How can I reduce tyre consumption with setup?

Recommended Posts

Reduce wing angle, soften suspension, ballast to rear.  Basically you want to set the car to oversteer rather than understeer.  If all else fails then change compounds.  The setups really don't have as big of an impact as you might think. In fact, the best remedy to save tires is to adjust your driving style.

Reduce tyre pressures and also lower the differentials. However, this only works against the ai. In MP, you need raw pace and some of it. Another tip is breaking earlier and trying to get the best exit rather than taking the corner at full speed.

Smoother driver inputs (steering, throttle and braking), avoid wheel spin or lock, slower corner speeds or less steering angle, more efficient use of the tyre's contact patch via setup adjustments (camber, toe, differential, ARB, torsion bars, pressures, etc).

I will go over all this in my F1 2016 setup guide.
