I dont have experience in the Z4 but what i think is that you brake most of the times to early and some lines you take are not the most efficiënt. Maybe you should do a time trial and select a few Z4 cars that are a bit faster so you can compare the lines they are taking.
Also i think you need more acceleration lock and less deceleration lock and increase traction control slip to max.

Also maybe little tip if you are not doing it yet. Try practice braking hard at first and decrease brake pressure to the start of the corner.

Increase acc lock and TC makes the car's back wheel spinning a lot out of corners, i can't increase acc lock more than 15%. And can't increase TC more than 8% , otherwise I just spin the car when out of corner.

You mentioned I brake too early, I managed to change some setting in Monza that allow me to brake later, which is stiffen front sway bar and front spring rate. But when I changed that, it seems doesn't really work on this track I wonder what else can I do to the damper that aim better for braking?

Do you use wheel and pedals ? If not you probably should be more gentle with the throttle. Can you maybe make a replay with telemetry on ?

make positiv camber angle, set ur decel diff to 25% to better turn into Corners, negativ front-toe angle for the same reason (got it at -0,5), and for slow Corners use the first gear, u turn much better and u´ll have a better acc on the Exit

and u can push the last sector much harder, i think u can improve there by about 1 sec
You are right, I could kept up of even in front in first sector chasing someone in time trial. But after the hairpin, people just pull away. Try first gear in the last slow corners, seem no effect for acc out of the last corner. But loss half second if I use first gear for the last two slow corners.
Thumb up for negative front toe in
