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

Austria is an incredible track, but very often home to a wet race for spectators to watch.

If you're unlucky enough to have a wet race at Austria in F1 2020 then this setup is for you.

So, as the wait for F1 2021 continues, let's take a look at what setup you should be using!


For wings, we've got a pretty normal setup of 4 on the front and 7 on the rear wing.

This should provide enough downforce to cope with the lower levels of grip around the track.

If you still struggle, we recommend increasing the rear wing to 8, however, you should be fine with it set at 7!


This is the normal setup that you will have seen on some of our other wet setups, for example at Silverstone!

We've got an on-throttle diff of 50% coupled with an off-throttle diff of 55%.

This should maintain traction throughout the lap whilst also keeping a car that has useable power in corners and on straights.

Suspension Geometry

The mixed nature of the track, with a number of extended, fast straights and a relatively complex middle sector, means we have a mixed geometry setup.

So, for the camber we've gone with -2.80 for the front and -1.30 on the rear.

With the toe, we use 0.06 on the front and 0.23 on the rear. This should maintain the driveability of the car in the corners whilst keeping straight line speed high.


For suspension, the priority is softness in an effort to maintain grip and avoid wheelspin. We've gone with 1 on the front and 2 on the rear.

For anti-roll bars we have values of 4 on the front anti-roll bar and 7 on the rear.

Finally, for ride height go with 7 on the front and 8 on the rear.


We've gone with a brake pressure of 90% and a front brake bias of 50% for our brake setup.

This is the best compromise that we could see between brake performance and avoiding lockups in the tricky conditions.


We can still run relatively high pressures here, as tyre temps are less of a worry in the wet.

This means we have 22.6psi on the front and 20.3psi on the rears.
