I used the Dry (Max.) for Montreal and adjusted the following and drove an 1.12.204 (with McLaren):
Front ride height: 2
Rear ride height: 2
Pressure: high
Brake size: small
Throttle Map: fast

I'll try yours tomorrow, let's see if the camber and toe settings can improve my time. Cheers!

with Simons Setup I've done a 1:11.556, currently 17th in the World.

Front Wing 2 instead of 3,
Breaking 50:50
and Throttle Map: fast

with the Mclaren.

the setup is great but not perfect for me, I have got a bit oversteer, I changed the front wing from 3 to 2 and still I have to change other parameters to acclerate better out of the corners, like the one chicane right after section one.

I am only using TCS on medium in the hotlap mode.

@Nestroit:
there is a template on how to note setup data, be as kind as to use it, everyone else does

With Simon's setup I did 1:16.8xx with a Virgin in Career Mode :) And I gote pole and eventually almost a win with puncture in last lap and I finished second without getting into the pits. Thanks a lot

Judging by my weather forecast I will be racing in the wet, any chance of a wet setup? I posted a 1:17:xxx in the dry in BMW but always use the same setup for both dry and wet races and fail miserably. Any help appreciated.

If your career runs the same as mine skit & Wal, don't worry, it doesn't rain until 2 laps from home on A 20% race distance, all you need to change is add more downforce and more front break bias (test it in Time Trial and see what you get when you've changed it to raining), I pitted the lap after my engineer told me to come in and kept dry tyres on the AI cars went to inters on the penultimate lap which lost them time and allowed me to ease off and control my driving.

I think I've got it on 20%, say's 85% of rain on race day, will try that tactic if it works for you.

Thanks Nestroit. I was running 1:15s with no assist. Just a few laps with your set-up and I got a 1:13.924, again with no assists. I think I'm going to work on the gears a little more.

I basically used Simon's setup but instead of the lowest downforce quick setting I used the 4th from the right on the slider. I a 1:16.164 which was fastest in practice. And in qualifying on option tires I did a 1:17.693 which was got me the pole. I haven't raced it yet but I'm sure it will be good.
