Straight line Speed

I have just completed my 1st season on f1 2017 with Red Bull after starting again from McLaren. I get no straight line speed even with DRS against any car even the back markers can pass me in a straight line, I understand the setup of the car with downforce on front and rear wing both of which if set to 2-2 and I'm still passed by mclarens, I've spent all my upgrade points over the season on engine parts but it seems to have made no difference.

I'd appreciate any advise!

    Have you checked your trigger/pedal is able to go to 100% input? You can see this in the option menu under controller settings

    You remember when you first came to my office? I asked you, "Do you want to be an eagle, or do you want to be a **** bird?" And you said "I want to be an eagle".
    You got to be what you say you're going to be, which you aren't.
