F1 2018 – Albert Park, Australia, Time-Trial Setup

Albert Park is iconic to every F1 year calendar as this is where the season begins every year. The track has a bumpy surface with six chicanes that require a precisely balanced car that can smoothly get back onto the power after exiting from a turn. The car needs to be responsive in turns and be balanced enough to not cause a spin out.

Entry to Turn 1 gives you some freedom in late braking only if your car is well positioned for an angle of attack into the apex. Turn 3 can cause grip level changes and have low visibility due to low sun angle. For Turn 4, just a little throttle lift would be enough to make the turn successful while maintaining the speed. Turn 9 is almost the same as Turn 1 but just a little tighter, plus going deep will take you left and into the gravel.

Turns 10 to 11 is a demanding section of the track that can affect the tyre condition as it is a fast left hander. Finally, in Turn 16, which is the last corner that takes you to the start/finish straight, hug the apex to get a good exit while keeping the car from going too wide as the car will tend to go left and crash into the wall.
