Managed a 1:40.237 with option tyres...but before lowest i got was 1:40.072 with Prime tyres...restarted that session to see if i can go under with Option tyres but couldn't...
The times i did, i did without using DRS...will try in a few and see if i can do better.

Edit: Did a 1:39.913 with no DRS used...

Later Edit: Took 2nd place in the race with the setup after starting from 10th (wet qualification)...got overtaken in the pits :/

yeah, this works for lotus...force india is a bit heavy and needs more wing and more oversteer, when i tested the monaco setup of lotus on a force india, i was hitting the walls a lot...so that shows again that not all the cars are the same and that not all setups that work great on a car, will work the same on another car...

Many thanks for your replies, guys. U r all welcome. But now I should test my own setups with patch 1.2. So we'll see how it changed car handling. I'll post my times for each track and bring changes to setups if it will be necessary. :D

Practice: MIX 2,
Prime - 1.37.483
Option - 1.35.579
Could have been better, but didn't push very hard.

Qualy: MIX 3
Prime - 1.36.097

Race:
Prime mix 2 - 1.37.666
Option mix 3 - 1.35.834

NOTES:
I qualified 7th with 0.409 drop, but my time in quali could have been better, got 0.2 improve in 1st sector, although I screwed up turn 12...
In race - I got 2nd after 4/5 corner, then on lap 3 I overtook Vettel and got the lead. Lap 7 - pitstop, a bit early, because Primes were in nice shape, but OPT ended very, very bad. Return - 2nd after Sutil, with 3s lead on Vettel. I got my best OPT time on lap 9, then on 10 and 11 could improve it, but on 10 i had to overtake slow cars which interrupted my pace, then, 11 (final lap) i spinned, again on corner 12/13 and finished first with only 2 sec lead on Button.

In my opinion - car felt very stable and confident. As long as I stayed away from kerbs it was invincible. It wasn't however my best setup, but it did the job. Person to blame for quite high times is the one writing this post :D. Will try to do better next season.

Came looking on here as im trying to squeeze more out of my setp for our league race, and low and behold not found anything new or amazing.

So just to add to the mix here's mine, im using the MSWHEEL on 360. (i found wheel n pad setups dont always translate that well, steering lock on wheel far more easier to yank the car round)

No Race Line/ Manual Gears/ no auto Brake / no pit assit.

TC & ABS ON
TV Pod Cam

Car
Mercedes

Race Type
1plyr GP Mode or Online Qualy

Aerodynamics
Front Wing Angle: 10
Rear Wing Angle: 8 (makes the back more twitchy how i like it - over steer)

Braking
Balance: F 52% - R 48%
(you could try switching this round to the rear, but that will only give MORE oversteer into turn in's. where as front braking will give you more understeer, try running a defualt setup with 60% front brake then try reverse 60% rear. have a few laps liek this on each and you will see what im talking about, NOTE brake distances will INCRAESE either way, you want to stop on a dime! leave it as 50/50%

Pressure: Medium (found high preasure on here not good for just blipping the brake, car lurches about)
Brake Size: Standard

Balance
Front Anti-Roll Bar: 6
Rear Anti-Roll Bar: 6
(this you can alter for race for tyre ware, but found the 6/6 behaves nicely and i dont notice a big differnce in turn in and corner exit.)


Suspension
Front Ride Height: 2 (only as i noticed i was bottoming out on the straights)
Rear Ride Height: 2
Front Spring Stiffness: 7
Rear Spring Stiffness: 6 ( softer rear spring allows the tyres to bite into the track quicker than the front, and less tyre ware)

Gearbox
Default Gear Ratios ( i have played about with the gears these are preference to you, but i found the default to be as good)

Engine
4laps fuel, outlap on LEAN, 2 hot laps on Rich (2nd hotlap almost running on fumes),
<try to short shift on the outlap and keep the gears high and dont brake too much, should be able to get round to the flying laps with 98% tyre ware remaining, as opposed to gunning it even on Lean and getting round to the hotlaps and tyres on 95% <tried this and pitted to see tyre damage,PS if you're in GP mode do FLYING lap as this uses 1% tyre ware, as opposed to you drivning round manually again tested this to see difference>

Alignment
Camber Front: -3.20
amber Rear: Default (scrubbing the tyres by running negative camber might help for a lap or two in max grip but wont help the tyre bite on the straight and also will scrub you rears alot faster)
Toe Front: 0.09 (TOE OUT give the front tyres little bit more acceleration on the straights)
Toe Rear: Defualt (why you would EVER move Rear toe in or out is beyond me! it would never be done on a race car!, plus this saves the rear's from scrubbing so much)

Tyres
Options

Notes
Surprisingly the defualt setup on this track can yeild some god ties if no one has chanced it yet, try it!, lower ride height first and work form there, but just do that to begin with and see it's a good balance.

1st hotlap = 1:33:899
2nd hotlap = 1:32:989

there's maybe another 0.500 to be gained here, however one of our drivers RandyMcScrandy is getting 31.5s :-( Grrr son of a !! (and none of us use the 11/11 AR & 11/11 Springs)

Well i understand your skepticism, however this setup does work for me with the Ferrari. I'll also point out that others whom I have talked to on other forums like the setup. It may not work for you. Thanks for your input.

Registered just to quote how awesome this setup is, it was like driving on a rail for most parts of the track. Took a little bit of time to get used to the sensitive steering/oversteer, but it absolutely killed it.

1:37.600 (prime tyre, fuel 2 - any other improvements need to be on my part :>)

About as fast as I can go with my skill level.

1:36.841 in Qualification with Option/Fuel 3/Toro Rosso. (using qwertyjohns setup).

Vettel just knocked me off 1st Qualification the bastard. (Moved up to legendary a few races ago, bloody hard but I'll keep pushing, thanks so much for the setups everyone).
