Wow, I'm almost two seconds off the pace. I would download your ghost if I didn't hate the ghost feature in this game so intensely. You can't turn off the ghost, and if you download another ghost, you still can't turn off your own PB. I really wonder if this was done on purpose.

I can't even get below 1:40's, I don't see how you guys are that low. The car just does not turn, and I'm using a McLaren.

Disable all driving help and drive it like you are chased by a devil :) Also very important to drive the correct lines. Downloading a good ghostcar helps.

Yeah, I don't use any aids, and as far as driving like I'm being chased, that doesn't work well lol. I've even tried to use the best line but just can't get this place figured out. The long left hand corner shows you can take it flat out, Try it and I make it no where near halfway through before the car is going off the track wide. Terribly frustrating so far.

Tested with McLaren: 1.32.7 easier to drive with than OP's. And an improvement on gear ratios. However still needs a little tweaking. Remember to adjust wing angle throughout the lap.

@DJ i had the same problem to but just lift off the gas ever so slightly but tweak with the alignment might help with that corner

Just did a 1.31:774 with standard Slight Oversteer quick setup as I couldn't get grips on OP's setup.
Found it way to snappy at the back and requiring too much short shifting.
Noticed from my setup that I could improve section 1 by .4 secs and sector 2 at least .2 secs
Still need some time to thoroughly test my absolute max with this setup.
Rear wing could drop a little and ride height should go down a notch or 2. Guessing that'll give another .8 sec due to reduced understeer in high speed corners and more top speed on the straights.

Will post results and setup asap.

HI. Thanks for your configuration. It really helps! :cool:
I'm in career mode and the race is rain.
Someone I can pass the configuration of rain?

I can't make the hairpin without going off the track. reducing the speed or altering the turn-in point doesn't help either. the steering lock just doesn't cut it :/

Thanks for sharing guys. I'll try both posted setups and see which one works best for me.

This is really frustrating.. :/
I'm guessing you guys are using actual wheels and pedals for driving the game. Well, I use my gamepad and although I try to use your setups I'm like suddenly 3 seconds off the pace in China.
I finally got into a McLaren in the carreer and thus have started to make it harder (better AI, less driving aid) and I did very well in the first 3 races, but in China I can't even get better than 1:41 whereas the AI is driving 1:38 or better.
I've tried all the setups I could find via Google..
Is there something I'm doing wrong?

Edit: Okay, with a perfect round I can get barely below 1:40, but still about 2 seconds short..

I have the same problem also, and I am driving with my gamepad. Will try youtube to take a look at one of those 1:31 fast laps.

Mark Webber does max speed at 310 km/h. That is a totally different setup than the ones being proposed here. Will try these later.
