Zandvoort made a return to the game in F1 2020, and is a phenomenal track to fill the time before the release of F1 2021.

The track is even a blast in the rain, and remains incredibly fast, if a little scary.

So, let's take a look at what setup you should be using to be fast in the wet at Zandvoort!

Aerodynamics

We need a high aero setup when in the wet in order to maintain the cars driveability.

As such, we've got a front wing of 7 and a high rear wing of 10.

This should keep the rear end in check throughout the lap in these low grip conditions.

Transmission

For transmission, we've got a pretty standard wet setup that should help keep the car stable under acceleration.

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

This should also help you turn the car in on corner entry.

Suspension Geometry

Suspension geometry is a pretty standard setup again to help cope with the lack of grip thanks to the rain.

As such, we've got a camber setup of -2.60 on the front and -1.10 on the rear.

this is then paired with a toe setup of 0.06 on the front and 0.23 on the rear.

Suspension

The priority with suspension is high and soft in order to avoid the standing water on track.

As such, we have a very soft setup of 1 on the front and 3 on the rear. We have relatively firm anti-roll bars for the wet, with 5 on the front and 6 on the rear.

Finally, our ride height is at 6 on the front and 8 on the rear.

Brakes

For brakes, our priority has to be avoiding any lockups that could happen, whilst maintaining brake performance.

We've gone for a brake pressure of 88% and a front brake bias of 50%.

Tyres

Finally, our tyre setup has incredibly low pressures to maximise grip in the wet.

This means we have a front pressure of 21.4psi and a rear pressure of 19.5psi.
