    I wonder how setup does'nt affect cars behavior. Putting rear wing at 11 or 1 change is very small.
    I have seen people racing Monaco GP with rear wing at11 and make hotlap.
    This is crazy, absolutely not realistic, don't you agree?

    First, this is arcade game, not sim. The main target of this game is casual gamer who doesn't know car setup basics.

    Second(this is dominant reason), in this game, we can only change setup parameters in some predefined small range, not absolute values. In each track, basic setup values are defined by CM, then we can adjust those. So, 11 at monza doesn't equal to 11 at monaco.The worst part is we never know absolute setup value. That makes you confusion.

    11 on Monza generates probably less downforce than 1 on Monaco indeed.
