With a new handling model, updated physics, and new challenges for everyone, it has provided a steep learning curve for drivers.

This is thanks to setups having to be radically different to suit the new game. Fortunately, we've been hard at work creating stable and reliable setups for you!

The season finale is no easy task. A little dull in real life, Yas Marina comes alive in the F1 game, with plenty of overtaking chances if you get your strategy right.

This setup will let you do just that.

Aerodynamics

While the two big straights are tempting to focus on, there are far too many tricky corners to remove a lot of wing.

We've gone with 6-10 wings. This will keep the rear planted through the longer radius corners and let you carry speed through the final sector.

Transmission

This part of the setup establishes how power is pushed to the rear wheels and into the tarmac.

We've gone with 80% on-throttle differential to give good drive out of the corners.

Off-throttle is set to 55% to provide good rotation into the corners.

Suspension Geometry

This part of the setup describes how the wheels are aligned with the body of the car.

We've gone with full right on the front camber and full left on the rear.

Front toe gets a click to 0.06, and rear camber is set fully left.

Suspension

This part of the setup is the most personal, as it reacts to driving style and can create oversteer or understeer.

We've gone with 1-3 on the suspension and 6-6 on the anti-roll bars. This will keep the car alive through the corners, letting you flick through the triple chicane and get the power down mid-corner comfortably.

Ride height is set to 3-8. This stops the big rear wing pushing the car into the road and will let you ride some kerbs too.

Brakes

There aren't any tricky braking zones at Yas Marina.

As a result, we've gone with 100% brake pressure and 56% brake bias. This will give you great stopping power into the handful of overtaking spots and prevent lockups.

If you are locking up then drop the brake pressure slightly.

Tyres

Tyres are a bit different this year over F1 2020.
