    Notes
    1.39.682 in TT with pad. Not a clean lap and once again I am not one of the best drivers so feel free to post improvements! Of extra need to be highlighted here is the fact this setup is geared towards race more than qualifying. You may find the gearing a little weird especially round 5 and 6 if your pushing up DRS everywhere so keep in mind to downshift from 6 to f5 in between turns 7 and 8.

  4. Hey can I get some Ferrari set ups here? It seems as tho in this game the set ups are even more sensitive than last year.

    Notes
    1:39.701 in Q2 with the Lotus, good enough for 1st on Legend difficulty. Q3 it rained so don't have a proper dry time for that.
    Best time in the race: 1:43.271 on the primes.

    This setup is based on Viktor Andersson's setup for Australia. Gear ratios are from James Kirk's setup above (I really suck at doing gear ratios), with 7th gear reduced slightly to give a better balance between qualifying and the race.

    The brake balance is set to 50-50 as in the game this year I find the rear end to be quite tail-happy under braking with rear bias, so it's just a personal thing. If you can deal with having a bit of rear bias you might want to set the brakes to F48-R52, that bit of rear bias might help getting the car around some of the tighter corners.

    For 50% race engineer will try and 2 stop, however you can 2 stop and put options on instead of primes, will easily make it to the end, or even 1 stop but its easier to just stick some options on for the end lol

    1:36.966 TT
    1:38.1xx Q3 McLaren with a pretty scruffy lap.

    Q3 Lap:
    Almost completely lost the back end out of each hairpin in the bid for a very quick lap and was still about a second and a half quicker than the Legend AI.

    With the TT lap:
    I'm sure I could take another 4 tenths off this but my driving ability will always mean that I make a mistake somewhere in the lap, although I was pleased with the lap overall getting the second half of the lap pretty spot on. Using the 360 pad as well so a wheel user will probably be able to take further time off that. Any feedback on this is welcome as it's the first setup I've really done. Also I reckon you could extend 7th gear out a bit further as I was on the limiter on the long straight but you could compensate that with using KERS more on the straight after turn 3.

    Other Notes:
    I find the car very easy to drive despite the fact I get the sliding a bit more than I'd like. I just get a bit throttle happy out of slow corners. Maybe it's because I've took to the track so well (never got any real chance last year to drive it as I was late to get the game) but it's comfortably my best track on this game so far.

    New Edit :- I have cut this time down to a 1:36.664. I changed the wings to 8-7 and stiffened up the suspension and the roll bars (forgot to save the setup). Got a slightly better lap in despite being marginally slower in S1. Still I reckon with my driving ability I could knock a couple of tenths off that if I could nail the first turn and not get a hint of oversteer after turn 3. I have so much fun with this track which puts me in the minority but the second half of the track flows beautifully in my opinion.

  12. Nice setup for the Sauber too, a bit unstable down the straights but great balance through the last 2 sectors, especially on the Super Softs, great corner speed!
     
  13. Losing a lot of time (>.500) in the second sector. Any tips for that area guys? Are you supposed to be able to use DRS through turns 7 and 8? I can't without spinning.
     
  14. Second sector you really need a stable car to flow through that entire section, hence my wing settings. It requires just being very precise to maximise your time and it will take practice. I also feel that this is a track where you have to trust the car will keep you on the road, particularly in sector 2. I don't keep DRS open through 7 and 8 either, I'll try get it open half way through 8 however.
     
  15. First of all I really like this setup but what I did was to higher the ride height to 3-2 to help with the curbs in S3 and that helped me attack the curbs alot.

  16. | Career and Multiplayer setup! |

    Hey guys,
    I saw some other setups of you guys, very nice! :)
    This one is for the Multiplayer and the race in career of Yeongam. (Dry)
    - I play always on Legend. 25% races.

    Every single detail can better. But this is not a TT setup. so everyone knows that your tires wear out, so maybe is this really fine for people who are don't know how to make a good setup for multiplayer and career. :)

    So I know every car in career is different but if you have some trouble with this setup you can improve with some of the settings. Much oversteer? Change your rear anti roll bar. Trouble with top speed? Change your front and rear wing and your gearbox of course. etc.. etc.. :)
    So good luck! And hope you like the setup. :D

    THIS IS ONLY FOR RACES AND FOR MULTIPLAYER.
    I Know if your using a TT setup you will just get stuck with the gearbox, which not give you enough top speed without DRS.

    Not a favourite track of mine, FPS dropped quite a lot as well when I started recording. Well, made it around the track at least.​

    Great setup ;)
    I´m driving the Lotus in my first career season (25%,AI on Legend; TC on and ABS on and with PAD)

    I take this setup and manage to do a 1:39:163 in Q3. Great lap, Maybe i could drive just a little bit faster but it was okay i think. Pole Position.
    In the race it was great to. I was able to drive the AI times and my fastest lap was a 1:41:xxx. Winning the race ahead of Alonso and Hamilton.
