Baku is one hell of a street circuit with some awesome, and fast, sectors.

However, as with most street circuits, the possibility of rain is always a terrifying one.

So, should you end up with a wet race in Azerbaijan, here is the setup you should be using!

Aerodynamics

For wet weather conditions, we often have to run a higher aero setup to prepare for the low levels of grip.

As such, we've gone with front wing of 2 and a rear wing of 7.

Should you struggle somewhat with this setup, you can increase your wings to 5 on the front and 8 on the rear.

Transmission

Once again, we have a rather standard transmission setup for racing in the wet.

As such, we have our on-throttle diff set at 50% and our off-throttle diff set at 55%.

This should help maintain the car's driveability throughout the lap, and the car's rotation in the sharper corners.

Suspension Geometry

Baku is a tight street circuit with a number of incredibly fast straights.

As such, we've got an aggressive camber setup of -2.70 on the front and -1.20 on the rear.

This paired with a toe setup of 0.06 on the front and 0.20 on the rear. This should keep your speed in a straight line.

Suspension

We once again have a focus on a soft setup with a higher than normal ride height. We've gone for 1 on the front and 3 on the rear for softness.

Next we have anti-roll bars of 4 on the front and 7 on the rear.

Finally, our ride height is set at 7 on the front and 9 on the rear.

Brakes

We've gone for a standard wet brake setup, although with a slightly different front brake bias.
