How do i get better turning?

I have some problems with the turning circle on some of the tracks, especially hairpin turns like in Monaco and Canada. Where should i start tuning for better turning?

    If you play with a controller, then set the sensitivities to maximum. All steering settings on 100 except for deadzone. Now if you drive well and follow the line, then you can make turns like the hairpin on Monaco.

    higher aero never hurts. every setup section gives a pretty detailed explanation of what a higher/lower value does to your car. I recommend reading through those. Changing your controller (assumedly) settings like suggested above is another option although I play on a wheel so I’m unsure whether the post above helps in any way, you’ll have to find that out for yourself.

    In general, stiffer rear and/or softer front often helps reduce understeer by creating some oversteer.

    #NeverPreOrder. It's outrageous that consumers have to BEG game companies to simply make games that reliably function properly. Consumers do NOT buy video games to waste their recreational time doing the unpaid work of a paid professional tester. It's nonsense to imply game companies have no obligation to deliver games of consistently reliable function quality just because "it's not easy & nothing is perfect & you can't please everybody." Company decision-makers listen to consumer spending, not consumer feedback - they don't care if it works properly as long as it sells enough, and every purchase is a vote of approval that helps fund more of the same. #VoteWithYourWallet

    Low speed hairpin corners = softer springs and high front antiroll bar to create more mechanical grip, as aero will not work in slow corners.

    If the car isn't turning because you're not getting full lock with your wheel/controller, that's a setup issue. (or maybe a bug)

    set camber to max (the words, not the numbers) will give more grip in corners.
    move toe in to the right for fronts . will help the car turn in better. careful too much will have u over-steering like a ****

    someone needs to point out to codies max camber is actually -3.5..... and -2.5 is the min
    MAX camber = more traction in corners. (hungary / monaco)
    MIN camber = more traction on straights. (monza)

    yes even tho mathematically -3 is smaller than -2... its talking about the angle the tyre sits at compared to the road
    these lines represent the cars tyres ----->  /-o-\   = maximum or -3.5
    ---------------> |-o-|  = minimum or -2.5
