F1 22 Spa Setup

Spa-Francorchamps is an absolute classic circuit and is up there alongside Silverstone as one of the all-time great tracks in F1 22. It features an extremely long lap, which consists of a lot of medium to fast corners and some long straights that make perfect overtaking opportunities.

With the new F1 22 cars, downforce through the high-speed corners is incredible, allowing you to take corners such as Raidillon and Blanchimont pretty much flat. However, you do need to look out for the slower and medium-speed corners, as these are where Spa can eat you alive.

La Source and the final chicane are notoriously hard to find traction in these cars, and turns 13 through 16 can be a challenge.

Aerodynamics

But lets start with our aerodynamics for this Belgium F1 22 setup, and we can see how we build a car that is extremely quick and easy to drive around Spa.

I’ve gone with a low downforce approach to this setup which is necessary due to the long straights and fast corners. I’ve set the front wing to 9 and the rear wing to 17. Going any higher than this will simply make you uncompetitive down the long Kemmel Straight.

The focus on the rear wing downforce is crucial to ensuring the car has the best balance through the faster corners. This will give you the most confidence to accelerate through these turns.


Transmission

For the transmission, I’ve gone reasonably balanced with the on-throttle diff set to 78. This will give you good drive through the faster turns while ensuring it isn’t too hard to find traction when accelerating from a slower speed, such as turn 1 and out of the final chicane.

An off-throttle diff at 52 will help the car rotate at slow speeds, compensating for our extremely low front wing aero.


Suspension Geometry

For the suspension geometry you’ll want to go with a time-trial-esque setup of -2.5 front camber, -1.8 rear camber, and then 0.05 and 0.2 on the front and rear toe.


Suspension Setup

And for the suspension, I have softened the car all round. Spa can reward a stiff suspension setup, but it will make the car a lot more unpredictable throughout a long race. There are a lot of bumps, kerbs and undulation around this track, so the soft approach works best to aid with consistency.

Go with 6 on the front suspension and anti-roll bar, 1 on the rear suspension and 2 on the rear anti-roll bar. Then go for a slightly higher than normal ride height of 3 and 5.


Brakes

I’ve taken the usual approach of 100% brake pressure and 50% brake bias for the brakes.


Tyre Setup

And finally, I’ve kept the tyre setup relatively neutral with slightly high front tyre pressures for a little more agility and responsiveness. Go for 24.3 on both front tyres and 21.8 on both rears.

If your tyre setup values are different to these, try to set the closest values you can to my setup as they seem to be different across different console platforms.

Overview

Spa is without a doubt one of the most fun tracks to race around in F1 22. You can have a lot of close battles with the AI and with other drivers and there are a few good overtaking spots. This setup will allow you to keep pace with cars around you while giving you an easy and comfortable car to drive for long distances.
