Races in Hungary are always a fun time, but rain can add an unexpected factor to the race.

The track relies massively on a perfect aero setup, especially so in the wet.

So, with the wait for F1 2021 seeming ever longer, let's take a look at what setup you should be using for a wet race in Hungary!

Aerodynamics

As we have already mentioned, the key to a wet setup in Hungary is a high aero setup.

As such, we've got a front wing of 9 and a rear wing of 11. This should maximise performance in the wet, whilst avoiding sacrificing too much top-end speed.

Hungary has earnt its name as 'Monaco without walls' for a reason, and is extremely technical.

Transmission

We've got a pretty normal wet setup for the transmission this time, unlike with the aero.

As such, we have got an on-throttle diff of 50% and an off-throttle diff of 55%.

This should help the car turn in slightly better for the tighter, more technical portions of the track.

Suspension Geometry

Here, we have an important element of the setup to maintain that straightline pace.

We've got camber of -2.60 on the front and -1.00 on the rear.

This is then paired with a toe setup of 0.06 on the front and 0.20 on the rear.

Suspension

Here we have a typical soft setup with an above normal ride height. This is to help maintain grip throughout the lap.

As such, we have softness of 1 on the front and 4 on the rear. We then have anti-roll bars of 5 on the front and 7 on the rear.

Finally, the ride height is set at 8 for the front and 10 on the rear.

Brakes

Here we have a brake pressure of 90% and a front-brake bias of 50%.

This should maintain braking performance whilst also avoiding any potential lockups.

Tyres

Finally we have our tyre pressure set low. For the front, we've gone with 21.8psi on the left and right.
