At least for the McLaren the default setup is a good point to start, i only adjusted tire pressures and added a click of rear wing and i'm currently doing low 1.18s (I don't know if that is fast or not because i don't have any reference until now)

I tried my own set up - cant remember what I changed as was around 1:19. Guess its just a bit of practice in the night. Car just does feel like it has any front end grip. Should be fun though

I haven't tried the McLaren yet but the Mercedes seems quite well balanced,managing to get in the 1.18 pretty constantly

Yeah default setup is well balanced in the F1. Only adjusted tyre pressure, LSD and rear sway bar. Adjusted it to my personnal preference. My biggest struggle is brake balance/pressure and not crashing while tyres and brakes are cold. What should be the optimal temperature for GT1 brakes? Are they made of steel or carbon? They seem to bite and heat a lot...

It may be worth you lowering the brake pressures and move the bias forwards. try adjusting the pressures lower if you locking up, you will obviously have to brake a bit earlier but you wont lock up as much.

Small tweaks normally does the job with the brakes. I will be on tonight to do some practice so if your on il see if i can help you out.

Ok! :) unfortunately I won't have time tonight but thank you for proposing your help :) I still lock up easily with 78% pressure which sounds super low to me...
