Zandvoort is an incredibly fast track. In fact, many liken the track to a roller coaster given the speed of some of the sectors.

For this, you need a consistent setup with minimal tyre wear that maintains enough pace.

Thankfully, we've got you covered with this guide. So, let's jump straight into our best setup for Zandvoort on F1 2020!

Aerodynamics

We found that a higher aero setup yielded the best results, especially when compared with a low drag option.

As such, we went for wings of 6-9, 6 for the front and 9 on the rear.

This helped maintain enough pace through the intricate yet fast portions of the track, whilst also keeping pace high enough for the straight.

Transmission

For Transmission, we've gone with figures of 50% on-throttle diff and 58% off-throttle.

Firstly, this allows your car to maintain stability out of the few slower corners seen on the track.

Secondly, you should be able to keep control of the car far easier with an off-throttle figure of 58%, as this keeps the car responsive when in said corners.

Suspension Geometry

Given the long, fast corners, it's important to maintain a balance between flat out speed and cornering ability.

As such, we found that for camber, a front camber of -2.60 and a rear camber of -1.10 worked best.

For toe, we've gone with lower figures of 0.06 on front, and 0.26 on the rears.

Suspension

Given the surface of the track, and the numerous elevation changes, you'll want a soft suspension setup.

1 on the front and 3 on the rear should help you deal with the bumps.

In order to maintain a sharp cornering ability, use anti-roll bars of 6 on the front and 7 on the rear.

Finally, we went with a ride height of 2-4, 2 up front, and 4 for the rear.

Brakes

The setup for brakes is balanced one, and has to account for the harsh braking zones.

We've gone with a higher brake pressure of 95%, which should help you manage at the end of those fast corners.

We balanced this with a rearward brake bias of 52%, which should help keep lock-ups to a minimum.

Tyres

To account for the bumpy surface slightly more, we've gone with a low-pressure setup.

For the fronts, a figure of 21.8psi suited the car best.

And for the rear, we went all the way to 19.5psi, which also helps maintain some tyre life and keeps the tyres from overheating.
