F1 2021 Brazilian GP Setup Tips (Wet and Dry)

Aerodynamics

Dry Lap


  • Front Wing Aero: 7
  • Rear Wing Aero: 7

Wet Lap

  • Front Wing Aero: 7           
  • Rear Wing Aero: 7

You are probably looking at our wing levels and wondering why they’re both the same. Well, the truth is that you need a bit of downforce in Brazil. Most of this track requires downforce, even if a bit of power is lost down the straights.

Sector 2 might not be the best place for overtaking, but you won’t get close to anyone to try an overtake unless you have the proper aero levels in the first place. In the end, you’ll find that a balanced aero setup works very well around this circuit in F1 2021.


Transmission

Dry Lap

  • Differential On Throttle: 70%
  • Differential Off Throttle: 60%

Wet Lap

  • Differential On Throttle: 70%
  • Differential Off Throttle: 55%

Brazil is a mix of fast, slow, and medium-speed corners, but there are more slow-to-medium-speed corners than high-speed corners. Our transmission setup reflects this a bit, but we have slightly tweaked the off-throttle settings for the wet to compensate for those slippery conditions.

It is absolutely vital that you get the right levels of traction in the middle section, or you will either spin up the rears and swing around or just not have the out-and-out grip needed from the track’s surface.

Suspension Geometry

Dry Lap

  • Front Camber: -2.60
  • Rear Camber: -1.60
  • Front Toe: 0.06
  • Rear Toe: 0.32

Wet Lap

  • Front Camber: -3.00
  • Rear Camber: -1.50
  • Front Toe: 0.06
  • Rear Toe: 0.32

You want a car in Brazil that will get through the corners cleanly and not eat up the tyres. We could arguably go much more aggressive with some of the setup figures in this part of the car, but as can be seen in real life, Interlagos can be an absolute killer when it comes to the tyres. So, the last thing that you want to do is play chicken with them, making it best to be more conservative with these setup components in F1 2021.

Suspension

Dry Lap

  • Front Suspension: 2
  • Rear Suspension: 4
  • Front Anti-Roll Bar: 3
  • Rear Anti-Roll Bar: 6
  • Front Ride Height: 4
  • Rear Ride Height: 7

Wet Lap

  • Front Suspension: 2
  • Rear Suspension: 4
  • Front Anti-Roll Bar: 3
  • Rear Anti-Roll Bar: 6
  • Front Ride Height: 4
  • Rear Ride Height: 6

Suspension is a part of the setup that is a bit more down to you, the driver, rather than the track itself. Some prefer a car with a bit of understeer, while others want lots to wrangle? It’s really quite tricky to judge what is best, but we think that our setup gives a nicely balanced car on a track that is quite tricky.

Given some of the kerbs, the ride height that we have got should allow you to attack them quite nicely and not spin around. Just be careful on those kerbs in the Senna Esses and penultimate corner.

Brakes

Dry Lap

  • Brake Pressure: 100%
  • Front Brake Bias: 54%

Wet Lap

  • Brake Pressure: 100%
  • Front Brake Bias: 55%

This is the preferred brake pressure and front brake bias setup for most racing in F1 2021. It helps to stave off the main issue, lock-ups, while giving you ample control when competing in the Brazilian Grand Prix.

Tyres

Dry Lap

  • Front Right Tyre Pressure: 23.0 psi
  • Front Left Tyre Pressure: 23.0  psi
  • Rear Right Tyre Pressure: 22.3 psi
  • Rear Left Tyre Pressure: 22.3 psi

Wet Lap

  • Front Right Tyre Pressure: 23.0 psi
  • Front Left Tyre Pressure: 23.0  psi
  • Rear Right Tyre Pressure: 21.9 psi
  • Rear Left Tyre Pressure: 21.9 psi

Whilst we have increased tyre pressures for Brazil, we haven’t gone quite as high as you could get away with in F1 2021. You can risk the tyre temperatures going through the roof or just play it safe. For us, we’d rather take the safe route as it just isn’t worth the potential disadvantage when it comes to tyre wear.

So, that’s everything that you need to know to get the most out of your car setup at the Brazilian GP in F1 2021.
