F1 2021 Imola Setup: Career Mode, My Team, race setup & more

The magestic circuit returns to the F1 game, but it needs a special setup to get the most out of it.

After months of waiting, F1 2021 players have finally been allowed to go racing around the magical Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferarri circuit.

Known to many as the home of the San Marino Grand Prix, the circuit acted as a replacement track in 2020, making its first appearance on the calendar since 2006.

It then returned as a late call-up in 2021, labelled catchingly as the “Formula 1 Pirelli Gran Premio Del Made In Italy E Dell’Emilia Romagna 2021” race. But we just know it as Imola.

While the terrifying circuit of the mid-90s has been tempered over time, Imola is still a fast-paced thrill ride of a circuit.

You need serious bravery and the right setup to get the best times around this track. With overtaking tricky and every corner able to bite back if you put a wheel wrong, it’s an unrelenting and utterly brilliant track that everyone should go racing on.

Aerodynamics

While Imola is a high-speed track, that doesn’t mean you can trim the wings like it’s Monza.

We’ve gone with an 8-10 setting here which will help you carry speed through the corners and keep the rear stable. This setting will give you confidence into and out of the corners, and keep you from drifting wide in Piratella and Acque Minerali.

Transmission

for this we’ve gone with 80% on-throttle differential and 55% off-throttle differential. This will give us good drive out of the corners, but without overstressing the rear tyres.

The off-throttle setting provides good rotation on the brakes, making trail braking all the more effective.

Suspension Geometry

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

We haven’t diverted from the usual setting here. Front camber is set to -2.50 and rear camber -2.00.

We’ve given ourselves a bit of extra front toe at 0.07 just to help with turn-in. Rear toe is set to 0.20.

Suspension

The key to any setup is the suspension, and you can create a lot rotation and confidence with the settings here.

We’ve put our suspension at 1-6, and the anti-roll bar at 1-6. This creates a front end that you can trust to bite into the corners and a rear that is rock solid.

To amplify that the ride height is set to 1-7.

Brakes

There are some tricky braking zones here as well as some curved ones, so having a brake setting you are comfortable with is key.

We’ve gone with 100% brake pressure and 55% brake bias. If you find you are locking up then drop the brake pressure a touch.

Tyres

We’ve set the front tyres to 24.2 psi and the rears to 23.5 psi.

If you find they are wearing a bit too fast for your liking you can lower each by a click, just be aware it will impact your peak grip.
