F1 22 Mexico Setup

Mexico is a track that consists of a few distinctly different sectors. The first sector includes a couple of incredibly long straights that test your car’s top speed. Too much downforce and you’ll struggle to fight for overtakes.

The second sector is a combination of some extremely slow corners such as turns 4, 5 and the double apex turn 6. They’re followed immediately by a series of high-speed corners that test your car’s rear stability. The final sector is the slowest of all, featuring a tight and technical stadium section which tests your car’s rear traction and front downforce.

This all combines to create a track that can be tricky to setup your car for.

Aerodynamics

The first big decision you have to make is with your aero setup. I’ve gone extremely low downforce to give us a car that will be hard to overtake on the long straights. This approach will maximise our competitiveness when fighting for overtakes, as well as focusing on rear stability.

Go with 10 on the front wing and 14 on the rear.


Transmission

I’ve lowered the transmission right down. I’ve gone with an on-throttle differential of just 60. This will help with traction when accelerating from the many slow-speed corners. Then I’ve lowered the off-throttle diff all the way to 50. This will help get the front of the car turned into the slow corners.


Suspension Geometry

For the suspension geometry, I’ve gone for a setup that focuses heavily on straight-line speed. A front camber of -2.5, rear camber of -1, front toe of 0.05 and rear toe of 0.2 will help you achieve the highest top speed you can.


Suspension Setup

For the suspension, I have softened the car all around. I’ve lowered the front suspension and anti-roll bar to 4, as well as lowering the rear suspension and ARB to just 1. This approach will give you a car that is very planted to the road, allowing you to attack every kerb around Mexico.

A ride height of 3 and 5 will ensure the bottom of your car doesn’t ground out over some of the kerbs.


Brakes

I’ve set the brake pressure to 100% as per normal, and the brake bias to 50%.


Tyre Setup

For the tyre pressures, I’ve increased them all around to give you a compliant and responsive car. Go for 24.3 on both front tyres and 22.3 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

Mexico is a tricky circuit to race around. You need a car with great traction, rear stability and most importantly great top speed. This setup achieves all of those things, meaning you should be very competitive.
