The Hungaroring is an awesome track, full of twists and turns.

The complex sectors make this a very technical circuit also, so your setup is essential.

So, let's take a look at the setup you should have on to maximise your pace around the track.

Aerodynamics

The complex nature of the circuit make a high downforce setup essential.

For this, we went with a front wing value of 7 and a rear wing of 10.

If you struggle with the rear end at all you can raise the rear to 11, but you should find 7-10 feels good.

Transmission

The slow speed corners require a balanced on-throttle diff to minimise wheel spin.

We went with a value of 50%, which should keep it to a minimum.

An off-throttle diff of 60% should help keep your car stable as you weave through the middle sector.

Suspension Geometry

Tyre wear, cornering ability and straightline speed all need to be balanced with this setup.

As such, set your camber to just below max, we went with -2.60 on the front and -1.10 on the rear.

For your toe, set the values as low as they'll go, at 0.05 front and 0.20 on the rear.

Suspension

We want a primarily soft setup so we can attack the kerbs, but firm enough to throw it into the corners. For this, we went with 1 on the front and 6 on the rear.

Stiffer anti-roll bars of 6 and 9 help you get through the tight sections quickly.

And finally, a relatively average ride height of 3 and 5 should keep you fast enough throughout the lap.

Brakes

Your ideal braking setup is a very common one.

This means you will set your brake pressure to 95%, and your brake bias as 50%.

Tyres

Set your tyres very low at the front and the rear, as you need to maximise traction and minimise tyre wear.

For this, we've gone with 21.8psi on the fronts and the lowest value of 19.5psi on the rears.
