Monza - Italy (Wet)

Discussion in 'F1 2013 Setups' started by Dan Hawkins, Mar 22, 2013.

  1. The Italian Grand Prix is one of the longest running events on the motor racing calendar. The first Italian Grand Prix motor racing championship took place on 4 September 1921 at Brescia. However, the race is more closely associated with the course at Monza, which was built in 1922 in time for that year's race, and has been the location for most of the races over the years. A Low downforce, high speed circuit, requiring precise cornering for a perfect lap.

    Notes
    Career: Set up was to maximize traction to gain a faster speed down the long straights however it back fired and probably needs less down force. I tried to make the set up tire friendly without sacrificing to much performance with the alignment, as it was heavy rain all race and in qualifying. I felt that saving the 3 sets of wets was paramount to having a good race.

    P.S. My first EVER set up I did on my own so please feel free to add suggestions tweaks and whatnot and let me know how it worked out for you.

    Notes
    With a light fuel load I was doing low 25's with this setup. I did a 100% race distance with this and it was a bit tricky in the first stint on full wets but after changing over to the 2nd set of wets the car really came alive. All assists off.
