Update: This setup has been created after the big handling patch.

Following a disappointing Las Vegas track is the mighty Qatar circuit. Lusail is one of the most flowing tracks to drive and is incredibly enjoyable. It’s a stark contrast to Las Vegas, with a much more downforce-oriented track design.

When you get into a good rhythm around Qatar, you can have an incredibly enjoyable race. The corners come at you fast, and many are medium speed and test your car’s balance and ability to maintain high minimum corner speeds.

Watch our recommended Qatar car setup video

Below is a video run-through of our Qatar car setup designed for races and career mode.


Aerodynamic setup

For my recommended aerodynamic setup, I have things set pretty high. This gives the best overall lap time during qualifying. Go with 44 on the front wing and 40 on the rear. I’ll say it now that you may want to reduce this by a few clicks when heading into a race as the AI will be running a lower downforce setup.

You can see in the race video at the start and end of our recommended car setup video that during the corner sequences, I can easily keep up with the AI with this higher downforce approach. I have run a much smaller wing gap to really ensure this setup gives you car that can be pushed hard throughout a lap.

Transmission setup

The close gap between the front and rear wings can lead to a touch of understeer at some corners, so we have countered this with our transmission setup. I have set the on throttle differential to 60% which gives you a good push out of the faster corners.

I’ve then gone with a low off throttle differential setup of 35% and a higher engine braking setup of 70%. This combination will allow the car to be a little freer under braking and rotate better into some of the corners.

Suspension geometry setup

Qatar really tests your cars ability to lean on its tyres and carry speed through a turn. Due to this I have set our geometry to the far left for all options. This gives us the largest amount of negative camber helping corner speed and the minimal toe helps to reduce drag.

Suspension setup

I have gone with a fairly aggressive approach to our suspension setup due to the corner styles at Qatar. Opt for 36 and 9 on the suspension which is actually pretty soft compared to some tracks. However, pair this with stiff anti-roll bars set to 19 and 15.

Higher anti-roll bars will improve our performance mid-corner, and at this circuit with this car setup, instability isn’t too much of an issue. Lusail is incredibly smooth mainly thanks to it being a MotoGP track for many years. This lets us run an incredibly low ride height at just 25 and 52.

Brake setup

With the brake setup, opt for 100% pressure and just 54% bias. There are a few corners where you’ll be braking and rotating the car at the same time, so a more rearward bias is preferable.

Tyre pressure setup

Finally, Lusail is incredibly tough on tyre wear. All of the corners make this track punish your tyres, much like the Spanish track does. Run almost maximum tyre pressures to try and limit the wear with just the front right pressure being lowered to 29psi.

I did mention it at the start, but this track is incredibly enjoyable and one of my favourites. This car setup allows you to push the car hard through the middle of a lap and, in some cases, challenge the AI at corners that aren’t typically overtaking spots. The downside is a slight lack of top speed, meaning you may need to use ERS strategically throughout a race.
