    • First post here. New-ish to the Codemasters F1 games and starting off with F1 2016. So far, very impressed. I've been trying setups here for the last few weeks and they have been very helpful.  Based on my limited knowledge of F1 cars, I've been able to get a setup that worked well for me. With this one, I wasn't chasing outright speed but trying to balance pace with tyre deg. It worked great for me to the point where I was able to get a purple score in the tyre wear program and the wear was more or less even on the tires. Hopefully it helps.  The idea here was to combat the sustained cornering you experience at this circuit. To do this, I wanted to get the transmission of power right so as the wheels would get maximum traction without locking up hence, a locked differential made sense. It would allow the two wheels to rotate at the same speed. I could have gone with a higher level for transmission off throttle and that would have helped with S2. The other thing I focused on was the camber angle and suspension. I kept the suspension close to neutral and gave it a decent camber to maximize the contact patch during the corners. This would aid both with speed and tire wear. It sort of worked, S2 still wasn't quite there but I think I could tweak it to go faster.   apologies for the botched copy paste from James' original post. On my phone so not as easy to format. Team
