We've gone with a front wing value of 3 and a rear wing of 4.

This should keep your top speed high enough for that sweeping final straight, and maintain enough downforce to be competitive in the corners.

Transmission

Due to the aero setup, we may need a bit more help in the middle and final sector of the lap.

To do this, set your on-throttle diff at 50% and your off-throttle value to 55%.

This should help the car rotate more easily on some of the tighter corners on the circuit.

Suspension Geometry

We've gone with the normal balance for our suspension geometry to ensure a balanced car throughout the lap.

Go with 2 on the front and 4 on the rear for firmness, coupled with anti-roll bars of 4 on the front and 9 on the rear.

Finally, set your front ride height to 3 and your rear ride height to 4.

We've gone with 95% brake pressure and 50% brake bias.

This ensure as few lockups as possible whilst not sacrificing any stopping ability.

Tyres

The front right takes a bit of a beating here, so set its pressure to 21.4psi and front left to 21.8psi.
