my fastest S1, lost 2 tenths in S2 and not sure about S3, but probably very good as well

Hi. I've tried some of these setups, but I get terrible under steer no matter what I do - even when increasing down force to maximum. What am I doing wrong? I can't get anywhere near a decent time. I've played 2010 and 2011 before, so it's not as if I'm a newbie. Can anybody offer any advise, please?

Thanks.

Apparently most people are in the same boat as far as understeer in concerned, hoping its gets sorted in next patch

Hey, brand new to F1 here.

How do you setup these options for your car? Is it in the garage? I can only seem to find the "Quick Setup" option where I can only adjust top speed and downforce. I imagine there is a "Full Setup" option where I can input all of these settings.

What I'm asking is, how do you set up all of the options such as, gearbox speed, aerodynamics, and braking adjustments?

Thanks

it's when you click on to the monitor, where the lap times are. Hope that helps

1:29.407 - Best time

S1: 29.640
S2: 24.231
S3: 35.536

Generally deployed KERS in low gears immediately after turn 6, through turn 10 and through turn 16.

Sector 3 generally seems to be off the pace. I reckon turning up the fuel mix to rich and saving KERS for the third sector might bring the overall lap down to high 1:28s, but doing this consistently would be difficult.


Just what I was saying in the previous page. The third sector is quite strange. At least, you managed to do a pretty good time in S3, considering you used a Caterham. With Force India, I just can't go lower than 35.4 in S3 :(

Found this setup to be both completely free of understeer and great fun to drive! Can really throw it into corners and drive aggressively which is awesome :D Best time for me was a low 1:24, but that could be improved on slightly, only went around 3 times after all. Trying to get the best setups together for each track so keep an eye on other track threads if you like this one. Have fun racing!

Good setup. Managed a 1.27.8 on prime tyres in practice. It's a tad sensitive with oversteer but I managed to get use to it. Feel wise, it's the best setup I've found so far.

I just got this game on XBox from my gf (major surprise!!) I'm going to try all setups, then make my own and post it here.

Enjoy the understeer and to me feels like a delayed reaction to bite for the corners so turn early into em

For some reason I it seems to work with little down force. Have to cut turn 1 and stay straight over the curb for turn 2 before turning in and opening DRS

I had some mistakes as you can see in my sector times, it could be better I think. Car feels very responsive and good in thighter corners, twitchy in the straights. To my style I prefer something like this, althought this set up should fine tuned in the future.

I'll try it, probably tomorrow. I can't go below 1:27:500 in the same conditions as you (I mean, Force India, Legend AI and with no assists). Do you remember what was your time in sector 3? It's where I lose all my chances to do competitive times.

Another thing I find is, I'm off the pace in race. I can manage relatively good qualifying laps but in long runs I can't beat teams that I'm supposed to beat. I guess it's a lack of skills but... just wanted to say it XD

OK! So i've spent the last couple of weeks messing about with this, getting to grips with the game, trying out lots of setups for this race weekend, and I found this setup to be the best all-rounder for me. It makes the car easy enough to drive (concentration levels tend to dwindle around the lap 30 mark) whilst still being quick enough for qualis. I love how Codemasters have implemented proper Parc Ferme rules, making you consider whether or not you tune for qualis or race (which isn't that hard - race day setup every time, granted the AI is still shite going into turn 1... :P)

Anyway. First, here's what i'm playing with:

AI Difficulty: Professional
Aids: TC on; ABS on, gearbox auto
Race Length: Full Race Weekend; 100% race distance
Controls: PS3 gamepad

And here's the setup i'm using. It IS based on one I saw on this forum (I forget who's), so if it looks familiar, don't be surprised.

Engine:
Fuel Map: Standard
Fuel: 5 Laps

Alignment:
Camber Front: -3.40
Camber Rear: -1.20
Toe Front: 0.14
Toe Rear: 0.38

QUALIFYING:
Q1 was an absolute breeze. Engine mode standard, prime tyres, clean lap, P1. Same story with Q2, getting something like 8th place. Got Pole in Q3, albeit with option tyres, full revs, etc. I forget lap times (i'm writing this a couple of days after doing said race!)

RACE DAY

Engine mode standard, aggressive fuel strategy.

Got a good start off the line. Engine mode standard I noticed that CM have improved AI competitiveness when going into turn 1, but not by a huge amount - I still managed to pull a 1.6 second advantage over Vettel by the end of Sector 1. Pounded round the track, very slowly building my time advantage over Vettel. Tyre wear was actually quite impressive - it's a little more gradual in terms of how it affects the handling compared to 2011. I pitted on Lap 13 for some primes, with a time advantage of around 10 seconds. I could probably have taken the options to around lap 15-16 if I wanted to; they weren't in too bad condition.

Rejoined in 6th, Alonso ahead of me and Vettel (who followed me into the pits) behind. During the pit-stop, I turned my engine down to lean fuel mix - my plan was to use this next stint as my fuel-saving stint on primes. Handling was pretty good on Primes, which helped me just about stay in touch with Alonso. Given the 10-second advantage, it was simply a waiting game for everyone to jump into the pits a few laps later, and retake the lead.

Plodded along on primes with lean fuel mix all the way to lap 25. Around which time, Hamilton was behind in 2nd, and we played tit-for-tat with time advantages. He'd take a second per lap off my time for a couple of laps, i'd then add it back on for the next couple. Time advantage stayed anywhere between 8.5 seconds to a shade off 12 seconds. Pitted on lap 31 for some options with an 8.5 second advantage. Primes didn't do too badly, although the tyres were in worse condition than my old set of options were. Engine mode back to standard, rejoined in 3rd (Kobayashi JUUUUST squeezed ahead at turn 1, the bastard!). Hamilton didn't pit until around lap 38. When he did, i'd caught up to him and narrowed the gap to around 3 seconds. I then hit the track, put in some good lap times, squeezed out a good 17 second advantage over Hamilton before pitting for the final time on lap 44. Option tyres were a little knackered by this point.

Pedal to the metal time, now. All that fuel saving during the prime stint would pay off. I gave it a lap or two, to allow the option tyres to warm up, then I jacked the revs to full and caned it. I set fastest lap of the race around lap 48, humiliated Alonso into turn 2, and hunted down Hamilton, waiting for him to pit so I could have my lead back.

Then by lap 50, it dawned on me: Hamilton might actually be 2-stopping. Fffffff.........

And yep. He was. worse still, I couldn't afford the fuel to stay on rich engine mode, so that was turned down to standard by lap 52. I tried eating into his time advantage (around 6 seconds), but my tyres gave out too soon. So not only was Hamilton slowly building his advantage by a second per lap now, but Alonso - who was on the same strategy as Hamilton - was dancing all over my backside. I spent the last 5 laps abandoning my pursuit of Hamilton, and focusing on keeping second place. Problem was, for the last THREE laps, i'd noticed my fuel dipped below optimal, meaning I had to dial right down to lean.

Crossed the line some 12 seconds behind Hamilton, and 0.8 seconds ahead of Alonso. Failed the team's race objective, but hey, they can't begrudge me 2nd place in my debut race, now, can they?
