When racing a game as authentic as F1 2021, ensuring that the game looks as real as the real sport is important. Simply by matching up the in-game camera angles with those you see on TV can do wonders for your immersion in F1 2021.

Codemasters have included a T-cam camera option for years now, however they don’t match them up to look the same as the real-world T-cams. That is why in this guide, I’m going to show you the best camera settings to get your camera in F1 2021 as close to the real cameras as possible.

I’ll run through individual camera settings for every team, as each team has a slightly different camera setup.

Realistic F1 2021 T-Cam Settings

You will notice a trend with most of my realistic camera settings. Most cars require you to increase the camera height, and lower the angle to look down towards the track. This will almost instantly give you a more realistic camera in F1 2021. You will see more of the drivers helmet, and the top of the sidepods just like you can when watching a live race.

Below are the best settings for each car in F1 2021.
