One of the features of this year's game is the ability in time trial to use the setup of anyone who has posted a time on the leaderboard.

One consequence is that it might be something of a disincentive to share setups on this forum; another, that the TT setup might not work too well in other modes of the game - tyre-wear for example (though this aspect is rather difficult to gauge since, at least to me, tyre wear is hard to detect and seems less of an issue in this year's game).

Differential is probably the most significant new option this year. Looking at the setups from the top of the leaderboards, 100% on throttle seems a norm. But of course, the top times tend to be a Mercedes, which seems to me to behave as though it has TC compared to lower tier cars. The 100% on throttle doesn't work so well on a Marussia (2014 season).

Wings do seem to give nose and grip this year though.

But to be honest, I continue to remain bemused by the setup options in this year's game.

Tyre pressures? Anyone detect an effect?

Differential setting definitely have an impact, but more so in lower tier cars.

The one thing that surprised me the most is that on some cases they seem to go against conventional wisdom. Since when ballast to the front causes understeer?
