    Did not take long to find this one! Used Preset 4 to start with, and noticed how planted the car was and nailed a decent lap right away. Such a nice track to drive on after Australia and Bahrain. So from there all was needed was a few tweaks to get me into the 1:35s and 40th on the leaderboard. Didn't completely nail every corner on the lap so there's a few tenths to find at least. It drives really well and I hope others feel the same way.

    Hey racing mates, it's me again, continuing my Haas series here for the whole season and all tracks. Race 3 is in China and I really like the design of this track.. but God damn to find a setup and to deal with tyre wear here is a hard task. Was tuning around a lot and didn't find a good solution for more than 8 laps and then got some inspiration by an "extreme" time trial setup. I was pretty sure it won't work for 100% career but I gave it a shot and.. it worked! The handling with this setup is absolutely awesome, the Haas never felt that good. And tyre wear is very good, you should do the management programme with ease ;)
    This time, I post the setup after I did the race, so I added lap data screenshots from the race for you. You can see that we started on Inters and afterwards my engineer pulled out a 2 stop strategy with mediums because I chosee the harder compounds for the weekend. Some others did 3 stopps with supersoft/soft/medium but it should end up the same when you deal with the wear and when you are not stuck in traffic. Had a terrific race with VSC at the end and some hard DRS fights against Williams but ended up 8th and that's a really strong result on Legend without assists in a Haas in my opinion :)

    Hope this setup works nice for you and as always, I would like to here from you guys. Cheers!

    Notes:
    This was done on a ps4 using a controller. It pushes a little on acceleration, decent on braking into mechanical corners, and no problems with downforce corners. Tweak to your liking. Caution: This stunt was performed by a non professional on a closed Curcuit TV. Please try this at home.

    Notes
    *Race Setup* - I made a wet setup for this track, and I was going to use it but I ended up having a dry qualifying. Only thing was .. I didn't check the weather info and the race started in heavy wet conditions. Somehow... through crazy aquaplaning and drifting, I was able to go quicker than the rest of the field and get way out in front. I wondered if the Master setting (changed it since Bahrain) was not difficult enough.

    When the track dried up I no longer had the pace and I was swamped by much quicker Mercs, Ferrari and Red Bulls. Ended up sixth again though, which I accepted after such a crazy first half.
