F1 2021 Australia Setup: Albert Park setup, My Team, Career Mode & more

F1 2021 continues to blow players away with its new handling and amazing game modes.

However, each track is now a new adventure, with setups radically changing this year and some kerbs starting to bite back in a big way.

Fortunately, we've got you covered.

Orginally moved from season-opener to the end of the Formula 1 calendar, F1's trip to Albert Park this year was eventually called off due to covid.

However, this was well after Codemasters drew their line in the sand for calendar changes, so we still get to go racing around this fast, flowing street circuit!


Albert Park may be faster than most street circuits, but that doesn't mean you can get away with low wings!

We've gone with a 7-11 setup here to keep the car planted to the tarmac as you flick through the endless chicanes.


This part of the setup determines how the power is put through the rear wheels and into the tarmac.

We've gone with 70% on-throttle differential to give you good drive out of the corners.

55% off-throttle will give you nice rotation into the corners.

Suspension Geometry

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

We've pushed front camber all the way right and rear camber all the way left.

Front toe gets a click to 0.06 and rear toe is all the way left.


This is one of the most personal parts of the car setup, as it has the biggest reaction to your driving style.

We've gone with 4-6 suspension and 6-6 anti-roll bars. This keeps the car responsive but not overly skittish when flicking through the chicanes and riding the kerbs.

Ride height is set to 3-7 so the big rear wing doesn't push the car into the ground.


With pretty straightforward braking zones you don't need to do anything fancy with the brakes here.

We've gone with 100% brake pressure for maximum stopping power and 56% brake bias to prevent rear locking.

If you are locking up regularly then drop the brake pressure down a few %.


Ideal tyres are a bit different this year.

We've gone with 21.4psi on the fronts and 23.5psi on the rears. This keeps the car gripped up through the corners and stable at the rear.

We are continually testing and updating our setups so be sure to bookmark this page and check back regularly!
