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

Monaco is arguably the most iconic track of the Formula One calendar, and not just because of its location.

The race has seen some truly jaw-dropping moments in its time, and we're sure there will be many more.

However, you're here for a setup guide to help you win more races, so let's take a look at that!


Obviously, Monaco is an incredibly tight street circuit with many sharp corners.

However, you want to stay away from maxing your downforce in order to keep some straight line speed.

To that end, we've gone with 8 front wing and 10 on the rear wing.


Transmission settings for the differential are all about maximising traction on the tight circuit.

For this, we recommend an on-throttle diff of 50% to help gain this traction.

The off-throttle diff is set at 60%, as this will allow for some more precise cornering in the tight hairpins.

Suspension Geometry

For suspension geometry, our sole aim is to keep the car on it's toes and responsive.

We've gone with a front camber of -2.70 and a rear camber of -1.20.

For toe, we went with 0.06 and 0.26. This helps maintain traction for the straights and through the corners.


The suspension should be soft, letting you attack corners aggressively and ride the kerbs. As such, go with 1 on the front and 4 on the rear.

Anti-roll bars are set at 5 for the front and 9 on the rear, this should help keep the car responsive.

Ride height is at 2 and 5. This should avoid issues with the uneven road surface, but if you struggle, feel free to go to 3 and 6.


The lower brake pressure value of 88% should help you stop in-time whilst avoiding lockups.

Similarly, the brake bias is neutral at 50%.

This should help stop that pesky front right from locking up also.


For pressures, keep your tyres relatively low.

For us, this means a front right value of 23.0 psi and front left of 22.6 psi.

With the rears, we've gone with 20.7 psi.
