F1 2020 Singapore Grand Prix Setup: Aerodynamics, Transmission & more!
Singapore is an incredibly difficult track, where the perfect setup is essential for a good placement!
The Singapore Grand Prix is the first street race in Asia, and an exciting night race.
With tight corners and long straights, the track is incredibly unforgiving.
Let’s take a look at the setup you should be using now!
For wings, we want to maximise our downforce to deal with the tight corners.
This means setting our front wing at 9 and rear wing at 11.
This should leave the car feeling planted at all times throughout your race.
Given the number of 90 degree corners on track, we need to maximise speed out of the slow sections.
For this, set your on-throttle diff at 50%. This should help you minimise wheelspin out of the corners.
Your off-throttle diff should be at 58% as this will allow you to rotate the car more as you enter a corner.
We need to make efforts to maximise our cornering ability at Singapore whilst maintaining straight line speed.
This means that your camber should bet set to almost its maximum, at -2.60 on the front and -1.10 on the rear.
For that straight-line speed, we need to ensure our toe is low. We went for 0.06 on the front and 0.20 on the rear.
You should go for a mixed soft setup, with 1 at the front letting you hit the kerbs aggressively, while an average 5 at the rear should maintain stability.
Set your roll bars to 5 and 7, this should help firm up the car for those tight corners.
Finally, a low ride height of 2 and 3 will maximise that straight-line speed.
The brakes are essential at a track with so many 90 degree corners.
We went with a value of 90% brake pressure to help avoid overheating and lockups.
Similarly, a brake bias of 52% should help manage any potential lockups also.
The main objective with the tyres is to limit wear and keep them as cool as we can (within reason, of course).
For this, we’ve lowered our pressures all the way around. We’ve gone for 22.6psi on the front.
For the rears, we’ve dropped the figure to 19.9psi.
