The Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in Canada is a free flowing, fast paced circuit with a variety of medium speed chicanes and flowing segments. One of the most important setup elements to get right around Canada is your braking stability, as there are many hard braking zones. Almost every corner on this track comes off the back of a hard braking zone, with many of these corners being possible overtaking spots.
You will need to focus your driving on getting good exits from each corner and maintaining a high mid corner speed. These two elements are key to a quick lap time around the Canadian F1 circuit in F1 2019.
Ensuring you don’t spin your tyres on corner exit is crucial if you want to be looking forward and making overtaking moves. If you can’t master your corner exit you will be under pressure the whole race from other drivers.
Canada in F1 2019 is a relatively low aerodynamic circuit. The long straights ensure you can’t run too much downforce otherwise you’ll be a sitting duck as other cars pass you. Ensuring you have enough downforce through the quick corners is as crucial as setting your differential low enough to avoid wheel spin.
There isn’t too much pressure on your tyres around this circuit so running an aggressive suspension setup is possible. By going aggressive you will have maximum grip and stability through the sweeping corners. Whilst running aggressive camber and toe you should compensate by running a soft suspension setup. This will allow you to attack the apexes and ride the kerbs through the middle of the corners. This is a key technique to master to improve your lap time around Canada.
As well as choosing the optimum setup for this track, the key to fast lap times around Canada is mastering your braking and being aggressive when attacking each corner. Ensure you ride the kerbs as much as you can to shorten the corner distance and keep your mid corner speed as high as possible.
