So my time is real and I am glad that I myself have not had such errors.
I hope this a good set up, but man must always involve your riding Steal!
I hope I could help and I will of course continue to work to deliver results!
Have fun testing.)
PS / I have been playing with the X-Box 360 :)

Doesn't work with Force India :/
This setup doesn´t work !
Could you guys please elaborate on what 'doesn't work'? Is it the top speed? not enough downforce? Too twitchy on the kerbs? By providing a little more details it might be possible for others to improve the setup and make it work :)

I haven't tried out any setup for this track yet, but the track layout seems like it could use a setup like monaco.. don't take my word for it tho, when it comes to setting up cars i'm still quite the noob, as I've noticed after trying some other setups posted by the more experienced guys over here ;)

I've not tested it yet but I would say the gears are set to high with the high downforce

Managed a 1:41:301 in a red bull (PS3 using G25, used the racing line cuz i don't know the track yet but no other assists). It's not among fastest on the board but that's probably more because of me then because of a bad setup ;)

I raised the ride height a little to get over the curbs more easily, and decreased gear ratio because of the short straights, as well as some other minor changes. I'm gonna have a go at budapest tonight, i think I'm starting to like a time trial mode in a game for the 1st time lol :)

This got me pole on Professional difficulty (high 1:47). I'm sure many of you could do better, as I'm not the greatest race driver, but the car feels good to drive. Maybe you could mess with the gearing a little, as with this you take the last corner in the low 5th, so acceleration out of it is not great, but I haven't noticed any other issues. Except the curbs. The curbs here are made of concentrated primordial evil.

lap times in this game are faked, the real lap in Marina Bay was 1'45' by Alonso, the developer should fix this in the patch

Thats right, the real lap in Marina Bay was 1'45' by Alonso. Wait until there is a fix for this. I am new to this game on PS3 but I follow Formula for the past 10 years.

Plus I find it weird that so many really different setup adjustments can give around the same best lap time. I mean, all the way up vs all the way down on height, wings, springs, anti rollbar, should have some impact on lap times despite the driving style. As it is, it seems that anything works for this track.

Tried lots of different setups too and I mean LOTS. Nothing works for my Virgin on Career mode as well. Not even DavorM's. But again, I'm hating street circuits with a KB in this particular game.

Well, here's what got me 1:47.500 sharp with the Virgin on KB, at Qualifying (pole atm). Could've done a lot better with a wheel, I suppose. (1:45.4 with option tires, 1:46.8 at the race with prime tires after the pit)

So i try to give some small Tips for this Course and how i managed this time.

With my Setup u will be able to get some Advance from cutting some Curbs for e.g. the small Shicane and the Curbs of some wide spreaded Curves.

On this Track u need to get some Breaking energy into some Curves so its nessesary to get your Braking-Balance to the Heck. So u will be able to steer into the Curves right when u are Breakin. This works on some other Courses like Monza aswell.

So try out wich Curbs u can hit and which not. Some give u advance in Steeering into/out of Curves and some (mostly in the Hard edged Curves) will make u spin out.

Take ure Time to Train on the Tracks and to find best Setups and u will be able to own the whole Season even on Legend Mode and with the slowest Cars. (Best is to get u on Pole and then u will be the Man who finishes on Place 1!)

Cheers
