F1 2021 has been exciting fans everywhere since its release with new challenges and fresh opportunities for racing glory.

It's not an easy game though, as new handling models from last year have changed the way the car behaves and how you should setup the car.

Monza has always been about stripping the wings off to maximise the long straights and just survive the rest of the lap.

F1 2021's lower downforce makes it much harder to get through the Lesmos or Parabolica with a super-skinny rear wing.

Aerodynamics

Yep that's right, we've gone with much higher wings than you would think!

The 4-7 setting might be a surprise, but given the long radius of Parabolica, the fast sweeps of the Lesmos, and the always-tricky Ascari exit it's necessary.

Reduce it as you get comfortable, but be ready to carry less speed through the major corners.

Transmission

With so many traction zones we need to get good performance out of the rear tyres without killing them too quickly.

We've gone with 70% on-throttle differential to provide good push out of the corners.

55% off-throttle will allow for good rotation going into the corners too.

Suspension Geometry

Suspension geometry is pretty standard here.

We've gone for fully right on the front camber and fully left on the rear camber.

Front toe gets a click at 0.06, while rear toe is fully left.

Suspension

We can create a lot of different things with the suspension, which is why its the most personal part of the setup.

We get ourselves a lot of stability and predictable rotation here with 1-5 on the suspension and 1-7 in the anti-roll bars.

Ride height is set to 2-7. This gives some space to ride kerbs and allows that rear wing the space to push the car down without bottoming out.

Brakes

We need a lot of stopping power for Monza.

F1 2021 Italy setup brakes

We've set the brake pressure to 100% and the brake bias to 56%. This will give you the shortest stopping distance possible into the two chicanes, giving you great chances to make an overtake.

Tyres

Tyres are set to a pretty normal level for F1 2021.

The fronts are set to 21.8psi and the rears are 22.7psi. This won't overheat them and gets good performance from the Pirelli P-Zeros.
