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

The Circuit of The Americas is a nice blend of best bits from the Formula One calendar.

This makes the track a wonder to drive, with many corners almost carbon copies of those in other tracks.

So, now let's take a look at the setup you should be using for the best results!


The mix of S's and long straights make the right wing setup essential.

For this, we've gone with 4 on the front and 7 on the rear.

This should make sure that you can turn in aggressively in the first sector, whilst maintaining straight-line speed for the straights.


To ensure the car is stable when accelerating, keep a relatively low on- and off-throttle diff.

We went with 50% on-throttle and 58% off-throttle.

This should also help rotate the car into the tighter corners on the track.

For camber, we can prioritise the first sector where the corners are flowing but relatively tight.

As such, we went with a high camber of -2.80 degrees on the front and -1.20 on the rear.

The to is designed to help with straight-line speed for this track, we feel that 0.07 on the front worked best for us and 0.20 on the rear.


You need to find a balance of tyre wear and maintaining a responsive car. We did this by lowering the firmness to 2 on the front and 4 on the rear.

For anti-roll bars, we've gone with 4 on the front and 9 on the rear. This should keep the car stable mid-corner.

Finally, we lowered our ride height to 2 and 4, keeping the straight-line speed high.


The brake setup is a fairly common on.

We've gone with a brake pressure of 95% and a brake bias of 50%.

This should help make sure that you avoid any potential lockups whilst ensuring that you can brake late at the end of the long straights.


The track is not forgiving at all when it comes to tyre wear and temperatures.

To combat this, we've gone with lower pressures. We have 21.8psi at the front.

For the rears, we've gone with a pressure of 19.5psi.
