F1 2021 has arrived at long last, and with it a whole new challenge for racers.

With an entirely new handling model, F1 2021 requires completely new setups compared to last year.

Fortunately, we’ve been putting in the laps to find a setup that will work for you!

F1 2021 Hungary setup

The Hungaroring is often called “Monaco without walls” thanks to its narrow, twisty layout. But with the right setup this track can be an absolute joy to drive.

With flowing corners, narrow apexes, and some kerbs that will properly ruin your day, if you don’t have the right car control you will be in all kinds of trouble around the Hungaroring!

Aerodynamics

As you would expect, a track with so few straights requires a lot of aerodynamic performance.

We’ve gone with 7-11 wings. This will keep the car from pulling an Uno reverse on you through the esses and the hairpins. It might be a touch slower on the pit straight than you would like, but it will give you a car that qualifies very well.

Transmission

This part of the setup dictates how power goes through the rear wheels and into the tarmac.

We’ve gone with a 70% on-throttle differential to give you good traction out of the corners and 55% off-throttle to help rotate the car.

Suspension Geometry

Suspension geometry sets how the wheels are aligned to the body of the car.

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

Front toe gets a click of out with 0.06 being the best way forward. Rear toe is again set fully left.

Suspension

Suspension is quite a personal part of the setup, as you can use it to create understeer or oversteer depending on your own driving style.

We’ve gone with 4-6 on the suspension and 6-6 on the anti-roll bars. This keeps the car very well balanced and responsive to input without being overly sensitive. That means you can flick through the chicane without then struggling through the esses.

Ride height is set to 3-7, this will let you ride the kerbs a bit and stop the big rear wing from pushing the car into the tarmac down the straight. That said, be warned that the kerbs around Hungary can be pretty vicious. Especially on the exit of turns, 3, 7, & 11!

Brakes

While there are a few big stops in Hungary, the braking zones are pretty straight forward, allowing you to run 110% brake pressure.

Brake bias is set to 56%, which is really the minimum you can get away with in F1 2021. If you do find yourself locking up the drop the brake pressure a bit.

Tyres

Hungary can be tough on the tyres, particularly the fronts.

We’ve gone with 21.4psi on the front tyres and 23.5psi on the rears.

This should keep the front tyres alive for a full stint as long as you aren’t sliding around the track.

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