The Algarve track is a beautiful rollercoaster of a circuit. Full of elevation changes, mid-speed corners, and only a few overtaking spots for the truly brave.

While it feels similar to Imola or Spain, the setup required is quite different.

Aerodynamics

The Portuguese track is almost all corners, but that doesn't mean you need to pile the wing on.

We've gone for 18-24 wings around Portimao. It will give you enough stability to get through the corners and cope with the hills. It should also keep you competitive down the pit straight to lineup an overtake.

Transmission

This part of the setup describes how that 1,000 bhp that sits behind you gets pushed through the rear tyres.

The 60% on-throttle differential gives you some more rear performance on corner-exits without risking the back end overtaking you.

The 50% off-throttle differential gives you good rotation coming into corners.

Suspension geometry

As always, we've gone with the usual meta for suspension geometry.

That means -2.50 on the front camber and -1.00 on the rear, along with 0.05 on the front toe and 0.20 on the rear toe.

Suspension

This part of the setup is very personal, but these settings will give you a responsive and stable car.

The 1-3 suspension and 1-6 anti-roll bars create a car that doesn't snap or slide on you as long as you aren't pushing too hard on your steering and throttle inputs. Portimao is all about smoothness, and this setup rewards that.

The ride height of 6-5 restores some of the rear stability we've lost from the tyre pressures as well as letting you ride some kerbs on corner exits.

Brakes

As ever, you want maximum stopping power where possible.

We're using 100% brake pressure and 50% brake bias for this setup.

If you are starting to get some locking up then just drop the pressure by a few points. However, you shouldn't really need to, there aren't many brutal braking zones here.
