Have you been finding it tricky to wrap your head around the car setups in F1 2021? While they are certainly complex, they’re also very important. A good setup can make multiple tenths worth of difference every lap, if not more! Luckily for you, there are a few easy steps you can take to get yourself kitted out with some quality setups. Take a look at the video below to find out what you need to do!

Finding Setups

There are a few easy ways to find setups which other people have made. One way is to look at the fastest lap times set at a certain track in time trial mode, and to copy the setup used by those drivers. Be careful with this, though, as some of these setups won’t work so well in longer races. There are a couple of other things to watch out for as well, which we go over in the video.

Another option for PC-based players is to look for setups on the Steam workshop. You can browse there for setups for all kinds of cars and tracks. However, anybody can upload a setup to the Steam workshop, so it’s a good idea to look for highly rated ones.

If you don’t like either of these options, you can check out our British and Hungarian Grand Prix setup guides and see how you like them. Alternatively, you can develop your own personalised setup instead!

Creating Setups

If you want to have a setup which is your very own, there are a fair few things you will have to bear in mind. You’ll need to understand how the wings, transmission, suspension, brakes and tyre pressure all affect the car’s performance. On top of this, you’ll also need to know roughly what the ballpark is, otherwise you will spend a lot of time searching in the dark. For all these tips, and more, go ahead and watch our video above!
