Notes
Tested with McLaren. 4th time globally after a few laps (two driving assisted pilots :)ups:) in between)

I am getting the impression that the same setup rules apply as in DTM Race Driver 2 a few years back. Make it as stiff as possible when you can handle it. Needs further testing.

Ha Lotus doesn't like this setup! Think I might need to take it a bit more cautiously!

Very nice Bram 1:28.372 :)

With the perfect lap I think I can get into the 27's and if I'm lucky I could take the No.1 spot. I'm making sure everyone knows it's an RD setup as well :good:

Guys, thanks for all this. I am new to this on PS3 and I am enjoying these setups. Anyone to tell us the gears with the mph figures for the above setup.
Ramon, I am a really fan of your setup so please is that time with all assist turned off?

Great Setup! Thanks!

Seems to work with the Sauber car too. 1.32,9 with prime and 1.32,0 with the option and there are better times possible because i never had a really good lap without any mistake.

Heh... 1:31.763 on Q2 for Button as fastest RL Suzuka time so far. *(1:30.785 for Vettel on Q3)

Bram's setups are usually a good orientation for me but it doesn't really work with KB driving and my Virgin om 1st career season. So I tweak it here and there till I get some decent timing compared to the major teams. Usually I get P1 since I'm playing on Easy with Braking and Line assist off. (Gladly I know most of the tracks from other F1 games).

1:36 low with the Virgin, KB driving. I'm sure wheel users can get a very good time with this because my main struggle, without the steering help from other F1 games, are on the turns because keeping the perfect line with steady throttle with the KB is nearly impossible.
