F1 2020 Japan Grand Prix Wet Setup: Aerodynamics, Transmission & more!

The wait for F1 2021 continues, but that doesn't stop us from sinking hours into F1 2020.

So, this time we thought we'd make a wet setup for a track that very often features some torrential rain.

Without further ado, let's jump into what setup you should be using for wet races at Suzuka!


For aerodynamics, we're using a setup of 6 on the front wing and 8 on the rear wing.

This should maintain enough downforce throughout the lap to keep the car stuck to the track.

Obviously, you can increase the rear wing if you feel the need to, but 6 and 8 should be perfect.


For transmission we've got a slightly different setup compared to the other wet setups that we've done before.

For starters, we've gone with the usual 50% on-throttle differential.

However, for off-throttle we've got a slightly higher value of 60% to help you rotate the car easier in the windy sections of the track.

Suspension Geometry

Camber is a relatively standard Japan setup to allow for the high-speed corners.

We've got camber values of -2.70 on the front and -1.00 for the rears.

We also have a toe of 0.07 on the front and 0.20 on the rear. This should help you achieve those high cornering speeds, even in the wet.


The softer and higher ride height setups are synonymous with wet conditions on track.

In Japan, we use a front suspension value of 2 and a rear of 4. We also use anti-roll bars of 5 on the front and 8 on the rear.

Finally, we have our ride height set at 8 for the front and 9 on the rear.


This is almost identical to most of our brake setups for racing in the wet, however, slightly changed.

For brake pressure, we've got 88% and for front brake bias, we have 52%. This should help avoid any in the rain lockups!


We've run much lower pressures this time to get as much grip as we can out of the tyres.

For the front, we have 21.4psi and on the rears we have a pressure of 19.5 psi.
