Question, The only thing I'm certain of when setting up in the wet is the tires. In the dry I can be competitive. But when it's raining I cannot for the life of me set up my car to be competitive. Could it be that I'm worse than Massa in the rain? Don't get me wrong, Massa is very very good. But average in the wet. I know his frustration.
Also, this game has given me an appreciation for setting up the car. I used to hate it. I just wanted to drive. This makes the game much more immersive.

I have found it hard to be more competitive with ai when its raining but mostly only in light rain when its raining heavily it is easy, just to get used to driving in the wet do time trilas in the wet and you wil master it. I agree Massa is no Schumi in the wet but at times this year Massa looked really good especially at the start where he won a few races and he took a lot of pole positions, it was a shame he was unlucky this year.:( Sorry for the off topic

I'm a Ferrari fan, so you could talk Massa all day.:) He'll give Kimi a run this season for sure. Back to the game. You're spot on with the "light rain" theory. Eventually, I'll get together with someone to learn ALL of the setup jargon. Rebound damping, ride height, ect. I know what some mean, but not well enough. I'll get there eventually.

generally in the rain you want more wing and the car to be setup with a higher ride height. Also you need to be much smoother, if your using the controller you just have to learn to be very light with your thumbs. Give yourself more distance to brake and carry the speed through the corner rather than into it. Sadly the rain dynamics are not that realistic, for instance in a real car you would race a line round the outside of the track insteas of aiming for the apex and taking the shortest line. However this makes no differance in the game.

I noticed that too. I was disappointed to see that the AI could still drive the same line wet or dry. Using the rumble strips in the wet is a strange feeling.

Thanks for the wing and ride height tip. So lets say I'm at Bahrain. Would my ride height be around 13-14? Next I have to learn about damping. I understand what it is. Just not sure if higher setting is stiffer, or more loose.

Lastly, I tried to play GT5 Prologue a few minutes ago. I drove like crap. Was really funny trying to drive after playing F1CE.

Use R2 for throttle and L2 for brake.
If you want a faster car, go to Car Setup when in a practice or qualifying session. Then go to 'Speed' and change the downforce type to speed. This will give a higher acceleration rate so you can hit 200+ MPH, at the cost of less grip. You can also tweak the gears to give the car higher acceleration with a lower top speed, or a faster speed with slower acceleration. I find this setup helpful for gears. It gives good acceleration, while it also allows you to hit 200 MPH. It works well on most tracks.

Gear 1: 19.8
Gear 2: 15.4
Gear 3: 12.9
Gear 4: 10.8
Gear 5: 8.9
Gear 6: 7.6
Gear 7: 7.0
