    I like this one: It's for Oulton Park but should be adaptable for Spa.

    Testing out the car quickly, I'm honestly of the opinion that to match the 2:58 time what you need isn't a setup, but driving practice. My first flying lap with the car in Free Practice with the default setup and gamepad got me a 3:00.9, and I haven't driven either the track or the car in ages. With the better grip and low fuel of Time Trial, I can easily see this time going below 3:00, the weight reduction from 45 liters to 5 liters (40 l * 0.75 kg/l=30 kg) should already help considerably in a car this light and low powered. Quick testing in Time Trial suggests that with a gamepad I'd get around 2:58.9 if I went at it, losing most time in sector 2 due to not being able to steer, brake and accelerate as accurately as I can with a wheel. The default setup is easily good enough to go under 3 minutes, it just takes a lot of smooth driving, maximizing the throttle and minimizing the braking to get there. Small things make a big difference in this car, the difference between hitting the top of Eau Rouge at 164 km/h and 166-167 km/h is about 0.2-0.3 seconds at the first sector split, just by itself.

    The setups aren't a magic silver bullet that will make you go faster instantly, not most of the time anyway. Exception would be if the car is gearing bound, or the aero is limiting the top speed too much, or if the default setup is so unstable you don't dare to drive the car. If the car is reasonably well behaved with the default, then it's best not to expect massive gains from just setup work.
