yet. :)

    You are right about it, and of course i am familiar with the f1 cars of 2004 and 2010 etc and like we can see and you shown us, the gap from 1984 to 2014 is not more than a second in favor to 2014 where here you have a lap time difference of 1 second or 2 in favor of 1984 lets say. They need to be little harder for drive at least.

    Maybe, but that's a different discussion that only people who have driven the actual 98T could really answer. A lot of the difficulty of driving these cars was due to the physicality of driving a car with such extreme gforces that we can't ever experience in the sim world. Sims like AC might have accurate representations of the car itself, but they can never be 100% true to the real thing due to this. :)
