F1 2020 Australia Setup TN

Australia is the first race in F1 2020, and the track is Albert Park.

An awkward mix of high and low speed corners makes having the right setup essential.

Couple that with some very unforgiving kerbs, and the Australian GP is not one to tackle lightly.

Let’s take a look at the setup you should be using if you want to be competitive at Albert Park!

Aerodynamics

The awkward mix of straights and tight corners means you have to make a trade-off.

This means we ended up running with 5-4 as the wings, 5 on the front, and 4 on the rear.

This is the sweet spot between retaining a car that is responsive enough to tackle the corners and fast enough on the straights.

Transmission

Albert Park has a nice surface to race on, meaning that traction isn’t the be all and end all.

Australia Trans

As such, we recommend running the minimum setup of 50% for on- and off-throttle.

This should give you the confidence to floor it out of most any corner without worrying about that dreaded tyre wall.

Suspension Geometry

Due to the complexity of the circuit, your camber selection is incredibly important.

Finding the balance between pace and tyre wear is the key, and that is achieved by going with -3.10 on the fronts and -1.40 on the rear.

Toe is the next factor to consider, and we went with 0.11 on the front and 0.38 on the rear.

This should help you fire the car nicely into the corner whilst also providing the stability needed to power out of the turn.

Suspension

The high kerbs of Albert Park require a softer suspension than normal. We went with 4-2, which should help keep tyre wear low as well.

For anti-roll bars, 5-5 is the sweet spot, as it allows you to really put the power in out of the final corner into the long home straight.

Despite the minimal loss in top speed, we recommend a figure of 5-6 for ride height. Once again this takes into account the high kerbs.

Brakes

For brake pressure, we’ve gone with 100%, as Albert Park is a relatively flat circuit.

Australia Brakes

To help with this, we’ve gone with a brake bias of 53%, which should help the fronts from locking up around the track.

Tyres

The long straights mixed with a number of tighter, more complex sections makes Albert Park a front-tyre limited circuit.

Australia Tyres

For us, front left psi is set to 22.2 and the front right is at 22.6 psi. For rears, we’ve gone with a value of 21.9 psi.

This setup should leave you comfortable enough to handle all the lumps, bumps, straights and bends of Albert Park like a champ!
