    Hello guys,

    I am new to Formula 1 games but I have to say I have enjoyed F1 2010 (PS3) alot. This may be a stupid type of question but please excuse me cos I am a noobie still lol. When I race online I notice that the majority of cars are faster then me especially on straights on tracks. Do you know any tweaks to my setup which may help me gain more speed? I do not know hardly anything when setting up a car so I usually just do a quick car setup through the engineer.

    Thanks for any help guys. Much appreciated.

    Z.

    Thanks, Z.

    then adjust gearbox to be almost on 7th limiter in the end of the longer straight line
    and for some tracks you can put 1/1 wings

    no i think you can brake later as it sets the brake pressure to high and pads on small the wheels will lock up easier with this just dont jam on the brakes also the oversterr doesnt bother me just dont hammer on the throttle and make sure the cars straight out of the corner thats the style i drive in also alex is right 7th as high as you can and 1/1 on the wings is a great idea

    zzeezzy - Im with the others. For some strange reason the cars in this game respond well to running extremely low downforce at most circuits, unless its wet or your running around say monaco. Having nearly no wing angle will help you loads down the straights yet it wont strangely hinder you too much through the corners. Itsa crazzy!

    I am hoping that they sort the set up system out as they do not really have that much affect only downforce the rest is set to the max or min of there settings there is a good set up section in the forums found here

    http://www.racedepartment.com/f1-2010-setups/

    best place to start

    sorry zzeezzy +1 mean I agree with anthony's post above

    yes clik on the right on quick setup then choose dry the most on the right.
    then go to downforce settings menu, you will see 3 and 1 => put 1 and 1
    go on track and in the end of the longer straight line (there you are on max speed), if the 7th gear is too early on the limiter that means you have to increase the value of 7th gear on the menu, then test again and again
    the optimal situation is when you are on speed limiter just before braking after the longer straight line
    sorry for the english
