I just set a 1:19.019 in my Lotus with this set up.

Car was very twitchy with lots of oversteer at times however was good through high speed corners.

Pole position followed by 6th in the race (car spun out when prime tyres were wearing down towards end of race)

I'd rate it 8/10

I'm using skitnik's setup and I manage 1:19:xxx using Virgin , with first sector 17:xxx but I'm still losing time in sector 2. I guess it's the hairpin that I'm too slow with almost 2 sec slower than AI. Can someone give me an advice how to approach this corner. I don't know ,may be I'm just outbreaking myself .
Thanks anyway for the brilliant setup.

That's true. However, with some setups you'll find the car easier to drive (they suit your driving style), so that alone can improve your times significantly.

as i'm unable to setup cars, i use the quick setups when i can't find a custom one here. most of the time i use the minimum downforce dry setup in dry weather, minimum downforce adaptable in intermediates and maximum downforce adaptable in heavy rain, they work nicely.

i was with lotus for my first season and did well with the setting up myself but now im with ferrari i cannot do any setup for it i tried these setups and there is diffrent times they work ok for the car but the 3 diffrent ones that are on here vary a slight bit by -0.5 of a second in diffrent sectors any one got any help or is the ferrari car just murder on the game i have tried a maclaren on time trail and i could get a good time with that too and setup why is ferrari so hard :) :/ anyone know why??

Hi, as you can guess by my post count, I'm new here and I figured the best way to introduce myself was to post one of my setups. I've managed to pull off high 1.14's in qualifying near the end of Q1 and Q2 (Q3 is usually a 1.15 because I run hard Compounds) and during the race consistent low 1.15's with high 1.14's when the track is rubber-ed in with a set of Soft Compounds. I'm not that good of a driver so you could probably go a lot faster than high 1.14's.

Thanks for the Gear Ratio Warped, wasn't perfect but very close... had to increase Gear 7 a little to stop it from hitting the rev limit but apart from that very good.
