F1 2020 Austria Grand Prix Setup: Aerodynamics, Transmission & more!

After this year's F1 2020 season, we've seen a lot of Austria.

As a nice and smooth, well-flowing track, it's a fan-favourite on the calendar.

Anyway, you're here for a blistering setup, so let's go over that now.


Austria is a relatively high pace track, and that's reflected in the lap times.

As such, we don't need that much downforce around the track.

For our front wing, we've got a value of 2, and the rear wing is set to 5.


Austria is a mixed bag of hard braking zones after longer, high-pace sections.

As such, we've gone for an on-throttle diff value of 50% to help avoid wheel spin.

The track is relatively smooth with no harsh corners, so stability isn't too much of an issue. Run an off-throttle diff of 60%.

We've gone for a pretty standard camber setup of -2.90 on the front and -1.90 on the rear.

We then coupled this with a low toe value of 0.06 on the front and 0.23 on the rear.

This should help manage the straight-line speed whilst retaining maneuverability.


Once again, Austria is another track with rather harsh kerbs. As such, a soft setup of 2 on the front and 3 on the rear is needed.

For anti-roll bars, stay stiff at 5 on the front and 9 on the rear, as this should allow you to keep better control of the car through some of the faster corners.

Thankfully, the track is quite smooth, so a ride height of 2 on the front and 4 on the rear is perfect.


Once again, you'll be at risk of locking up around Austria.

As such, we've gone with a brake pressure of 95%, and a bias of close to 50% in order to combat this.


Finally, you should be looking to ensure the tyre wear on you front left is minimal.

We went with 23.0psi on the front right and 22.6psi on the front left.

For the rears, we went with a figure of 20.7psi.
