Canada is a phenomenal track in the Formula One calendar, and one we can't wait to race in F1 2021!

However, it can be a handful in the wet, owing to the incredibly high speeds.

So, let's deal with that now and get a setup ready for you to use in the wet!

Aerodynamics

For aerodynamics, we've gone with a slightly higher than dry setup to account for the lack of grip.

This means we have 4 on the front wing and 8 on the rear wing.

This is the best compromise that we found between speed for the straights and grip.

Transmission

For transmission we've returned to the standard wet setup for Canada.

This means we have an on-throttle differential figure of 50% and an off-throttle of 55%.

This should let you rotate easily in the few sharp corners that there are and keep the traction for those fast straights.

Suspension Geometry

We have a pretty normal suspension geometry setup this time, especially given the tracks high speed.

To start with, we have camber values of -2.80 on the front and -1.10 on the rear.

Then for toe, we have low values of 0.06 degrees on the front and 0.20 on the rear.

Suspension

We've gone with a high and soft loadout to maximise our grip. Firstly, we have our softness set at 1 on the front and 2 on the rear.

Next, we have our anti-roll bars at 4 on the front and 8 on the rear one.

Finally, we have our ride height high at 7 on the front and 9 on the rear.

Brakes

For brakes we have a standard setup to maintain brake performance and avoid lockups.
