Following on from Spa, we have another historic Formula One track.

This time, we'll be going over the setup you should be using to stay competitive at Monza.

Let's take a look at that setup right now!

Aerodynamics

Similar to Spa, Monza requires an extremely low downforce aero setup.

For this, we've gone with 1 on the front wing and 4 on the rear.

This should maintain enough downforce to cope with the few corners on the track whilst not sacrificing too much top end speed.

Transmission

The numerous sharp corners at the end of straights make speed out of them essential. You'll want to be back on the power as early as possible.

For this, we run an on-throttle diff of 50%.

To help with initial rotation into the corner we've gone with a value of 62% off-throttle differential.

Suspension Geometry

Once again, suspension geometry is set up with maximum straight line speed prioritised.

To do this, we've gone with camber figures of -2.60 on the front and -1.10 on the rear.

For toe, we've gone as low as possible. This means 0.05 on the front and 0.20 on the rear.

Suspension

A softer setup will let your car handle the tough kerbs easily. To do this, go for a softer setup at 1 on the front and 4 on the rear.

A slightly higher anti-roll bar of 4 on the front and 7 on the rear will let you corner quickly.

For that straight-line speed, set your ride height low at 1 on the front and 3 on the rear.

Brakes

The high-speed of Monza leads to some exceptionally hard braking zones.

To help stop the car, we've gone with a brake pressure of 100%.

Given the high pressure, we need to manage lockups. To do this, we've set a brake bias value of 52%.

Tyres

Similar to Spa again, Monza doesn't affect tyre wear too much.

We can keep our front tyres at a relatively normal value of 23.0psi.

For the rears, we've gone with a tyre pressure of 19.9psi.
