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

Russia is a track that is a bit like Marmite, you either love it or you hate it!

The Russian Grand Prix is a mixed bag for many Formula One fans, with most saying they don’t like it.

This is because of the often boring races it produces.

However, it can be incredibly fun to drive. Let’s take a look at what setup you should use for a great drive in Sochi!

Aerodynamics

The varied track requires a very balanced setup, as there are a number of long straights and fast corners.

Russia Aero

To achieve this we went with 3 on the front wing and 7 on the rear.

This maintained enough downforce to corner effectively and keep speed on the straights.

Transmission

An on-throttle-diff of 50% should let you accelerate hard out of the tighter corners.

Russia Transmission

For the off-throttle diff, we went with 65%.

This allows you to turn the car in hard on corner entry, letting you carry more pace through the lap.

Suspension Geometry

Due to the frequency of 90 degree turns, much like Singapore, run your camber close to max.

Russia Sus Geo

We went with values of -2.60 on the front and -1.10 on the rear.

Finally, a low toe value of 0.06 on the front and 0.20 on the rear will keep that straight-line speed.

Suspension

The fast corners will require you to be very aggressive when using the kerbs. We run a soft setup of 2 at the front and 4 on the rear.

Russia Sus

A higher anti-roll bar of 5 at the front and 9 on the rear should maintain stability when cornering quickly.

Finally, you can lower your ride height slightly to 3 on the front and 4 on the rear.

Brakes

Thanks to the hard braking zones, a higher brake pressure is needed to slow the car down.

Russia Brakes

We went with a value of 97% and a brake bias of 50%.

This bias should allow you to avoid any potential lockups.

Tyres

Tyre wear isn’t much of an issue at Russia, meaning you can run a pretty standard tyre setup.

Russia Tyres

For this, we went with a slightly lower pressure of 22.6psi on the front.

For the rears, we went with 20.3psi.
